  • Discovering a Food Intolerance to Casein, a Milk Protein
    whereas before I was very active and counting calories etc and gaining weight Sorry to write so much but I would hope that it could be useful for others Some symptoms of brain allergy include addictive behaviors like cravings for compulsive eating of food you re allergic to brain fog indecisiveness difficulty concentrating mood swings manic and polar anxiety irritability and way more There is a lot of information in this article http www wholeapproach com newsletter pop200304 html And this one is what helped me confirm brain allergy for both me and my daughter http www alternative doctor com allergydotcom brainallergy htm http www askdrsears com also has a lot of great information on food allergies As with your husband I ve noticed with my daughter that the longer she goes without eating something she s allergic to when one of her little friends slips her a snack when I m not looking her reactions get bigger and worse I d echo that our tastes have also changed Thanks again for posting this I think so many people have food intolerances and allergies that they are totally unaware of J Heath says May 17 2010 at 2 35 pm We ve recently discovered that two of my sons are probably casein intolerant I m eliminating dairy and implementing the GAPS protocol I ve heard it s very helpful for healing up a lot of these intolerances since so much depends on having a healthy gut and immune system http www gutandpsychologysydrome com Your comments about health and ADHD bipolar are right on Although probably not all allergies but gut problems from SAD Standard American Diet smallnotebook says May 25 2008 at 11 32 pm Hi Jenn Thanks so much for taking the time to write something that could be so helpful for others That is an amazing testimony you and your daughter have What you said reminds me of Doug s story of being hyperactive as a child He was on medication for a year and then his family changed his diet to remove food coloring and sugar I think It completely fixed everything It can be really tough to determine a food allergy Especially with kids since they can t communicate in words with you Even older kids often don t know that it s not normal to have your stomach hurt all the time or some other problem It would have taken me a long time to guess potatoes You are very blessed to have figured those foods out while your daughter was so young And with people having all kinds of different symptoms for allergies and intolerances well that s why I think the internet is great so we can share stories beyond the classic symptom list to help others Melanie says November 11 2008 at 11 32 pm Hi Jenn a random web search led me here Just wondering if you could tell me more about your husband s difficulty breathing when he had casein in his body I have been getting some strange symptoms over the years I am 25 used to get chest pains sometimes get tingly fingers my face feels hot every often but most of all i feel clogged up hard to breath like my diaphram is tied in aknot just cant get a full breath in some days and sort of breath alot No asthma or smokes and blood pressure is fine very tense muscles toooo Thankyou for any advice you can give Had too many tests one verything come up negative Melanie says November 11 2008 at 11 34 pm lots of typo s ooops i meant short of breath not sort and tests on everything not one very thing were negative smallnotebook says November 16 2008 at 9 19 pm Hi Melanie I showed your comment to my husband Doug and he nodded his head and said that s exactly what he used to feel like His symptoms started when he was about 33 I would suggest you do a trial to go without casein for two weeks and see if you feel better Just try it because it won t cost anything and there are no harmful side effects But you have to do it completely no cheating and read food ingredients carefully If it is due to a casein intolerance then those symptoms indicate your body is having an extreme sensitivity and will react to small doses of dairy and casein If you discover that you start feeling better without it then email me and I ll try to send you more resources for what can help Amy says March 12 2009 at 8 19 am Thank you so much for telling Dougs story I am 24 and have been sick for a year a half I am newly married and can t stand feeling sick all the time I had internal external ultrasounds stomach emptying tests cat scans gallbladder testing blood tests stomach scope found ulcers colonoscopy echo and many natural tests The only thing that I found out was that i had a casein intolerence 4 weeks before my wedding I tried a casein free diet but the only difference I noticed was that I had a little more energy Now in addition to my nausea and extreme exhaustion I get a burning headache after I eat and I am very irribable I am desperate for an answer I am on my 3rd day of a casein free diet again and reading Dougs story has helped to restore hope of feeling normal again Thanks John McClure says May 11 2009 at 3 45 pm Hi I developed severe itching problems in 2003 and two immunologists two allergists and four dermatologists couldn t solve it I stumbled across a website Enterolab com in Dallas who specialize in