Need Some Advice.... Lactose Intolerance And Now Egg Intolerance
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

this is my first post and I just wanted to get some advice.

Heres my story, when I was about 4 or 5 I became allergic to peanuts. So ive grown up always being concious of what I eat.

Then when I was 23 I became Lactose intolerant. Now, at the age of 31 I think Ive become egg intolerant.

I dont notice any problems when eating gluten or wheat, but after searching online I came across information suggesting that celiac disease can appear as lactose intolerance first., Im wondering if Ive had it all along and it caused the lactose intolerance and now the egg intolerance.... does that sound plausible?

Could anyone offer any advice... Im incredibly sad about the prospect of having to avoid foods with peanuts, diary, egg and wheat for the rest of my life.

I had food allergies as a young child, but grew out of them. Jump ahead about 40 yrs and I become lactose-intolerant. That goes about the same for 15 yrs and SUDDENLY I have all kinds of issues. After a couple of years of trying doctors and simply writing everything that goes in my mouth down in a journal, I find I am gluten-intolerant, the lactose-intolerant has jumped in severity 700%, egg-intolerant, nut-intolerant, rice-intolerant and bean-intolerant. I had never read that lactose-intolerance is masked gluten-intolerance, but I have read that a large percentage of gluten-intolerant, or Celiac, are also lactose-intolerant. I have discovered it runs in my father's side of the family and nobody knew what the problem was. I have also read that those gluten-intolerant are often bothered by a myriad of other things.

Hi,

thanks for replying.

Yeah, I read that continued exposured to glutent and the allergic reaction caused by it causes damange to the villi in the intestines, which disables the ability to deal with lactose.

I guess Im just wondering, because Ive had lactose intolerance so long, and never (even now) had a prob with gluten... but the egg thing is making me wonder.

I was lactose intolerant for 15 years before I figured out I was gluten intolerant (as well as corn, and becoming intolerant of many other things). By that time I also had psoriatic arthritis and multiple nutritional deficiencies. I think it would be a good idea to get yourself tested with a celiac panel and perhaps head these stallions off at the pass (antibodies at the gut). It may come back negative, but even if it did I think it would be worthwhile to eliminate those things for six months (and check for and correct any nutritional deficiencies). You can then challenge the foods one at a time and gauge your response. After not consuming things for a while we often have a more marked response or, if your gut has healed, you may be able to handle them again. There are many silent celiacs with no GI symptoms.

Saw the doc today and he was quite good, blood tests tomorrow. He said that celiac rarely presented itself as lactose intolerance and egg intolerance before gluten intolerannce, but the tests would show more.

Kinda depressed about the possibility of facing a life with no diary, no nuts, no gluten and no egg.... at least i can still have steak and chips!

    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?  
    • So I have started my daughter on a magnesium citrate supplement.  I also took a does the first night so I have an idea of its effects.  (background info: about a month ago she started asking for tums about once a week close to bedtime for acid reflux)   So the first night I noticed that it really bothered my stomach in the sense that it felt like I had a lot of stomach acid as a result.  I had no heartburn etc. but a definite feeling of "burning" in my stomach.  We both took it right before bed.  The next day she reported the same feeling - that it "upset" her stomach.   I cut the dose in half and also gave it to her earlier in the evening.  But tonight she reported "heartburn" after drinking it.   Is this an indicator of low stomach acid?  I realize that she should NOT be taking a Tums if that is the case but I can't tease out from what I am reading if this heartburn is an indicator of LOW stomach acid or LOTS of stomach acid.  Any thoughts?
    • Thanks Ennis_TX! That's what I was hoping to hear I've never been a big protein powder user even pre-diagnosis despite being a fairly high level endurance athlete, so my awareness of what's out there is low. I've always preferred "real food," however, I was trying to find a protein powder because I have some extended job-related travel coming up, and wanted a shelf-stable, safe protein source. I like that this one only has no flavouring agents/nutritional additives and sunflower seeds are an inherently nutritious real food.  The price for this powder is actually pretty good in my area as the company is based in Vancouver/Bellingham, which is where I live. I don't much care if the taste or texture is horrible as long as it doesn't make me sick!  Just wanted to make sure that this was the case. Thanks for the hemp protein suggestion as well.
    • You're right, RMJ!  Food additives are definitely my reason for eating whole foods! Lol I'm allergic to Sulfites used as preservatives or antimicrobial agents in foods.  Long ago, Sulfites used to be added to meats to keep them pink and fresh looking, but that practice was banned.  However, those little moisture absorbing pads under some cuts of meat are allowed to contain Sulfites.  I found that I reacted to meats packaged that way.   Ennis, I wonder if that could be a possible reason for your reaction to meat.  Have you had Lyme disease?  Some people who've been bitten by infected ticks develop an allergic reaction to meat.   Curious Kitty
