Dizziness With Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The Dr has finally convinced me I have Celiac with a positive transglutimase and not one of the false positives. After a month, I am finally feeling better. I had what I believe was a terrible gluten withdrawal. The primary issue now is a weird kind of dizziness after either regular milk or lactose free milk. This can be raw or cooked. Strangely, I seem OK on cheese. I never had a problem before going gluten free. My appetite is returning and hopefully my energy level will too. My question is, is this milk thing temporary and why does lactose free milk still make me dizzy? Also wish me luck, we are driving to disneyland in 2 weeks and this whole gluten free thing is new. We have a kitchen and my bread maker is coming with me!

Lactose intolerance is extremely common in newly diagnosed celiacs--the villi that your autoimmune reaction was destroying are the same villi that produce the enzyme that breaks up lactose. There are different degrees of lactose intolerance so some people can do cheese and other things, while some can't.

About the lactose free milk--my partner's brother (who is not celiac) is extremely lactose intolerant and even the "lactose-free" milk gives him problems sometimes.

Also, the problem could be the casein and not the lactose. Casein (someone do correct me if I'm wrong) would still be in the lactose-free milk. Now, that wouldn't really explain the cheese, but maybe someone knows more about that than I do.

I might be a rare case but I ended up developing a milk allergy after going gluten free. Actually I think I have always had a mild milk allergy (my mom had to take me off dairy as a toddler) but it just became more pronounced once I went gluten-free. Dizziness doesn't sound like a lactose intolerance unless you mean you get sick to your stomach and that makes it seem like you are dizzy...Anyway my allergy symtpoms involved difficulty breathing and mild light-headedness at first and then eventually got worse to the point of my tongue swelling up. Not trying to scare you but do keep an eye on it. I was also able to tolerate cheese better than milk (even lactaid milk). You might also test to see if you have the same problem with goat milk or sheeps milk if you can get those in your area. For a while I could have goat milk/goat cheese with no symptoms. Another thing to test is whether you have the same problem with organic milk or raw milk.

I feel the same. I am not officially diagnosed with Celiac and probably never will...

I get those reactions with gluten, milk and eggs! My doctor won't believe mig...but in my opinion she doesn't know anything about Celiac other than what they learned 30 years ago.

Whenever I ingest milk I get dizzy and feel like everything is kind of unreal. Really strange and at first I think I was going mad. The same happens with eggs. When it

Thanks, it is always nice not to know one is alone and crazy :D . Do you have problems with cheese? I did a search on the forum, there was one woman who had the same symptoms 5 years ago. How long have you had this and how long have you been gluten free? I am hoping it is temporary. You described the milk feeling perfectly

Hi, I have an allergy to cow's milk and even after strictly avoiding all cow's milk and butter for at least ten years still tested positive and react. Like the other person I could tolerate goat's milk for a while but had to stop eating it. I can tolerate small amounts of sheeps milk yogurt so have some every once in a while. For some people with milk allergy using the yogurt recepie for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet digests enough of the casein so they can tolerate it. A lactose intolerace means that a person isn't making enough of this enzyme to digest lactose, tho many asians and native americans just don't make the enzyme lactase at all. Some celiacs do recover the ability to produce lactase but may not especially if they are older.

hard cheeses are naturally lactose free.

Try going on almond milk or something similar for a while.

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