food intolerances using a stool sample and found gluten chicken egg and casein problems Changed my life Stool igA testing is much more sensitive than blood samples Good luck dappy says June 8 2009 at 9 21 pm John can you tell me more about Enterolab Since being diagnosed with celiac in late 2007 I have continued to experience chronic diarrhea even though I am completely gluten free all this time After reading your blurb I thought that there might be something to these tests that might help me as well Thank you April says September 7 2009 at 6 07 pm Dappy I m not sure if you are still active on this site but wanted to add an improtant comment regarding your chronic diarrhea Please see a gastroenterologist You may have one of the inflammable bowel diseases ulcerative colitis or Crohn s disease Chronic diarrhea is a classic symptom of both and can get terribly worse without medication Many people with UC and CD started with Celiac and visa versa sara says November 18 2009 at 9 04 pm I have two sons and a husband that I am sure have this The 2 yr old is watched closely with what he eats Others not so into this yet My youngest son also is allergic to MSG You might check that out also he would bang his head on the floor at early morning wakings wanting these foods When removed the headaches stopped mine have to now that we don t eat msg or milk Amanda says March 29 2009 at 9 12 pm A google search about casein intolerance led me here My doctor thinks I may have a casein or whey intolerance Hard cheese and milk seem to be my worst enimies Hard cheese however is lactose free about 99 9 So that pretty much ruled lactose intolerance out I ve had stabbing pains in my right lower abdomen been to the ER i don t know how many times and told it was an ovarian cyst Then my husband demanded an abdominal x ray be done and they found a very large intestional blockage which led us to believe its a food intolerance i agree the benefits of feeling and functioning properly keeps me away from dairy and out weighs my love of cheese I m realizing just how many foods are processed with these two additives and its slightly depressing This is a great post everyone s comments are very helpful what a gem to find on the internet Mary says June 10 2009 at 11 00 am Same experience here It s casein alright Consumption of hard cheese and milk use to put me in bed for days at a time until finally a 2 year long finally I realized casein was messing with my stomach and my head Doctors told me it was anxiety and to avoid caffeine and sugar I did so but felt even worse Have been better for over a year now tolerate coffee quite easily while studiously avoid casein in all forms Brian says April 7 2009 at 10 52 am Thanks After i was weaned over 55 years ago I was one sick kid apparently and would slough off my gut lining The country doctor thought I was allergic to wheat not a celiac milk and soy Gluten is another potentially poisonous protein ans are some of the soy proteins I outgrew it Meaning I no longer was deathly sick When various maladies have cropped up since my 30 s doctors pooh pooed the food intolerance hypothesis Of course gluten and casein free were nearly impossible in the 1950 s and only recently have become just moderately difficult Adding soy and corn will be fun I went gluten free in October big change in almost every aspect and I am off off two heart medications and half dose on the last But I am getting random bad responses that make me suspect that the soy casien and maybe corn are issues in and of themselves not beacuse of the gluten messsed up the gut I have some biochemistry and considerable life sciences background and find myself more an expert than my doctor I don t want to waste too much time on a food journal but want it to be effective How detailed do you need to get to make it worthwhile but not excessive Jen says June 4 2009 at 8 46 am I think this is the best description representation of a food intolerance I have read yet so thank you for sharing this I was recently diagnosed with a gluten intolerance and suspect that I have a casein intolerance as well and I am finding that it is very difficult for people to understand what an intolerance is An allergy that causes an immediate predictable response of swelling rashes etc makes sense but an intolerance that causes major symptoms right away sometimes mild symptoms hours later other times or can cause hidden terrible damage to one s inner organs over many years that is more difficult to grasp But stories like your husbands help people to understand And the more people hear stories like this the more quickly others will think to test for food intolerances as a cause of their symptoms And this is a good thing Marisa says July 27 2009 at 7 37 pm One extra note With my allergy it sometimes waited 12 30 hours before aweful symptoms started After the internal fighting fails the end result is the immune response you see way later But right some can present themselves right away others not till later after it builds up eough to explode It also depends on the severiy of the allegy ie my numbers are very high 0 35 absent undetectable 0 35 0 70 low level 0 71 3 50 moderate level 3 50 17 50 high level 17 6 50 00 very high above 