Lactose Intollerance And Celiacs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I hope someone can help me. My child is gluten intollerant with all the signs of celiacs(including DH). She hasn't been formally tested as she is just 12 mths old. I have heard somewhere that celiacs are often also lactose intollerant. I have also heard that celiacs can also sometimes tolerate yoghurt because it has a and b cultures in it and this helps break down the lactose. Now my daughter has been gluten free for about three months and all signs of the gluten are out of her system. She eats yoghurt with no reactions. She is on a lactose based formula (here is where it gets tricky) The formula contains bifidus cultures found in yoghurt. She is fine with this. Over the past week I have been giving her small amounts of cows milk in with her formula. She has had diarrhoea like with the gluten but not as severe and the eczema has returned but also not as severe. I am wondering wherther the bifidus in the formula is helping her tolerate it?She is on heinz nurture gold follow on (we live in australia) I also should mention that she ate some gluten free crackers recently with msg on them however she has had them before with no ill effects. All comments are welcome. Thanks for your help

It sounds like with the cows milk she is having the reactions. Maybe you need to try rice milk or soy milk. You could always ask the pediatrician. After being diagnosed with celiac and going gluten free to help recover most people have to go off dairy. It was about a year after I went gluten free that I had problems with dairy and I went off it for about 6 months before re-introducing it back into my diet. But it wasn't everything dairy, just milk and cheeses. I did fine with ice cream (gluten free of course) and yogurt. Change your childs milk, if any questions ask the doctor, hoepfully they will be able to help. :rolleyes:

It's my understanding that when gluten attacks the cells which help break down proteins they get so destroyed that other proteins typically broken down easily don't get broken down which can cause reactions. (Thus, the inability to process dairy.)

My son is gluten free and dairy free. He has tollerated little bits of dairy here and there, but whenever gluten has accidentally gotten into his system, he has a difficult time with any dairy as well as meat and soy proteins.

We basicly eat vegan, gluten free with very little soy.

It's difficult, but worth every effort knowing if we don't eliminate the proper foods it's awful for my son!

Eliminating foods that cause even the slightest discomfort is the best way for healing to begin.

Listen carefully to our bodies which are trying so desperately to tell us something!

My daughter, nearly a year on, still gets exzema from dairy. I give her soya milk, although i do give her cheese every so often, and dairy chocolate ;) Yes she itches and i have to put loads of cream on, but i can't deprive her of everything. BUT i can't tolerate dairy so at least i know where the dairy thing comes from :D
