Ok, so for way long before the whole gluten-free thing, I've always been lactose sensitive. In that if I eat a bowl of ice cream and drink a glass of milk, I'm probably going to get D. But dairy in general doesn't seem to bother me (I can most certainly but cheese on things, glass of milk here and there, bowl of ice cream now and then...just not all at once).

Last nite I ate a bowl of some insanely delicious super chocolately ice cream. (I also drank a glass and a half of milke yesterday.) And now today I am not feelin' so good. I've been playing with the idea of cutting out dairy for a month or two since going gluten-free because apparently dairy is hard to digest when you've damaged your intenstines for the past 24 years. Either way, it's been two months and I still feel kinda crappy in general. So there's obviously something going on yet, whether it be another sensitivity or unintentional glutening through ignorance.

So here's my question(s):

Should I cut out dairy?

And if so, how strict do I need to be?

Cheese has never bothered me. I'm originally from Wisconsin, and if I stop eating cheese, I may never be allowed back in the state to visit my parents. Also, I might lose my mind.

What if I just stop drinking milk and eating ice cream for a month or two, but continue to put cheese on things (beans and rice would just suck without any monterey jack...)?

You could try that.

I went dairy free, almost, after a month of being gluten free because it was clear that dairy was giving me a problem, in my case bloating, C and irritability. I have eaten it a few times since then thinking MAYBE it has been long enough and I have found out every time that it is a no. I find it funny to say but I don't really miss it and I loved cheese. Smoked applewood cheddar from the deli down the street comes to mind, I tried to talk my husband into buying some just so I could have it in the house. :lol: Some people tolerate goat cheese a little better.

Does this mean I should cross Wisconsin off my places to see? :)

I had to give up dairy initially, but after six months I was able to reintroduce it... although with my fibromyalgia symptoms still lingering, it has been suggested that I eliminate dairy and soy again. I don't want to.

Yay Rinne! You gave the right answer.

I will start by cutting out the blatant over-use of dairy. But not the highly delicous complimentary ingredient that gets all melty and stringy.

I've found that I don't miss a lot of things. Breads and pastas, mostly. And the only time I ever crave anything is when someone has it sitting in front of me. Like a pizza. Or a toasty sandwich with melted CHEESE on it.

Like yesterday I was in a gas station/Subway. And it smelled SO GOOD. The line was like 15 people long, and I was fine with waiting. I could've stood there and just smelled the air for hours. YUM.

And the great state of Wisconsin would probably still love to have you come visit. One little bite won't hurt (haha....people say that to me about gluten. Yes. Yes it will.)

I'd definitely go dairy-free awhile to find out if it's a problem. You should eliminate it entirely - that's the best (if not the only) way to get results. It was for me, as with so many here. I didn't want to give it up either, but in actuality you don't have to. There are non-dairy cheeses you can use, though be sure to check the ingredients since many have casein (the primary milk protein). If you tolerate casein but not lactose, then you'll have more choices for alternatives. I just don't eat cheese anymore, and I don't crave it either. It seems our bodies often develop chemical addictions to substances we shouldn't be ingesting in the first place. I do plan on making some pizza one of these days though, but when I do it will be with a non-dairy cheese. Here's one example product: http://www.galaxyfoods.com/ourbrands/usa/vegan.asp

I did read a recent post saying that hard cheeses were ok with them, but not various other dairy products. I haven't gone digging for answers on how or why this might be so.

    • Can you guys tell me if you think any of these ingredients look suspicious? I didn't think so, but wanted to make sure. I know if I call the company they'll just tell me to read the ingredients. This is for Redken All Soft shampoo.  ALL INGREDIENTS AQUA/WATER/EAU, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, DIMETHICONE, DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE, GLYCOL DISTEARATE, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM CHLORIDE, COCAMIDE MIPA, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, SODIUM PCA, SALICYLIC ACID, BENZOIC ACID, GUAR HYDROXYPROPYLTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, CARBOMER, CITRIC ACID, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM CITRATE, DISODIUM EDTA, SODIUM COCOYL AMINO ACIDS, POTASSIUM DIMETHICONE PEG-7 PANTHENYL PHOSPHATE, SODIUM SARCOSINATE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, ARGININE, HYDROLYZED SOY PROTEIN, COUMARIN, LINALOOL, LIMONENE, FUMARIC ACID, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN PG-PROPYL SILANETRIOL, CI 15510/ORANGE 4, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 17200/RED 33, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE (D184463/1) and the conditioner: ALL INGREDIENTS AQUA/WATER, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, ELAEIS GUINEENSIS OIL/PALM OIL, CETYL ALCOHOL, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, STEARAMIDOPROPYL DIMETHYLAMINE, OCTYLDODECANOL, SODIUM PCA, PARFUM/ FRAGRANCE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM COCOYL AMINO ACIDS, CHLORHEXIDINE DIHYDROCHLORIDE, STEARYL ALCOHOL, MYRISTYL ALCOHOL, POTASSIUM DIMETHICONE PEG-7 PANTHENYL PHOSPHATE, SODIUM SARCOSINATE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, ARGININE, HYDROLYZED SOY PROTEIN, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN PG-PROPYL SILANETRIOL, SODIUM CHLORIDE, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE (D184537/1)    
    • Here is yet another link to a gluten-free host to purchase: http://www.glutenfreehosts.com/index.php  
    • I believe acidic foods can cause them, so the lemon juice could be the culprit.  I get them if I eat a lot of tomatoes or drink a lot of coffee (again, the acids) or if I am sick. And definitely stress/illness.  Many autoimmune diseases come with these ulcers and it is thought that it is a result of the inflammation.  My gluten challenge brought on a mouth full of sores and swollen gums that affected my teeth (nerve pain and loose teeth). I have always found that gargling with warm salt water helps quite a bit with the healing process.  Don't swallow it!  Also, you can get a paste from your dentist that you put on it at bed time that also helps it heal, but I have no idea if it's gluten free.    
    • I am Catholic and my daughter, who is NCGS, DOES have problems with the low gluten host (it's either the host or the way it is handled. There is no way to really know).  Her symptoms are primarily neurological.  I provided the following link to our priest with details about her reaction (she cannot walk, has balance issues, numbness of arms and legs). http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm His solution was to order her a separate small chalice that is consecrated with everything else but is off to the side on the alter to prevent cc.  Then my husband, who is a Eucharistic minister administers the cup to her.  I am currently recovering from my own gluten challenge (I am also NCGS) and am staying away from all gluten even processed gluten-free under 20ppm foods because I want to heal, so I have not tried the low gluten host and also receive from the chalice with my daughter. When we travel we abstain from receiving and pray for a spiritual communion.   Talk to your priest. Send him the link above, which is from the USCCB.  There is a pastoral solution.  
    • Hello, I am new here I went for blood tests at back in April and the blood test showed a lack in Vitamin D, low in iron (I was previously in January anemic and given iron tablets for this) and positive for Celiac Disease. I have since then been referred for an endoscopy which I had an appointment for on Thursday last week. I went along expecting to have the endoscopy but I was seen by a consultant who says I will have to wait another 2-4 weeks for the endoscopy and that I will also need a scan for my bones. He has told me that my blood results are undisputable for having celiac disease but I have to have the endoscopy to have it clinically proven so I am not to cut any gluten out but as soon as I have had it I am to cut it out. I have been having a look around reading various forums and have now found myself feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing. I am trying to work out what I can and can not eat once I have had the endoscopy so I can get some bits in and be prepared. I am also due to go on a 2 week all inclusive holiday to Turkey in July and am now really worried about what I should do. Any help or advise anyone can offer would be gratefully received. Michelle x
