An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
As was explained to me - Your gut heals and yes, you probably could eat gluten again and not feel any ill affect, for a while. However....! The damage is starting all over again. Like picking a scab off of a sore. Sort of a nasty comparison but accurate. Celiac never goes away. Google the banana babies. Very interesting as it fully explains why celiac was once thought to be a childhood disease,
I wouldn't worry about the oven. We moved in a rental house short term while waiting for our current home to go through and I wiped out the oven and then used it. No problems. When visiting a friend who cooks pies all the time I just pop a loose piece of tin foil over my stuff. I think covering the stuff is more for my mental health than anything else!
Wouldn't! Couldn't! Shouldn't! Oh my! I hear what some are saying about keeping areas clean, but no way. I get not wanting to cook for a big group but a couple pretty easy, and cost effective, thoughts are a simple crock pot or two of chili, taco bar, potato bar or a salad bar. I just did a Xmas party for 22 people, only 4 of us are gluten free, and did crock pots of chili. for bread I bought gluten free hamburger buns, sliced them and then quartered them. It made great bread garlic bread..
Here is a nice thread where Ennis_tx has posted many dairy free link/resources in case you have not read this thread yet.
Also to answer your main question about Casein and as Awol noted about their being a difference about lactose and casein since lactose free cheese can still cause problems.
See these livestrong links that summarizes the difference between lactose and casein and why it is usually the casein most people react too.
I would also review your medicine's. I had a bad reaction to my BP medicine Losartan causing my dairy allergy to resurface.
after 6 weeks off it my villi seems to be able to tolerate dairy again.
I hope this is helpful and I hope you find out what is causing you your dairy problems.
A little testing should help you determine if it the casein or the lactose in the dairy is the problem.
Lactaid can help with the lactose problem. Or as Awol noted try a lactose free cheese to see if dairy still bother's you . . . then it might the casein or check your medicine's as it was in my case causing my dairy problem.
People do grow out of a dairy problem often. . . so don't give up on it entirely.
Check back in 6 months and see if your villi have healed. Mine did.
I had a terrible milk allergy as a kid but grew out of it in time. Thanks be to God.
But do check your medicine (if you take any) their might be something else ( that have taken for granite is safe) that might be causing unknown villi blunting as the Losartan did/was causing in my cause . . . causing my dairy allergy to flare back up.
****this is not medical advice only my experience after recognizing my BP medicine Losartan had caused Villi blunting issues leading to my dairy allergy.
I hope you find some of this information helpful and hang in there you can get better from a dairy allergy.
I have from changing my medicine to a non-blunting medicine.
