gluten-free, Now More Issues W/ Dairy?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have heard and experienced when you go off of a food that you reaction will be greater when you retrail it, rather than keep eating it. I am curious though as to whether this is normal as well. I have been gluten-free for about a month, any gluten I have got has been from cross contamination or perhaps a trace amount in some ingredient that I missed on something- but I have read all ingredient lists. I have mostly been off of dairy as well (have been for the past year or so). However, I have noticed when I have slip ups lately I am almost immediately in the bathroom or having bad stomach cramps. That never happened before when I had dairy. Yesterday, we were at PF Changs and I ordered the chocolate dome dessert (gluten-free) and ate a bite before I realized that menu was gluten-free, but not necessarily DF. About an hour or so later I was in the bathroom, that was just one bite. Same thing when I ate some cheese the other day. So, is this normal? Does this mean that I have greater issues w/ dairy than I realized, but was masked when I was eating gluten? Or am I just crazy?

It sounds like dairy is a true intolerance for you. Yes, if gluten is also a problem it can mask other issues. You are not crazy. :)

huh, this is just so crazy to me. You know it shouldn't be , but to have some actual confirmation of something rather than these suspicions blows me away. Of course I know both of the kids have not tolerated dairy from nursing them, the older one is currently on it, but I still think it might be an issue. Then my mom tells me the other day that milk gives her diarrhea- but that is good though as she is constipated otherwise. And she told me here while back that my dad gets diarrhea from milk. Plus, I know that dh's grandpa is lactose intolerant as well, seems my poor kids never had a chance.

I, too, found that dairy is a problem with me. Gluten was two thirds of the problem. But it took me a little while to realize that my sinus pressure,reflux, and residual headaches were caused by dairy. My doc just says that if it bothers me to stay away from it, as he doesn't really suggest the lactose intolerance test.

The part of the villi that produces lactase is damaged with Celiac, and so it can cause temporary lactose intolerance... or we can just develop it any time. And, as I understand it, casein is very similar to the gluten protein as far as digestibility, so it seems to me that either way, Celiacs have a high rate of not being able to handle dairy. I have noticed on the forum that the ones who CAN tolerate dairy don't seem to be the majority. That is just my observation.

I am currently trying Goat's milk Kefir. Cow dairy bothers me in any form. Mucus. Coughing. Congestion. So far the Kefir has been fine and it has made my bm's normal for the first time in my life. :)

Some find they can tolerate fermented dairy, but not milk. Some can do goat but not cow. You should try cutting it all out for awhile and then challenge with fermented first to see what happens.

I did try some homemade yogurt a couple of weeks ago(24 hr fermented) it gave me a headache. I didn't expect it as I know the fermented is easier to digest. Before I would eat it a ton and not notice an issue.
