    Hey Wil, as the mom to a T1 with confirmed Celiac disease, I would recommend trying to add the dairy back in first instead of the wheat. Gluten in wheat destroys the cilia in the intestine. Dairy proteins are broken down in the cilia. When you stop eating wheat, the cilia come back and many people can tolerate milk and cheese again. Give yourself at least six months of being totally gluten free for the cilia to recover. Being “mostly” gluten free is like being mostly a virgin. Hey, if you’re doin’ it, you ain’t!

    A caution about giving up dairy: if you give it up for a month or longer, you are likely to lose your production of lactase, and then you definitely WON’T be able to drink it, whether you were lactose intolerant to begin with or not.

    So it seems to me to be a far better plan to give up the gluten first, and give it a good try, as the previous poster suggested. If the symptoms improve, you are basically home free, and don’t have to give up the dairy.

    I once gave up dairy, on the suggestion from someone that it was the cause of my allergies. Well, it made no difference at all. So, being on the stupid side of the spectrum, I started drinking milk again for lunch at noon, and every single day, I’d have severe cramps and diarrhea at 5 PM. Not making the connection, I just kept drinking the milk, and eventually (months) recovered my lactose tolerance, but I wouldn’t wish that misery on anyone, and I doubt very many would have the push-it-through stupidity that I did, LOL!

    Austin, In Venice, CA anyone with cash can get a medical marijuana card. There are plenty of “reasons” that enable you to get medical pot… Chronic back pain being one. I think Wil is anti-mary jane, and I respect that. But if you want it dude, go get it. Don’t waste your time asking Wil how to do it. Be pro-active. It’s God’s gift.
