Not Sure What To Think About This Reaction

Recommended Posts

As I've stated before I have gone gluten free as I believe it's a problem for me. The 2 blood tests my doc did came back negative. I've been gluten free since the day after Thanksgiving. Except a couple of times I think I was accidently glutened. Yesterday I ate some cottage cheese and fruit. I felt overwhelmingly tired almost immediately afterwards. I layed down and fell asleep for about 20 minutes. When I got up I was still fatigued feeling. Soon after I started having d. I haven't eaten since and my stomach still feels a little uneasy. I re-read the ingredients and from what I can tell it's gluten free. It was Breakstone's brand which is a Kraft brand. They state that their modified food starch comes from corn. I have sent them an email asking specifically about this product to see what they say. I had a similar reaction to Breyer's vanilla ice cream which also seems to be gluten free. Now I'm starting to wonder if I also have a milk or dairy allergy/intolerance. Does this sound like what this is? I have never noticed that I have a problem with milk or dairy products. I use half and half in my coffee every morning. I appreciate your feedback.

Hope you feel better soon!

Many people find that after going gluten-free, they become more sensitive to dairy. That's because the part of your intestine that absorbs and digests dairy is the most easily damaged, and the last part to heal - the tips of the villi. I'd suggest cutting out dairy for a few weeks and see if that helps at all. Many people also find their reactions to dairy to be similar to gluten, which could explain why you felt you'd been glutened yesterday.

Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.
