Question About Whey
0

5 posts in this topic

i believe that i am sensitive to foods with whey in them, however i just recently discovered that whey is a milk protien.(hey i'm new at this)

would this mean that i should avoid all dairy? i always recognized avoiding dairy as an intollerance to dairy products (which i already have) or as an allerty to caseins.

it would be very helpfull if someone could clear this up for me!

Im not sure if I understood your question totally, but from my understanding if you are allergic to Whey or Casein ( they are both derivitaves of dairy) than you should be avoiding all dairy products. That's my udnerstanding anyway.

As a side note, casein and whey are in a lot of things!!!...Most cookies, crackers, baked things....etc...

Here is what I have found, but if it is not correct, then someone please correct me.

There is a difference between lactose (milk sugar) intolerance and casein (milk protein) intolerance. I have never heard of being specifically intolerant to whey, but whey contains both lactose and casein, so an intolerance to either of the others would cause a reaction. Lactose intolerance is often temporary (and is very common with celiac disease in the early healing stages), so if that is your problem then you may not need to give up dairy forever. If it is casein you have a problem with, then you must give up ALL dairy. And Laura is right, read the labels, many foods contain milk derivatives in some form!

But many gluten-free companies recognize that many of us can't have dairy, and offer many gluten free/dairy free items as well. If it says casein free then it is dairy free.

God bless,

Mariann

Just to share another experience with dairy:

My girlfriend Andrea went on the gluten free diet about 7 months ago. That went well at first and she felt soooo much better than she ever has that we didnt really think much of her being sick sparatically maybe once a week or so.

Eventually we tied the sparatic sickness to dairy, and she has since also cut out soy. Since cutting out all things she has been fine (with the exception of a particularly horrible incident last night that we still aren't sure what the cause was).

My uncle who has an autistic-celiac son has explained to me that the proteins in gluten, caesine and soy are all VERY similar and that in many cases a celiacs body is so damaged from gluten that it looses the ability to distinguish between these proteins. From what I've read, celiacs that stay on the strict gluten-free, cf, sf diet for several years usually gain back the ability to properly digest caesine and soy.

My suggestion would be to try cutting out dairy, and maybe soy too, if you stop feeling sick then there ya go!

:)

    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis?
