Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A little while ago I posted because after being gluten-free for a year I was beginning to feel lousy again. Someone asked if it could be milk and I promptly answer no... Never had a problem with it. But it remained in my ears. After not finding answers I eliminated milk and major dairy stuff (ice cream) and stomach issues went away. I eliminated it for a week. The next week I had dairy and stomach issues came back. I have alway been a big milk drinker. What does this mean - have I developed a lactose intolerance. Or could this be temporary? I'll go off it if it keeps me out if the bathroom:) But I do love my milk!!

It could be lactose but it could also be casien, the milk protein. You could ask your doctor for a lactose test or you could try lactose free milk and see if that is better tolerated. If it is lactose intolerance you likely could still eat cheddar or other hard cheeses as those are very low in lactose. Whether this is temporary or not I can't answer. Maybe in a month or two you could try again and see if you are tolerating dairy a bit better.

I had a low positive with Enterolab for casein intolerance and avoided dairy for quite a while but was able to add dairy back in after I had healed more.

Broken record here but I didn't tolerate milk well until I switched to raw dairy. Maybe not a chance many would be willing to take but I have a good farmer whom I trust. He takes good care of his cows.

Is it typical to develop other intolerances after being gluten-free for a while?

I don't know if we develop them or if they were there all along but gluten issues overshadowed them. Unfortunately there are many of us who do have other intolerances. Some are lucky and do have them resolve after we have fully healed.

Same problem here. Been gluten free since april of this year was feeling great. about a month or so ago started feeling bad again all same symptoms back. Got rid of dairy completely for a week or more felt way better! Then went and ate lasagna that I made and know was gluten free and ate it thinking just some cheese no biggie yeah paid dearly for 5 days. Won't do that again. I love milk would drink 2 or 3 glasses a day. Oh how i miss you milk :(

I eliminated cheese when I first went gluten-free, too...and oh, how I craved it. Much worse than eliminating anything with gluten. After about 9 months I started eating hard cheeses like cheddar and parmesan and eventually branched out to include mozzarella so yaaay! Now I can eat pizza again. I've been buying Lactaid milk although I don't use much as I rarely have cereal for breakfast.

So whether I was lactose intolerant before diagnosis, I don't know. Possibly the symptoms were masked by my digestive problems with celiac . But I'm happy that I can tolerate cheese again...just haven't had the courage to make a grilled cheese sandwich with gooey Kraft American singles. I can live with that.
