Has anyone here tried GlutenEase? It really scares me to try it because I don't want to get sick! Also, at $30 it would be an expensive "experiment"!

I use the dairy enzymes when I eat small amounts of butter or other dairy containing products, but, it does not work super well. Using lactose free items works much better than the pills.

I have heard from several sources that you can wean yourself back onto dairy products, but, I am scared to do that as well because of the digestive problems that come with it.

This is my personal opinion. It sounds like you might be casein intolerant, rather than lactose intolerant. If I am right, you will never outgrow it, and should stay away from dairy for life.

But you may want to try goat's milk (and goat's cheese). It is very low in casein and is supposed to be much better tolerated than cow's milk.

As to the gluten ease: The only reason I would ever take it is, if I have to be in a situation when cross contamination is a possibility, not to purposely eat gluten. I don't think that is a good idea at all. Of course, it's your choice. But you might make yourself ill by experimenting like that.

Glutenease may be ok when you are accidentally glutened or something but it should not give you the right to eat gluten. That's not a smart avenue for celiacs.

Those were my thoughts exactly in regard to GlutenEase. I am not going to willingly eat gluten just because. It may be, like said above, a way to keep from getting sick or sicker just in case something is accidentally consumed, but, I am not willing to put myself at risk.

I never seemed to experience any of the weight loss or malnutrition issues due to gluten, but, I did experience gastrointestinal issues. Having not had any biopsies to determine intestinal damage, I don't know if I had damage or not, but, I intend to stay gluten free anyway.

Thanks for the insight about caesin, I will investigate that further.

I have used the Glutenease everyday for the past week. I cant say that I notice much of a difference- but I am not going out and eating gluten and casien. I am still in the "healing" phase of this since I have only been Gluten-free Casein-free for about 3.5 months now and I wanted to see if the Glutenease helped out at all. It is 30 bucks for 60 pills and I take 2 pills a day during a meal so that comes out to 1 dollar a day- you can buy it in bulk in get discounts.

Let me know how it goes for you.
