I Tried Diary Today!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was very bold today. I went off dairy when I was diagnosed, and my doctor suggested trying it again at the six month mark (beginning of October). I would get horrible stomach contractions and cramps from dairy products with even low lactose levels like yogurt and aged cheeses, so I was hoping that I wasn't casein intolerant, too. But I've occasionally had small amounts of other foods with low lactose levels that my doctor okayed and I've felt fine (butter when making cookies, dark chocolate and chocolate chips), but I haven't had any hard dairy products...before now.

Anyway, my mother was in town and left an extra greek yogurt in the fridge when she left....it's been five months, and my ttg levels have gone down rapidly, so I figured I'd give it a shot. It felt as though my stomach recognized that I ate something that I don't normally eat, but I didn't feel bad - no crippling stomach cramps or pain! Woohoo!

I still think my body needs a little more time to heal so I won't be having dairy all the time, but it's so nice that I didn't get sick. Maybe I'll try gluten-free pizza soon!

Just wanted to share. Gotta count every small victory :)

Ugg do I feel like a goof. The title of this thread is supposed to be I Tried Dairy Today, not "diary". But I can't figure out how to change it....opps :P

Yay!!! I went off dairy for about a week after being diagnosed, so good job on the waiting!!! It's hard enough going gluten-free, so good for you!! Worth the wait I am sure... ;)

I have a problem with casein, but I can tolerate goats milk products, especially cheese made from it. Goats milk is considered by nutritionists to be much better than cows milk for humans, and I find that I have no digestive issues with it at all.

I was off dairy for about 10 years. It took me a long time to get diagnosed. Now I can tolerate it again! I really enjoy cheese. I don't see how I would keep my weight up otherwise.

I am also happy to say that I have successfully started to enjoy dairy again and its been over a year. I like almond milk but tea, coffee and cereal (gluten-free of course) just didn't taste the same. I have at least been buying organic, grass-fed, non-homogenized from the local organic store. I can't be happier, I feel like I am regaining a part of my life that I lost for the last 18 months. I also tried my first gluten-free pizza with real cheese and it was fantastic,

for all of you out there that are still struggling with the major part of your healing, be encouraged because I was there where you are now and I was miserable and it seems like you will never get better, but I made it through!!!! yeah! and so can you!!!`
