Does Milk Make Gluten Intolerance Worse?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've heard many bad things about milk. I'm wondering if the 1% milk I've been drinking is causing my symptoms to be worse. I've been gluten free for awhile now, at least 2 months. I tried going milk free and my symptoms seems to be improving faster. I know if the digestive track is under strain, you basically become intolerant to lactose.

You can be intolerant to lactose, casein, or both with celiac and a damaged gut. A lot of celiacs go off milk until they feel better. I was casein sensitive but did OK with goat dairy. I was able to eat cow dairy again after about nine months.

It's offend recommended that you eliminate dairy from your diet when you go gluten free due to Celiac.

The villi are damaged due to Celiac. Absorption is hindered because of the that damage. Dairy is one of those hindered....

Often, once healing takes place, dairy is re-introduced without an issue.

I'm going to try to reduce or eliminate my dairy intake. I can get vitamin D from the sun and calcium from vegetables. I plan to drink green tea instead of milk. Is there any type of beverage that promotes healing? What else is recommended that I eliminate while I still have symptoms?

Ironically, raw milk is very healing for the intestine and raw also doesn't cause problems digesting lactose because it naturally contains the enzyme needed for digestion. Unfortunately, in most of the USA, raw milk cannot be sold commercially, so one must find a farmer. Since being diagnosed celiac 2 weeks ago, I've been drinking a little raw milk and feel it's helping me.

Keep an eye on soy. Some people find themselves sensitive to it too. Edamame used to tear me up. It's also usually recommended that newly diagnosed celiacs not eat oats, even gluten-free ones. A few celiacs seem to be truly cross-sensitive to oats.

As far as promoting healing, the main thing is to carefully avoid gluten. Cheat or make a mistake during the healing process while you still have a lot of antibodies and you can set yourself back.

Hmm, I've been having gluten free toast in my family's toaster that has toast contain gluten toasted everyday. Should I be worried about such a small dosage of gluten?

That's cool about raw milk. In school I was brainwashed to think raw milk was bad because of no pasteurization and to drink skim milk. Now in 2010 I find skim milk is the least healthy, yes whole milk is healthier since less % protein, and raw milk is the healthiest. I feel lied to and cheated by my schools.

You just have to make sure that raw milk has been tested for bovine tuberculosis. I agree - when we moved from milking our own cows on the farm, to city pasteurized milk, it was awful Once it was homogenized it was even worse. I wouldn't drink it.

I get glutened if someone toasts gluten bread in my toaster - I will no longer permit it - not even my sister who visits infrequently. It's not worth it. I had house guests just recently (old high school friend, husband, and their friend) and I just served everything gluten free and didn't even comment on it (except when I asked Peter what he wanted for breakfast, and he said "Oh, Weetbix, or...." He didn't get a chance to continue because my Dh and I both laughed and said in chorus "Not in this house!")

People's sensitivity to gluten is really variable. Vertical toasters are always a problem. They can trap a lot of crumbs and wheat and you can't see how much or clean it out. A metal toaster oven rack that you remove and clean daily with soap and water before making your gluten-free bread would be OK for a lot of celiacs.

You'll learn to listen to your body and see whether you're one of the celiacs who tolerates 20 ppm gluten, or one who gets sick from 1 ppm and needs an entirely separate toaster.

Great, not what I wanted to hear. I guess I'll learn eventually. I just feel sick almost all the time. A gluten-free diet has already put such a strain on the family budget. Lately I feel like I have to pee all the time. I'll go pee and within 30 secs I have to pee again.

I'm sorry. I hate to be the bearer of bad news about gluten sensitivity.

Needing to pee all the time and feeling sick sure sounds like how I feel with a bladder infection. Have you talked to your doctor?

As for gluten-free and cost, the breads and gluten-free baked goods are really expensive but you don't need them. I eat rice, potatoes, and corn tortillas instead of gluten-free bread to save money.

I live in America so I'm not so sure eating corn is a good idea, unless the corn is from a local farmer. The reason being hybrid seeds and GMOs make allergies skyrocket, let alone all the shenanigans with HFCS. I've been reflecting lately and I think I'm having an intolerance to all dairy. I'm not sure if I'm just intolerant to dairy or intolerant to gluten also.

Assume that I am both celiac and have IBS. What would my diet look like? I'm pretty sure I would need to cut diary, gluten, fried food and a whole lot of other things. Living in America, land of the junk food my options are pretty limited. How would I manage?

Don't you cook? :P

As far as GMO or hybrid corn, I don't worry about it much. If I wanted to eliminate all foods humans have tampered with from my diet, I'd have to head into the hills to shoot a deer and gather wild nuts and seeds. You don't think broccoli or big Idaho potatoes got that way without human intervention and hybridization, do you?

Visit the outside edge of the grocery store where you find all the good stuff. Potatoes, fresh fruits and veggies of all sorts, raw meats, gluten-free lunch meats if you're so inclined, eggs, cheeses if you get dairy tolerant again. Add rice, beans if you tolerate them, corn tortillas (Mission brand has a dedicated line). Olive oil and enough plain herbs and spices (no mixes) to make everything taste good. Then go home and cook healthy food.
