Hey! Can I Have Dairy Now!? Confuzeion..

Recommended Posts

Gluten free/dairy free & struggling with figuring out diet for around 7 years.

I live at home right now and since it's been so damned hot I keep needing something cool to drink. Mostly I drink water but I've been having my mom's Fuze Slenderize too because cool water doesn't always cut it. Well trying to help out I went ahead and bought an armful of different flavors so she had some (I destroyed them all) and I could have some too. But when I went to drink one, I looked at the bottle and noticed it had milk in it and wasn't the slenderize version at all.

Then I remembered that the other day I drank some guava version (it's another milk version) completely oblivious to the milk thing and thought it was great. Don't really remember getting sick or anything or feeling weirder than usual (typical dizziness & periods of hypoglycemia which I haven't solved), have done all right at my job which is physically intense, and feel not so bad right now. I'm kind of considering trying to drink this colada thing and trying but I have to work all day in front of a crowd tomorrow so just in case maybe I should wait.

Anyway if it's true, that is so awesome. I've always completely avoided milk, but knew it wasn't that plague like gluten. Even if I'm not intolerant anymore there won't be cheese and ice cream stuffed all over my fridge tomorrow because it's been so long my body isn't even interested in it anymore. Yogurt is probably the only thing I miss but not that much.

Actually I feel really excited and great right now but still will wait. No matter if it's toe jam, it's nice to have one less allergen/intolerance to keep checking for all the time.

Yeah Its problaly that your intestines have healed enough to have milk products. I have been told that celiacs sometimes have problems with lactose until the intestines heal.

If you have an allergy to cow's milk you will probably react. It may take a few days or longer of eating milk products to raise the antibody levels enough to cause the reaction. Some celiacs can tolerate home made cows milk yogurt, digested over night, as the casein is digested. Many people use goats milk products, I like goat milk kefir. Commercial yogurts are not digested long enough to destroy the casein. See the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for yogurt recipes.

Many celiacs have lost their ability to produce lactase, the enzyme that digests lactose in milk . Lactose is posionous to our bodies. Younger celiacs often regain their ability to produce lactase and can tolerate milk again. Older people, many asians, africans and native americans do not produce lactase so will not tolerate milk. Some of these people can tolerate milk if they take the lactase enzyme supplement.
