Gluten Free Trial With Dairy?

Recommended Posts

I am one week into a gluten free trial. I have had the symptoms of celiacs strongly and consistently for a long time now, despite blood tests coming back normal. Since I don' thave the money to get further testing done, I am hoping that by going gluten free I can improve my condition if it is indeed a gluten intolerance.

I also began eliminating dairy when I was told that lactose cannot be digested due to the "damaged villi," at least until it heals. I'm wondering, however, if the elimination of dairy is really necessary just to see if gluten intolerance is the problem? I feel like I am hurting my diet with lack of protein and other benefits of dairy, and would rather not continue to eliminate it unless I know that I do indeed have damaged vili from a celiac condition.

If I eliminate gluten but not dairy, should I still see results if celiac is my condition? Or will eating dairy mess up the results so I wouldn't know?


determined to solve this and take on a new kind of life...

...lost in the mess

First of all, consuming dairy that is homogenized and/or pasteurized is of no benefit to anybody. You can't even absorb the calcium from milk, since the enzyme that allows us to do that is killed with pasteurization.

And secondly, even though it is possible that you would see some benefit from the gluten-free diet without taking dairy out of your diet, it isn't all that likely.

Why do you worry about getting enough protein without dairy? Unless you are a vegetarian, that is a needless worry.