50 00 very high mine was 17 0 very high could lead to anaphylaxis chest pain and or breathing ceases so how your symptoms presentand when depend on the severity and your own body Marisa says July 27 2009 at 7 25 pm I was born with a milk allergy and it was not discovered until I was 10 years old I would go into seizures and pass out upon waking up I would throw up aweful things things that should be evactauted via colon for lack of a better term Back then they still had immunotherapy via injection some allegist claim that never exsisted until I presented medical records of having the shots for three years I did great afterward I could eat dairy in moderation with no problem The problems would start if I over indulged Now after delivering my second child my allergy rapidly became worse again Last week I was tested for milk properties and the casein showed up very high for allergy An actual allergy which means your body is havin an immune system response to the invador and tries to flush it out or fight it Horrible stomach pains almost doubled over vomiting headache red eyes circles under the eyes etc An intolerance is something I ve only heard coupled with lactose because an intolerance is the body lacking the enzyme that properly breaks down the milk sugar lactose Is anyone sure they don t have an allergy and not an intolerance I m beside myself that they do not give injections for this anymore They worked wonders for me when I was young My main point is to share some other aspects like these symptoms tests done blood panel for allergy how pregnancy can trigger it to escalate and a little history of how allergists used to treat it I would love if someone could share a website or good list of foods that do not contain casein Alot list what to stay away from but are nill on the things you can have I ve heard some vegetables can contain this protien as well Definately a lifestyle change Hang in there to anyone who has this I know it s not fun I hope your husband finds it easier as time goes by I do remember learning from my childhood allergist that if you have the allergy that is the one food your body will crave unless you are totally casein free for two weeks body detoxifies and craving goes away Caroline says September 27 2009 at 9 12 pm He can still have vegan cheese so long as it hasn t been produced in a factory where milk was used on the machinery You have to look out for that in every food he eats though I ve had casein intolerance for 15 years now My diet is very limited but thankfully I currently live in an area where though I m not part of it myself there s an Adventist church on every other corner and they have their own market and so on They re really big on everything being milk egg free though sadly they re not always good at knowing what s in their foods they re big on using butter instead of shortening for instance It s still made it a TON easier for me to find foods I can eat by living around here It might be worth it for you guys to contact a local Seventh day Adventist church and ask to talk with someone who has the same problem Doug has Warning some of their food replacement ideas will be really dorky insult your taste buds But here and there you ll learn of a real gem that will make the whole process of fully transitioning to a milk free existence tons easier I actually found this link because I was hoping to learn more about caseinase which I ve heard if it existed anyway would help the way lactase lactaid helps with lactose intolerance But anywho just thought I d throw that out there I m planning on moving soon and it s really a scary thought because it won t be in an Adventist getto so it ll be harder to exist I ll have to subsist on salads and stir fry and the like That s not tons of fun when it s every day every meal Clinton says October 22 2009 at 8 02 pm Hi About three years ago a friend of mine had an epileptic seizure I got on the internet with the search terns epilepsy cure and came up with the usual jumble of garbage except for one a veterinary named John Symes from Georgia He relates that about twenty years ago dogs began dying off and being curious related the deaths to the fact that the Russians had flooded the market with wheat and the dogfood manufacturers seeing the monetary advantage substituted the wheat for the corn they had been using in the dogfood All dogs were not equally effected like people some were damaged more than others and some not at all The Irish Setter breed was almost made extinct He found that a similar problem existed with the casein in milk He believes that hat these substances do is coat the intestinal villi they comprise the lining of the intestine so that they are disabled and cannot absorb nutrients Without these nutrients the body is susceptible to a litany of problems generally listed as idiopathic cause unknown His site is dogtorj net By the way there have been no more seizures Clint Clinton says October 25 2009 at 11 50 am I would like to add to my previous post that I have found information that all casein may not be toxic only that from Holstein cows which provide most of the milk at the market mimi says December 23 2009 at 5 33 pm Someone mentioned to me a Rainbow Light product