So, I was 100% convinced that I was gluten intolerant. 100%. But, I just got a lab report that says I am exhibiting an immune response to Casein (alpha & beta), casomorphin, teff (!), and possibly (although less clearly) also to whey protein and yeast. However, I am in NORMAL RANGE for Polish wheat, barley, spelt, and rye!
I'm stunned. However, since I started Paleo about 5 months ago, I have not had even one crumb of gluten stuff (I've been so scared of it), but the couple of times I've had dairy ended up badly (achy joints, sadness, tiredness). So, I guess I need to do a gluten challenge to see what's up.
Are any of you intolerant to casein but not gluten?
I guess I've been operating under the impression that dairy intolerance is usually piggybacked onto gluten intolerance. IOW, that the damage from gluten has allowed the dairy to cause a problem. In fact, I've seen many posts here where people describe how they were able to tolerate dairy after they healed their gut from gluten damage. What the hell?! Why am I intolerant to casein? AAAAGHGHGH! I love dairy, and I was really hoping someday to reintroduce it, at least somewhat.
