Lactose Intolerant? Ug, I Need Some Help

Recommended Posts

So today is day #3 off gluten after being diagnosed via blood test. I was doing pretty well until I had some spaghetti squash today with pecorino romano cheese on it. Then my stomach started to hurt and feel expanded. I also don't feel well after eating yogurt (I don't eat milk, ice cream or butter much). I thought this was weird because aged cheese and yogurt are supposed to be very low in lactose, but still I think that I've developed a temporary intolerance for it, which I've heard is common. My endoscopy is on Friday, and the doctor said he'd be able to determine if I have it from that. Should I continue to eat dairy products until then? If I stop now, could it affect the results?

Also, I've heard that it can take 3-9 months for the body to heal itself enough to try to reintegrate dairy back into the diet. Has anyone here developed a permanent intolerance? Oh, I don't want to give up chocolate :(

No, going off dairy will not affect your biopsy results.

Awesome. Then I think I'm just going to go off it....except I do have a small piece of dark chocolate every night....maybe I'll keep that in till I get the test results....I think I may go crazy otherwise.

Ah, I checked. I eat Dove dark chocolate, and there's milk in it. Anyone have any favorite brands? (maybe one that won't break my bank account in chocolate alone? ;) )

well I know I was lactose intolerant, was cool if I took lactose pills, if those don't work for you then, you may have developed Casein intolerance, which means the protein get's you, not the sugar, so lactose pills won't help that =/ I learned that the hard way <_<


Gluten Free since Xmas 2010

It's amazing to me that you went dairy free so quick after your celiac diagnosis. What prompted you to do it? I have been gluten free since Sept 10 but have not omitted anything else from my diet because I think I want to be in denial that I have other intolerances!!! However after 7 months gluten free, I still am not "regular" like I thought I would be. Bloating gone but still other GI problems. I was worried about dairy and corn just because I hear about so many other celiacs that have issues with them!
