Changing Symptoms? in Parents, Friends and Loved Ones of Celiacs Posted July 21, 2015 · Report to Admin Have you noticed any link to dairy consumption with the symptoms? I was very slow to go dairy free but after I had switched gastro doctors and he said sorry there is nothing more I can do than what you are doing and the meds you are using and then said a lot of times dairy is a problem for people with Celiac. I tried dairy free and have had good results. Not that I don't have other issues from time to time because I have IBS as well but certainly improvement has taken place. I wouldn't do anything too drastic right away because it takes me longer than a month to feel right after even a drop of gluten accidentally or cross contamination. Good luck. It's a journey and people on this site can provide assistance better than most doctors. Yes I'm jaded, it took the doctors way too long to find Celiac and they didn]t find it till I told them to check for it.
