I am also casein intolerant. I take supplements. Green leafy veggies (except for spinach, which has a chemical that prevents absorption of calcium) are plentiful in calcium. The problem for me is that I'm going through TMJ treatment and none of my back teeth touch ... can't really chew leafy greens!!

The interesting thing is that milk is not as good as a calcium source as we think. Our country has one of the highest milk consumption rates, and one of the highest osteoporosis rates. My understanding is that protein depletes calcium. We tend to eat so much protein, including in milk, that it may contribute to our osteoporosis problem.

That's just from what I've read ... I'm certainly not an expert!

Dairy is definitely your culprate!! Stay away from milk for a couple of weeks and see what happens. And yes leafy, green veggies have tons of calcium. Try doing an internet search on calcium because there are a million other ways to get your daily calcium :)

I'm dairy intolerant - not just casein or lactose. Until I went soy-free, I drank a lot of fortified soymilk, which has great levels of calcium.

If you're concerned about your calcium consumption, take a calcium supplement AND try to eat lots of leafy dark greens.