that is supposed to shield one from the ill effects of casein Does anybody here know about it or something similar Annette says March 4 2010 at 3 05 pm For the last 15 years I have had a lot of health problems Fibromyalgia chronic fatigue sinus problems eczema headaches IBS depression anxiety along with a slew of other issues I was on a handful of daily prescription medications and even considered trying to get disability My oldest son had been a very colicky baby with sleep problems and was experiencing severe learning disabilities in elementary school My youngest son had a lot of stomach problems and had developed severe migraines when we increased his milk to strengthen his bones since he was playing football When the migraines continued to the point where my son couldn t do anything without getting one we started seeing a Neurologist It was then that a possible food allergy could be the problem We tried an elmination diet with him and immediately linked his migraines with dairy Both kids needed to be on soy formula as babies so it wasn t too surprising that they could have a milk intolerance However what I didn t count on was that as soon as we gave up dairy as a family we all changed My son who had severe learning disabilities and sleep problems is now reading and sleeping at night He has normal social interactions now he had been very shy anxious and dazed most of the time My younger son used to have allergic shiners and now he has bright eyes no migraines and no daily stomach pain ALL my health problems have disappeared and I feel better than I have ever felt in my life Since discovering the casein intolerance I have spread the news on to other fibromyalia sufferers and every person who has given up dairy has recovered from the auto immune illness The hard part now is staying off the dairy We don t purposely ingest it but seem to get a lot of accidental dairy Restaurants hide it in their food and many manufacturers leave it off their labels I ve managed to substitute Silk for milk in all my cooking But I do cook all the time now in order to replicate the foods that we enjoyed eating out My son s birthday is next week and he had wanted a ornately decorated store bought cake but when he realized that he d get sick he decided to design his own healthy cake He s decided on a dairy free yellow cake dairy free chocolate icing with soy cream in the middle And he s more than happy about it because he was able to create the cake himself The ironic part of it all is that I come from a long line of dairy farmers on both my parents sides I had hoped to eventually be able to ingest cheese again but the longer I stay off the dairy the worse the intolerance becomes I suppose its a small price to pay for good health and a healthy kids now Sue says April 7 2010 at 8 36 am I had the fibromyalgia chronic fatigue IBS dermatitis depression anxiety and a bunch of other problems as well I was finally diagnosed with celiac my dad and grandmother also have it but also have eliminated lactose I had wondered about the casein and came across this site I think I m also allergic to some fruits and vegetables MSG and am going to have allergy tests done because I still feel sick The pain from the FMS is gone however and I lost 75lbs in 1 1 2 yrs after givng up gluten The weight would not come off before I had still been eating things with casein in them whey protein isolate and started experiencing the tightness in my chest and heartburn again and had been at a loss Katie says March 9 2010 at 3 35 pm Hey Not sure if your still checking this at all but thought I d give it a shot I m 24 and have known of my casein allergy for 8 years I m from Wisconsin were I grew up as cheese being my diet I was soooo heartbroken when I found out I could no longer eat it If you havn t already discovered Tofutti check it out They make non dairy no casein sour cream cream cheese cheese slices and delicious ice cream and ice cream sandwiches It was such a blessing when I discovered these I really missed pizza too have him try pizza without chese just double up on pepporoni or something it s not quite the same but it s better than nothing and pretty good too Good luck Rachel says March 10 2010 at 5 44 am Thanks for the recommendations Katie We think that pizza without cheese is good as long as there are lots of other toppings Paul says March 16 2010 at 6 40 pm I have a casein intolerance also I can t sleep if I eat any casein It is a very strong effect and at times I haven t been able to sleep for 3 days running after eating just a little dairy So of course I don t eat it anymore I see you are aware of celiac disease and how it affects the ability to digest day lactose intolerance There is also something called casein mediated enteropathy that can cause intestinal damage Anyhow I think anyone with lactose intolerance should get themselves checked for celiac disease It is more common than people seem to realize Sue says April 7 2010 at 8 39 am Yes celiac occurs in 1 in 133 people in the US and if you have a blood relative the chances are even more that you have it My grandmother and her sister had it and so do my dad and just finding out 2 of my 3 sisters also have it 97 of people that have it don t