Celiac Disease And Other Allergies

Recommended Posts

I was diaganosed a while back with Celiac disease and the doctor told me I was also allergic to lactose and fructose. Here's the question...if I did away with the gluten in my diet but continue to use

lactose and fructose products,will the lactose and fructose do damage to my body?

I can only speak for myself; but I noticed that I am way more sensitive now to my food allergens

than when first tested and diagnosed for allergies - which was 20 years ago. I personally

stay away from it all and I have a lot of things that I am allergic to.

Way back when I first was diagnosed, my doctor suggested that I food challenge my

body to find out which items that I was really sensitive to other than the obvious reacting ones.

Trouble for me was - that symptons were different for different food food groups, ie: migraine headaches from

corn, hives from strawberries/shrimp, asthma from soy, etc. So it comes down to a personal choice - can your body handle a little? Also depends on how much damage there is from celiac disease as to whether your body can digest

the allergic proteins. Lots to consider.

Hope I haven't confused you further! :unsure:

I've read many places that lactose intolerance is often a result of celiac disease, but after eliminating gluten for a time the lactose intolerance may diminish. I also had that problem, but in my gluten testing I also got tested for casein sensitivity and found out I had that too, which means I should avoid dairy as much as gluten. If you eat dairy when you are casein sensitive, you can also damage your intestines. So it might be a good idea to get specifically tested for casein sensitivity. As for fructose, it's a HORRIBLE product that no one should eat, period.
