Ugh ... This Time It Was Milk That Got Me

I haven't been around here for a while because I've been feeling SO much better after completely cutting out gluten. So yesterday I got overly optimistic. I've been eating yogurt with no problem (but no other dairy), and I thought I would try some goat milk (which is supposed to be easier to digest - maybe that's a myth) and see if I tolerated it. I did NOT. 36 hours later I still feel really really miserable, though at least the diarrhea has stopped. My glutening symptoms are more neurological although there is some GI stuff too. I just can't believe how much my stomach hurts right now.

Somebody tell me how to make it better. :(

Wow! I go to my Digestive Doc next week and besides the Celiac I gotta ask him about the Dairy too. I'm on 2nd day of stomach pain and diarrhea. This is horrible. I hope the best for you.

Thanks. I don't know if it's the casein or the lactose. I hope you figure out what's going on with you.

Hi! Have you ever tried coconut milk? I think it's really delicious, and it's opaque white so it really looks like milk. The taste is very mild, and doesn't taste like coconut at all. My favorite brand is "So Delicious" (original flavor). Makes great smoothies too. It probably works great in recipes too, but I haven't had a chance to try that yet.

I sometimes make smoothies with straight coconut milk with no additives. Doesn't "So Delicious" have additives in it?

It tastes great in desserts (especially with vanilla). It is also delicious in chowder. I reduced it on the stovetop and then add it last to simmer.

HI,

If you have a reaction to eating hard cheese like cheddar it is probably a casein issue. Most of the lactose is gone in hard cheeses. You can always take a couple lactaid pills when you eat the cheese just to be sure it is not lactose sugar. The lactaid digests the lactose, so if there was any trace of lactose left that would get rid of it. So you would be left with a chunk of casein to digest. You might need to do this test for 3 to 5 days in a row to see a solid reaction. This of course won't worlk if you are eating any other dairy during the time. Other dairy would muddy the waters and invalidate the test. Make sure the lactaid pills are gluten-free first though. It's an easy-peasy test really.

Any "additives" in "So Delicious" are vegetable or mineral based, natural and gluten free. They are all on the safe list on this site. I don't think there are any problems with it. Anyone have any other ideas about the different coconut milks? Do the additives make it no longer a whole food, and instead a processed food? Very curious about this. I'm interested in the digestibility of it for one thing. Bought some straight coconut milk in a can from Trader Joe's but haven't tried it yet. Hope it tastes as good.

Additive free coconut milk in a can does taste just as good as the ones with additives! I didn't even know Trader Joe's carried the canned type. It's even thicker and creamier too which makes it great used straight in recipes in place of cream, I imagine, or with water added for drinking. You learn something new every day!

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
