I have had celiac disease my whole life. I have this friend who has IBS and is lactose intolerant, and has random stomach aches and stuff pretty frequently. I know that IBS is a common misdiagnosis of Celiac, and so is lactose intolerance. Even more convincing is that she says her lactaid pills hardly ever work. Should I tell her to think about getting tested for celiac disease?

Thanks!

I think it would be a good idea for her to maybe get tested and to also lok at her diet for other food allergies.

If the lactaid pills don't work, then she may be intolerant to casein, the milk protein. People with casein intolerance have to avoid dairy just like gluten. She would have to read all labels. Casein is in a lot of things like most chocolate, chips, lactose free products, candy, baked goods, ect. I believe that I am casein intolerant, but I have never been tested.

It would also be a good idea to suggest to her to get bloodwork done for celiac disease since she does have some of the symptoms.
