I know dairy products are making me sick. But, what's the difference between lactose intolerance and casein intolerance or sensitivity? How can you tell which is which? Thanks.

Lactose is milk sugar. Casein is milk protein. If you can use 'lactaid' supplements when you consume dairy to prevent symptoms, you probably just have lactose intolerance. (There's also 'lactaid' or lactose free milks and ice cream now.) If you try using lactaid, but STILL have symptoms after consuming dairy, you probably have casein intolerance (or even problems with whey which is also in dairy). I did the Enterolab package of tests which tests for milk as well as gluten sensitivity. My results said I react to cow's milk with antibodies (autoimmune reaction) just like I react to gluten. So I have gluten and casein intolerances.

Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

I HAVE READ SOMEWHERE THAT CASEIN WAS A COW PROTEIN, SO YOU DON'T FIND IT IN GOAT MILK. BUT YOU WILL FIND LACTOSE IN BOTH.

Casein is also in goat's milk, just smaller amounts. If you're casein intolerant, any amount may affect you. :o
