Gaunt Face/normal Weight in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted June 17, 2014 · Report to Admin Having problems with dairy is a perfectly normal thing to happen when you're just starting out on the gluten-free lifestyle. After I was diagnosed, and every time I've gotten accidentally glutened, I have had to cut out dairy because I was having trouble processing it as well. There's actually a scientific reason why, too! As you know, gluten kills your stomach's villi, causing malabsorption and a host of other issues. Because villi produce lactase (the enzyme that helps you process lactose), you may have trouble with dairy until you're fully healed. I'd suggest talking to your doctor if you can, and possibly cutting dairy out for a month or so. You may find that, when you ease yourself back into it, you'll have fewer problems. Also, "nervous stomach" is an actual thing, and some of the symptions are acid reflux and IBS. That might be what you're experiencing.
