I'm thinking I have a dairy issue now and I'm trying to sort it out. Can anyone tell me if lactose fee and casein free are the same thing? If they are not, what is the differences. If I'm lactose intolerant can I still have products with casein or the other way around? I'm so tired of feeling icky and when I went gluten free I started feeling ALOT better but there is still something going on and I suspect milk products have something to do with it...

Any advice or links would be greatly appreciated :)

Lactose is a milk sugar.

Casein is a milk protein.

Lactaid helps replace the enzyme you'd be lacking to digest lactose.

Casein is a part of milk, and so far they don't make a pill/workaround.

Yes, if you only have a problem with lactose (and lactaid helps) you can take a pill and eat dairy products.

If its casein you have to avoid milk products.

If you are newly gluten-free, the milk problem may or may not be permanent. Sometimes, after the villi repair themselves, you can process milk again.

I'm sure I got something wrong in that explanation....

I has actually been found that while there are several different proteins in cow milk (casein) the one that MOST are allergic to are the beta casein, which it appears are newly formed and the inbreeding of dairy cattle seems to have mutated the A2 beta casein "Beta-casein is a naturally produced protein in cows

I am extemely lactose intolerant and have been since the age of 18 (I'm 53 now). I just switched to Soy Vanilla and it's wonderful. I can have a small amount of shredded Mozzarella and I do well with cream cheese as well. Experiment and see what you can handle and check out all soy cheeses and products and substitute as much as possible. I always say, "cow's milk is for baby cows."

I have the same problem. What about whey protein? Is it as common to have a reaction to whey as casein?

I'm also trying to figure out, still, if I'm intolerant to lactose or to casein (leaning toward casein). When I eat milk products (unfortunately, including goat and sheep, though not as bad as cow) I get similar symptoms to glutening, but more of a brain-fog rather than stomach issues.

Lactose intolerance supposedly causes more stomach problems (cramping/bloating/diarrhea/etc), and some people can handle goat/sheep's milk (which has less or a different kind of lactose?)

Something like that

I drink almond milk, since soy also bothers me. I've been avoiding dairy for almost 6 months now, and have generally been feeling better.

Try some lactose-free stuff and see if it makes a difference. If not, go dairy free.

Most hard cheeses are lactose free because the cheese making process eliminates the lactose sugar. The soft cheese are not nessecarily lactose free though.. Things like cheese balls or Velveeta often have lactose.

    • Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've been gluten free for just over a year and have been pretty good about staying away from processed foods and bread substitutes. I was just really jonesing for my grandma's banana pudding. Zanthan gum, soy and corn don't bother. So Googling the other two things I ate around the same time I only came up with one tiny web hit pointing to the fig of all things but I'm doubtful. It was an article about foods high in FODMAPs (whatever those are) which included figs and prunes. It suggests they trigger gastrointestinal symptoms. Well yeah! But I eat prunes all the time so I feel like I'm just reaching. Adding this to my food log but I may take a chance and try another piece of cookie one more time in another day or so and cross my fingers before ruling them out completely. I don't believe any company is perfectly infallible even if they do have a great reputation. I'm still super sensitive and have been occasionally triggered by other products that others seem to have no problem with. 
    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
