I Can Eat Lactose Now!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I had asked a while back how long it takes for lactose intolerance to go away on a gluten-free diet. I got 'depends' as an answer. That didn't help! I have more information. I suspected it had gone away in a few weeks but was chicken to try. Then I read somewhere, a book I think, that a doctor recommends his patients to do a lactose challenge at one year gluten-free.

Well I am 4 months gluten-free and ate a gallon of ice cream in two weeks, mostly 3 ice cream cones a day, and my final test, the first dairy food which ever bothered me.. I ate yogurt yesterday with no ill effect :D:rolleyes::unsure::):):):):blink:;) . Yoplait yogurt and it said gluten free right on the container so I wrote them:

their reply first, followed with the email I sent:

>Originated by Consumer It was so nice when I was shopping today to not have to read all your ingredients. It clearly states 'gluten free' so I bought it. I have not eaten yogurt for about 30 years because of lactose but on the gluten free diet I am no longer lactose intolerant and my first though was YOGURT. thank you

Congrats! Feels nice, doesn't it? I did the same experiment, did find I had a slight intolerance and chose to do pills to help. I am slowly putting dairy in my diet now and actually feel like my diet is more balanced. With the pills I am having no reaction. It's really nice to have more options as far as eating!
