Can Dairy Products Cause The Same Affects As Being Glutened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have been gluten free for almost 2 months, and I am feeling better but I still have really bad days. About a week ago I decided to stop eating dairy products to see if it would help. I accidentally ate some cheese last night and this morning I feel horrible. Almost like someone has beaten me up. My entire body is sore especially my ribcage and my chest. And my neck is so sore I can barely move it side to side. I was just wondering if dairy products can have the same affect as gluten on your body? I'm totally new to all of these problems. My medical issues started in January of this year. I'm so tired of feeling this way, I just want to feel better.

Thank you for responses,

TIFF :)

For me, both gluten and lactose cause diarrhea, gas, bloating. Only difference is the lactose acts a lot quicker!!

I feel the exact same way mushroom does! I feel the lactose within minutes. I feel the gluten the next day. I always, always take Lactaid before I consume dairy, especially ice cream. I wish someone would invent Glutenaid to take before you consume gluten!

As mentioned above, lactose causes gas, bloating and diarrhea if you're lactose intolerant. All three (as also mentioned) can be resolved with Lactaid. However, you might also be sensitive to casein, the protein component in milk. As many as half of celiacs are. Try cutting out all dairy and see if that helps. (Warning: they slip casein in everywhere, including cheese substitutes that are labeled non-dairy.)

Edit: I did a similar thread a few weeks ago seeking help: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.ph...c=59874&hl= Some of the replies are really terrific.
