Gluten And Caesin Intolerant

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I went to Dr. Stephanie Cave (alternative med) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana about 2 yrs ago. My results showed that I am intolerant to gluten and caesin. Life was pretty hectic and I did nothing about my new findings. I would love to learn how to get on this diet. I know it sounds like gloom and doom, but, honestly, if this lifts the anxiety/depression/adhd at all, I am game. Scared to get my hopes up and miserable at the same time. I'm choosing to try. Anyone? Ty, Robin

More info:

I have, but, not all of the time, IBS and Acid Reflux. I've tried every med for anxiety and depression, each makes me feel worse or does nothing at all. I just feel jittery and uneasy, never quite satisified, moody, I get irritated easily. After being diagnosed wrongly for a few years, my sister was finally correctly diagnosed with Crohns. I want to feel better so badly. Anyone here from Louisiana? Any feedback would make me feel better. I'll at least know someone has heard me, ty, Robin

My way of getting a handle on my diet is to stick to chicken/turkey, beef, vegetables including potatoes, nuts, eggs, goat cheese and little else. It's a bit like Atkins but including potatoes, and without the heavy fats/dairy. Or like South Beach without the dairy. I'd suggest you read both those diet books for ideas. Generally I have eggs for breakfast, chicken or beef and side dishes for lunch and dinner. Snacks are a banana, nuts, maybe a Larabar.

My doctors suggest I avoid any grains at all, including rices and pseudograins, soy, sugars, dairy, pork... So I eat very few things - but it's still a guessing game at times. Today I tried a goat milk yogurt, and I think the sugars got me. I'm blown up like a balloon. However, I rarely ever get the IBS cramps and nastiness I had before I went gluten free.

I was on antidepressants for awhile, but I don't think they helped. I went off cold turkey, which was a BIG mistake, messed up my brain chemistry and I was wonked out for a couple months.

hth somehow? Lori

I had been dx'd as allergic to dairy and wheat from a diet test as an infant, but only off them for a few months. I went gluten and casien free in November, and i've been amazed at the difference. Within a week, 90% of my intestinal symptoms were gone. About 6 weeks in to it, I realized i hadnt taken exedrin in a month, and it used to be 3-4 times each week. My depression and anxiety started to ease about 2 months in to the diet.

So expect great things . . but be patient. There are worse things . . . i'm now on a diet so restrictive I can only eat 25 foods . . so you surely can do this! You can even find vegan chocolate if you look hard!

Good luck

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
