I ate some cheese last night and was sick all night. It was kind of a test and boy did I pay. I'm wondering if anyone knows how long it takes to recover after this. Not fun.

We are all different in our reactions and how long they last. It depends a lot on where you are in your healing, your overall health, etc. You will find that each glutening is different for you too. Some lessons we learn the hard way.

Some will have symptoms for a few days, or weeks. I have had some last around 2-3 months because it knocks down the villi and my iron levels drop real fast.

Be sure to drink plenty of water and use probiotics to help break down your foods so you get as many nutrients as possible.

I hope you feel better fast!

I'm severely lactose intolerant and for me it's 22 hours. That's the amount of time from ingestion of dairy to its not so fun exit. Once it's gone my system is quickly back to normal and I hope yours is as well. For me it's not at all like being glutened. That's a long recovery process, which for me was 2-3 weeks.

If your problem from cheese is due to lactose intolerance try Swiss cheese as it is not supposed to have any lactose in it. Check the package it may say lactosefree or no lactose...if it doesn't say that then look at the sugar content and it should be 0 because lactose is a sugar.

I have been lactose intolerant all my life as well as my brother and some of my nephews. Depending on how much lactose was in what we ate determined how soon we would react with cramps and running to the bathroom with diarrhea. And if what we ate only had a small amount of lactose in it then we might not get cramps and diarrhea but just a lot of gas instead. You could do a internet search for lactose levels in foods and get a list. I don't remember them all right now but know Swiss cheese has none and butter has a small amount.

A few years ago the digestive disease doctor insisted on my having a lactose intolerance test because she wanted to be sure. They make you drink a big dose of lactose sugar and then measure your level of lactose intolerance. My level was extremely high and I spent the next 2 days being sick with abdominal cramps and in the bathroom. All they really did after the test was to give me some lactase enzyme pills and tell me to go buy some more of them.

I believe most hard cheeses are lactose free (or so i've heard).

I know hard cheeses and yogurt are sometimes recommended as being lower in lactose but lactose levels are also dependent on the processing and fat content.

So I suggested Swiss cheese either marked lactosefree or with 0 sugar content in case the lactose intolerance is severe...sort of as a baseline place to start for eating cheese if you are lactose intolerant. In actuality the lactose content of Swiss Cheese is considered as an insignificant amount...0.1 or less.

In my humble experience, any question which starts "How long..." does not have an answer. It takes as long as it takes for you, is all I can say.... Every body is unique and every response is unique and while it would be nice to have some guidelines, they reallly do not apply. Sorry about that. :)

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too.
