Desperate About Cheese

It seems as if no celiacs have problems with cheese, but that seems hard to believe, I and other celiacs that I know of, get a reaction from eating plain (European) cheese, with no additional ingredients. I have no other allergies than gluten, so I

Are you sure you're not casein sensitive as well as gluten sensitive? That's not exactly a milk allergy, but an intolerance, like lactose intolerance. Can you digest other dairy products (than cheese) okay? I know plenty of celiacs (esp. newly diagnosed ones) who can't digest dairy products. Some are lactose intolerant, some also have casein antibodies. So they must avoid ALL dairy. Does anyone know of a dairy free, gluten free cheese??? ;)

You mentioned being lactose intolerant. Before I was diagnosed and for the previous seven years I was lactose intolerant. I had always eaten yogurt for breakfast and been a big cheese fan but as my disease progressed I had to give them up. Since being diagnosed three years ago, I now eat both with no trouble. It did take a while before I could tolerate either and I was reluctant to try them at first but I really missed the yogurt. It's now a regular part of my breakfast again. :) But I've not heard of a cheese that's both dairy and gluten free.

HI there,

I had to give up all dairy for many months after starting the gluten-free diet. I would get the worst stomach pains, etc after ingesting any dairy product (even butter!). However, in the past week, I have reintroduced dairy 3 times without any problem. (I have been totally gluten-free since august 2003 and totally dairy-free since Jan. 2004.) I even ate ice cream this week without a problem!

Hard cheeses are the safest bet for celiacs if you have no other intolerances or allergies. Don't buy low-fat (since wheat could be in there) or flavored cheese. Eat the real thing.

At the natural foods markets around here, I have seen gluten-free, dairy-free cheese. It is made from soy. You might check for that if you have no other options. In fact, I buy frozen pizzas that have gluten-free rice crusts and soy cheese. They are completely gluten-free, casein-free and dairy-free.

    • Hello all! Does anyone take the Claritin non drowsy reditabs for indoor and outdoor allergies? Its the dissolvable ones. I was prescribed loratadine as prescription but pharmacist told me the pill form had gluten in its ingredients and that this Claritin reditabs were gluten free. I will call manufacture company as well just wanted to see if my fellow celiacs took this or what type of allergy medicine do you guys take? Any advice is helpful. Also for my post nasal drip I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray. I have yet to use this as it is the generic equivalent for Flonase. Anyone know if it is gluten free? The manufacturing company said they could not state if it was free of gluten because they do not test it but she did say nothing in the inactive ingredients looks like it contains gluten???? I really  need to you a nasal spray as I cannot breathe or swallow due to allergies in the air.
    • It won't let me attach a picture. It's the Pure Beef Protein Isolate French Vanilla with vanilla seeds in the front.  
    • Thanks everyone!  The L-Glutamine is from Nutri-Dyne and the Paleo Protein is from Dynamic and is sold by Nutri-Dyne. Is this the brand you got sick from? 
    • Hi kelzz..........the only way you will find out if the increase is from gluten exposure is to have your doctor run the correct test.  I have said this a million times on this forum but I will say it again.....the DGP/IgA tests for reaction to gluten ingested. The tTg/IgA tests for intestinal damage and that can be elevated from other autoimmune diseases, or from ingested gluten.  So you are either being glutened in sneaky ways OR you may have another autoimmune issue going on. Sorry my answer is so late but I have been on vacation. I hope this information helps you!
    • Ok, so long story, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable folks can chime in and tell me if a) I'm not crazy for thinking this sounds a lot like celiac and not a lot like anything else and  are the tests being run the right ones? I had malabsorbtion symptoms my whole life, rashes on the inside of my elbows and knees, chronic constipation, chelisis, brittle cracking nails, my hair sheds a ton, irritation on the edges of my scalp, blistery rashes on my hands, low iron, low blood sugar, bloating, painful gas (like bring me to my knees type). I pretty much just accepted it as my normal, and when I went to get the skin issues checked out in my early 30s, I was just told it was eczema and sent away. The rashes on the insides of my elbows and knees went away when I was about 15 or so, but in my 20s I started seeing a blistery, itchy rash on my elbows occasionally. Fast forward to 2015, and I have a terrible outbreak of GI symptoms (always constipation with me, with the occasional horrible D experience sprinkled in) along with a pretty bad itchy rash on both elbows. I start researching and find that a lot of what I have experienced sounds like DH/celiac. By the time I get my referral in and appointment to the GI doc, I've decided to cut milk out of my diet. I thought back to when I had the last period of time where I had no GI symptoms, and it was when I was last deployed. The dairy in the chow hall was either expired or near it, so I lived on eggs, rice, and chicken, and hot sauce. ;p. Once I cut out milk, and I saw a pretty impressive relief of most of my symptoms. The chelisis is gone, my rash disappears, bloating is much better, gas pains are gone. I get tested for celiac- negative, lactose intolerance- negative, SIBO- positive. Two rounds of antibiotics 6 months apart and my SIBO (methane type) clears up. Basically they said I had IBS-C and my skin issues were likely unrelated. I'm pretty sure my issue with milk is casein-related, because my son has the same issues with casein, and I sure have GI issues when I drink it. (TMI... mucousy rabbit poo). So I figure most of my issues have cleared up, no active rashes, good right? Nope. Since then, I had a couple outbreaks on my elbows, but they went away fairly quickly, My scalp rash thing ebbed and flowed, and my hair still sheds a ridiculous amount. About a month ago, I had another rash outbreak on both elbows, a couple blisters on my hands... and it stayed. After a month of rash, I finally contacted my doc and said "look, this rash is active, please take a look." Just as if it sensed it, the rash started clearing, that same day. :-< By the time I saw her a week and a half later, it was gone, save for a couple scabs. So, good news is my doc disagreed with the GI doc and said it sounded auto-immune to her. I'm military, so I get what I get for referrals, labs, and doctors, but she's luckily very good and knowledgeable. She ran the following tests: Complement Panel: Awaiting results C-Reactive Protein: Awaiting results Celiac Disease Ab IgA Panel: Awaiting results Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA: Awaiting results
      Gliadin Ab IgA: Awaiting results Endomysial Ab IgA: Awaiting results Rheumatoid Factor: NEG Comprehensive Metabolic Panel W/eGFR: Normal with the exception of a higher than normal Urea Nitrogen/Creatinine (indicates poor kidney function or bleeding in intestines (ding ding ding) My GFR was normal, so kidneys are probably okay. ESR: 9 (normal is 0-20) Indicates inflammation
