Not Sure If It's Gluten Or Lactose Free Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been on a gluten free diet for about two months now, and though it hasn't taken everything away, it has helped some.

This past weekend, I decided to be adventurous (aka stupid) and try out a cereal that said 'wheat free'; little did I know this doesn't mean gluten free. Around the same time I started eating the cereal, I started consuming lactose free milk.

Since I was little, milk has given me gas (sorry to be blunt) and when I got older, it made me nauseous and bloated so I took it out of my diet. I can handle small amounts of cheese or dairy in baked goods, but not straight up.

Anyhow, ever since I started having the cereal that, I just discovered, has a lot of gluten and started consuming lactose free milk, I have been sick every morning after breakfast. Cramping, burning, having to go to the bathroom a lot, gassy...the works, it's so annoying.

I'm going to take out the gluten first, because I think that was it (since I haven't had gluten in 2 months and haven't felt this bad since). But has anyone ever reacted like this to LACTOSE FREE milk? I was recently tested for a casein allergy and don't have that, so I can't understand how it could be the lactose free milk. OR does it sound like I've been glutened? Which I have, just don't know if the gluten is really making me feel this bad...

Maybe you have an intolerance to Carageenan. I can't drink ANY of the nut milks or even rice milk because they have Carageenan in them...

be well B)

They're talking about normal milk with the lactose taken out, not an alternative milk.

In answer to your question, joyful, I think you got glutened, but I would lay off the milk until you feel better anyway, THEN try it again with gluten-free cereal.

I would guess it's the cereal if you have no milk intolerances other than lactose. Maybe remove both from your diet for a few days then reintroduce the lactose free milk.

I drink Lactaid everyday and don't have any problems.