know they have it Kerry says March 26 2010 at 7 40 am I have been looking into casein allergy intolerance since I started rotating my daughters food and noticed she is having eczema flare ups after eating probiotic yogurt My daughter is 11 months old and has had eczema for 3 months From 5 weeks old she slept through the night for 12 hours but this stopped as soon as I started weaning her Three doctors and a dermatologist have refused to refer me to a dietician or an allergist so I am trying to determine myself what is affecting her I always ruled out a milk allergy as she is fed on milk based formula and didn t have any problems until weaning but I now believe the formula she is on contains whey and not casein I found a very interesting website http www plantpoisonsandrottenstuff info content elimination diet gluten casein aspx which I believe explains the reasons she is having bad flare ups after eating yogurt and not cheese I think this may be of interest to all the people on here with casein intolerance as it also implies there is a link with gluten intolerance I noticed the site mentions it is more common in red haired fair skinned people and both myself and my little girl are very fair with red hair Unfortunately I think she may be intolerent allergic to other things as I initially only weaned her on veg fruit and rice I have been diagnosed with IBS since she was born and have recently been itching a lot and having tingling pins and needles I have had shortness of breath and abdominal pain for years so I really think I should try leaving out casein and gluten too I m not sure what I should be giving my little girl now as I m worried I m not feeding her enough Kerry says March 26 2010 at 7 47 am Oh I have also been diagnosed with reflux oesophagitis and hiatus hernia since I was 18 now 32 which did not get better when I stopped drinking caffeine and alcohol stopped smoking cut down on fatty foods and took the medication they gave me Sue says April 7 2010 at 8 44 am I have peripheral neropathy the tingling and dermatits herptaformaris skin reaction to gluten if I eat gluten i start itching right away Since going gluten free the tingling is going away and so is the dermatitis You can get topical dapsone for the dermatitis If it is celiac it causes damage to the small intestine and you don t absorb nutrients and will be malnourished so continuing to eat gluten if celiac intolorant is like a double edged sword Also if I eat gluten i will be up for 2 to 3 nights and can t sleep J Heath says May 17 2010 at 2 45 pm I saw that article too Plan to try the gaps protocol www gaps com to heal up my son s tummy and then reintroduce raw dairy from a local farm at a later date It s one of the types recommended as easier to tolerate from Jersey cows We ve dealt with eczema constipation and clogged ears for 2 years now Kayla says March 31 2010 at 6 15 am I know this is an old post but I ve just found it I wonder if you have tried non cow dairy My husband has severe problems with any cow dairy because of the casein but doesn t have the same reactions to goat s sheep buffalo dairy products because he has no problem at all with lactose Just a thought J Heath says May 17 2010 at 2 48 pm Did you get an answer The link on Kerry s comment above talks about types of casein and which are supposed to be easier to tolerate Kathryn Smits says April 9 2010 at 8 03 pm Fascinating comments My casein intolerance was diagnosed 25 year ago at age 50 after what seems to have been a mild case of chronic fatigue syndrome or possibly undiagnosed glandular fever My wonderful GP whom I found after several doctors were no help at all took me off wheat and all dairy products My intolerance to wheat was temporary about 2 years as predicted the casein problem is here to stay It is not extreme I can tolerate traces in bread etc A couple of years ago my craving for cheese got the better of me and I convinced myself that I had outgrown the problem encouraged by the fact that for about a month I had no adverse reaction I did enjoy the cheese By the time the reaction hit me with severe sinus and chest problems and nightly hyperventilation I did not at once realize what the problem was and thought of a virus infection Once I woke up it took me a several weeks to come right Never again I have recently become sensitive to soy protein as well However I enjoy cooking and am quite used to a restricted diet of good basic fresh mostly organic food My friends too are happy to share it when I entertain Rice milk and rice protein are great Eating out is restricted but I can enjoy dairy free Indian food MATT says April 16 2010 at 8 33 pm HAVE HAD ACID REFLUX AND DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS FOR ABOUT SEVEN YEARS DOCTORS WANT TO PERSCRIBE PRILOSEC FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW I HAVE HAD JOINT PAIN AND TINGLING AND NUMBNESS IN HANDS COULD THIS BE CAUSED FROM CASEIN INTOLERANCE Doug says October 4 2010 at 8 30 pm I was prescribed acid reflux drugs as well they were almost useless some small relief perhaps but very little Start a food journal be patient and open minded Start with Casein and that is not just in milk it s in all kinds of stuff If it s food you