Dairy Coma-Is it Real

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 16, 2011 at 10:55 PM

In the past I've gone comatose after eating ice cream. Always thought it was the sugar...today had cheese, unsweetened. Fage yogurt & cream. Lights out. Is it the dairy? Thought I could "never" give it up. This may be my reason besides it's not Paleolithic...

Coma in that I cannot help but fall asleep. Can't stay awake for anything. A little scarey, but sure does prove that it's the cream and not the sugar (in ice cream) that knocks me out!!! I'm done with it.

I poured nearly 1/2gal. of amazing, thick, awful... cream down the drain today. I just had to. It will be a challenge, but gotta be done. Thanks for the comments! I'm working my way to Paleo...

The sugar in (good) yogurt is misleading. While it is listed, nearly 1/2 of it is consumed by the bacteria. I don't have the exact ratio, I did look up the research a year or two ago. That is ONLY for the unsweetened yogurts. You might find it by searching "yogurt, sugar, bacteria"... not sure. But, 227g have about 9g listed sugars, and the research said "actual" was 4-5g. Thanks for the help!

Yup, this definitely happens to me. I presume this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casomorphin is to blame.

+1 and Thumbs up to the Dogtor J site! As difficult as his site is to read, there are some interesting tidbits. I've had a number of discussions with vets concerning the line between genius and insanity, regarding Dr. J ;)

I didn't believe it until going on a cheese binge and experiencing a high the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee. I was buzzing for a good 2-3 hours, then crashed.

No more cheese for me. Once an addict, always an addict.

By just looking up the calorie count information(because I do not have Fage yogurt at home) I can see even the kind with fat and no flavorings added has sugar in it. Presuming no sugar is added in making yogurt (otherwise it would be listed in the ingredients), this sugar could be residual lactose (anything ending in -ose is sugar, not trying to be condescending if you know that already, just trying to be thorough). Sugars cause blood sugar crashes, and I imagine lactose is no exception. That is the only explanation I can come up with and I hope it's helpful.
