Definitely Casein Intolerant....

Okay, since I have been sugar/dairy/caffeine free, my symptoms have diminished, except for the diarrhea, but with the Immodium, that at least has slowed somewhat.....

Today, I munched a bit on some Doritos Ranch Flavour - deliberately, it has sodium caseinate and milk ingredients in it.... Sure enough, 1/2 hour after eating some, the old burning, pain, gas came back...... I definitely think it is casein now..... the only other possibility is lactose, but I am leaning toward casein....

Buy some Lactid Milk, or whatever it's called. Hrrmm.. you can buy it at stores, and it's basically Milk, but they remove the lactose or something. Have a nice big glass, and if later you feel like dying.. then it is the casein!

Err.. some bad humor in that. But I reacted exactly the same to that stuff, if it had been a normal glass of milk. That was before I knew something called casein existed, lol.

But if there were milk ingredients.. could have been some lactose too? In my non-expert opinion, I'd say get the enterolab milk testing, try Lactid, or just aviod all milk products forever.

If you think it's the casein though, and don't feel like any more testing, then go with avioding milk products. I don't know of anyway of getting around a casein intolerance.

Hope this helped! =)

I had a totallyGf dinner last night and still had an upset stomach. I noticed though, that there were several dairy products. I think I will try a lactose free diet for a while and see what happens.

Hey Rian: You can determine whether you have problems with lactose (milk sugar) or other dairy ingredients (like casein, milk protein, or whey) by using 'lactaid' supplements (chewable tablets) when you consume dairy or drinking 'lactaid' or 'Dairyease' milk. If you STILL have problems even after using lactaid, you're probably sensitive to other dairy ingredients and will have to avoid all dairy to prevent uncomfortable symptoms. :o

    • I'm not sure if it's lactose. If I experiment and still feel awful from it it might be that. And I want to try making those nut cheeses sometime soon. I ordered some cooking stuff and mesh strainers to try and make almond milk so maybe I'll try making some cheese at the same time. Coconut cheese sounds intriguing. I'll look that up too. Nut butters I over did and then didn't feel so great but that was over 6 months ago so I could try a little and see. I could just start with small amounts. I think too my stomach just couldn't digest fat at all before and it seems like it's a bit better now. Avocado I can do now! I couldn't before and I'm so glad it's back. But I've only sliced it into salads so far so avocado ice cream and guacamole sound crazy good to me right now. Anything I can make ahead and keep for a few days is good too. Avocado frosting - can I eat that just with a spoon? I know the thing about having milk from animals. I don't know if it really helps but when I have had any I try to find somewhere where it's not mass produced. Like there is a family near by that has some goats and you can have milk but they only do that in the spring and summer. The goats seem okay but I know what you mean. And it is pretty weird if you think about it. : (  
    • That would be awesome! We could go out for coffee or round each others houses and play some games or just chat like Ennis said. By the way I suck at most games except a few so you or Ennis are almost guaranteed a win! But I have fun anyways, haha.
    • Yeah, it's when too many things happen at once and you suddenly have to take all this time and thought to deal with them, plus the stress on top of it. That's a LOT you had in a very short time. I hope things settle down for you soon but I know it takes time to figure everything out. Omg, a vacation in Hawaii or something, lol, then I'll be okay! But I think what I'm figuring out is that you have to MAKE your own mini vacations every single day or you go insane. So the suggestions people made above are really good I think to redirect your attention to goals and actively DO something towards them. Even playing games and things like that can be a goal. There's goals inside the game and also the goal of giving your mind a break and treating yourself well. I don't do this at all lately and I'm feeling it. Just spinning round inside my head and I need to STOP that now. lol. Even though you have so much going on I hope you can find time in the day too to be good to yourself.
    • I react to any product derived from cows milk but i can eat small amounts of  goats milk cheese,yogurt and kefir. However i cant drink goats milk.I think you should try goats milk kefir, it has a good amount of fat,bilions of probtics  And butter! Contains small amount of lactose (especially when you make ghee from it)  i buy goat butter  from a certified gluten free brand ( I live in Turkey , though, I dont which brands are gluten-free in your country)
    • Had my biopsy yesterday. No formal results yet but dr said there was a lot of inflammation and thickening of the wall. So he is sending me for a CT scan with IV contrast. He said he wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything “pushing” on the intestines. This has panicked me. Anyone have similar issues? He also said I had Duodenitis which I have read can be caused from Celiac. Thoughts?