will find it Bob says December 30 2011 at 4 49 pm Doug this is a fascinating read for me I have had severe chest pain for 9 years now I had huge gut issues and digestion problems Went gluten free and that helped HUGE but Im still having the chest pains and left arm pain and numb hands and feet with the palpitations and also short of breath Heart EKGs and stress tests show the heart is good So this is my next try I am going to go super clean eating casien and grain free I cant believe how much this has affected my life Man has it sucked Anyways Id love to email discuss this stuff with you a bit if you dont mind my e mail address is madmaxperformance hotmail com Kind regards sir Bob Larissa from Australia says May 30 2010 at 8 11 am I am so glad I found your blog I know this is an old post but your husband is the first person other that me that I ve heard of having a casein intolerance ever I have a permanent runny nose achey joints bones and occasional stomach problems I ve tried to give up a few times since I worked out I have it but it all tastes soooo good I can see some of the foods you prepare and learn Have you heard of others that have this I m keen to learn more Jacqui from Australia says August 6 2010 at 8 54 am Larissa if you are still on here I would love to hear from you and how you are finding what foods are the best to eat and what to stay away from Please email me on jacquiburge hotmail com emily says June 4 2010 at 5 38 am Hi My doctor told me I had 20 different intolerances for different foods about 4 years ago among them both milk and casein But I can eat cheddar cheese without my body reacting My doctor said that the protein casein in cheddar cheese is broken down due to the production process so that people with casein intolerance can eat it Have your husband tried cheddar cheese Rachel says August 6 2010 at 8 22 pm He has a problem with any kind of cheese and his sensitivity is severe enough that we don t want to test it further Jacqui from Australia says August 6 2010 at 8 52 am Wow this has been an interesting forum to read I have just been told by my doctor today that I most likely have a casein intolerance I also have IBS what I thought might be hay fever migraines and I get anxious and restless and slight depression I stayed off dairy for 2 1 2 weeks and tried dairy again and was quite sick I have noticed I feel soooooo much better off dairy but I LOVE yoghurt and cheese I am currently working on a remote island so it is very hard to get special foods Soon I will be returning to civilisation My doctor told me about milk called A2 which I should be able to drink but I can t get that here Anyway thank you heaps for all the ideas My mum suffers from fibromyalgia and migraines so I have advised her of this site Keep the info and stories coming please Chris Nova says October 13 2010 at 9 20 am now you think youve got it all figured out but let me blow your mind to another level mr mrs im casein intolerant digestion of certain foods require the production of certain enzymes by the pancreas And guess what the pancreas needs certain elements to create those enzymes some it can synthesize on its own and some it needs from external sources some of those external elements are metals minerals and some of them are called amino acids now u think that it is that your husband was just casein intolerant but having had the problem myself and had it affect me and now 4 years later im completely cured of this so called casein intolerance the reason i was mineral deficient and amino acid deficient i wasnt getting what i needed in my diet for a prolonged period of time which made me develop the sensitivity or inability to properly digest and assimilate certain foods And I believe that anyone that is truly worried about food sensitivities should learn alot about trace minerals and amino acids especially the essential amino acids its funny because casein contains alot of the essential amino acids but just like a car that has a broken wheel u cant drive that car to the shop now can you the real problem is probably magnesium deficiency or zinc deficiency those are much more liekly then a casein intolerance in scientific fact Chris Nova says October 13 2010 at 9 26 am to reiterate THER IS NO SUCH THING AS CASEIN INTOLERANCE I KNOW BECAUSE I THOUGHT I HAD IT AND AVOIDED MILK FOR YEARS BECAUSE IT PUT ME INTO GASTRIC PAIN AND I FELT ILL WHEN I HAD IT THAT IS NOT THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM THO THE REAL PROBLEM WAS I WASNT HEALTHY I WASNT GETTING ENOUGH VITAMINS MINERALS AND NUTRIENTS TO SUPPORT HEALTHY DIGESTION Our water is treated in north america if u look at any mineral water from any natural spring it has certain elements in it NATURALLY these elements being missing from the water is the number one cause of these problems i believe theres no calcium in the water theres no magnesium in the water like there is in MINERAL WATER all water should be MINERAL WATER we need these minerals HENCE THE WORD VITAMIN ie vital MINERALS again people wake up there is no such thing as casein intolerance its a protein in milk just like u need a hammer to put a nail in u cant digest certain things without equiping y our body with the right
