Should I Go Dairy Free?

Recommended Posts

I start the gluten-free diet in 4 days, I have seen conflicting opinions about if Celiac and Lactose intolerance allways go together. I was thinking of doing the Gluten free for 3 months, and then if there was not enough or no improvement to stop the dairy as well. Is this the right way to start?

Thanks

If I were you I'd go dairy-free from the start.

Better than wishing you had later on.

Many celiacs find they're fine w/ dairy w/in 6mos.

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Hi;

Yes , I took out Dairy and Soy as well.

I really make sure that all my Food is Gluten Free and Peanut, tree nut, Fish,Shell Fish , Honey free and that they are not CC'd Crossed Contaminated in a Facility that produces these foods.

I do not worry about CC with Dairy and Soy definatly Gluten. ( that is the recommendation of my Nutrisionist).

I would make sure that you are not having food allergies as well , You might want to get tested by an Allergist.

What ever you decide to do, what I would NOT recommend you do is replace a lot of your gluten foods with loads more dairy! Some people make that mistake in the beginning. So if you decide to keep dairy in your diet for now, just stick to moderate amounts.

If I were starting it all again, I would do both at once. Then if at some point you want to add milk back in, do so. IMO it is mentally easier to take it all out then test 1 at a time rather than take 1 out at a time and still not be there.

I have to agree. I cut out dairy and gluten at the same time at first, then went back to dairy because I thought it didn't bother me. But now, I realize it does, and it's much harder this time around to wrap my head around another food I can't eat... so, do it now and stick to it for 6 mos or so. It'll be easier in the long run.
