How Do I Know If Dairy Is A Problem?

Recommended Posts


So I never knew gluten was a problem until I had my tests since my problems were mostly neuro...So if I had a problem with dairy, would it manifest itself in the same way? Or would I have gut problems, since it is not an autoimmune response (i don't think).

I started to go dairy-light (only milk in my tea) but I don't know if it made any difference.

Probably a stupid question but if anything will help my intestines heal faster, hopefully my nerves may get better etcetc. so if dairy is a risk, i would cut it out.



TTG >200 (normal <10)

Endoscopy showed damage that looked like "classic celiac", biopsy showed total villous atrophy

Only real symptoms are huge weight loss and neuropathy

If you are unable to digest lactose in dairy, you will know right away because the dairy will ferment in the gut and you will become very gassy and likely have diarrhea. Casein is a different question - I believe a casein intolerance can manifest in different ways and I will leave it to the casein intolerant to answer.
