Confused About Dairy Reaction

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I have not cut out dairy since going gluten free. I don't know if I am reacting to it or not. Would there be an immediate reaction? All the time? Milk, cheese, etc. Most of the time I eat these things and really have no reaction.......but.....something is still making me sick!!! If I consume milk daily, have I built up a tolerance to it and maybe my reaction wouldn't be so bad? If I give it up, how long before I should notice improvement? I went soy instead of milk for a week and nothing changed......tried lactaid, too......and still the same.

There seem to be some predictable outcomes after starting the gluten-free diet such as eliminating dairy, soy and other foods. For me, diarrhea stopped one day dairy free and in fact constipated followed. (But increasing vegetables helped with that.) A food diary may help pinpoint exactly what food may be a trigger. Soy is now out for me but almond beverage seems to be alright. Eliminating (the word sounds so, so final) a food from your diet may seem daunting but I promise you that feeling better offsets any emotional attachment to that food. For some, cutting the dairy is only a short course until it is tolerable again. I hope you feel better.
