Definitely Casein Intolerant....

4 posts in this topic

Okay, since I have been sugar/dairy/caffeine free, my symptoms have diminished, except for the diarrhea, but with the Immodium, that at least has slowed somewhat.....

Today, I munched a bit on some Doritos Ranch Flavour - deliberately, it has sodium caseinate and milk ingredients in it.... Sure enough, 1/2 hour after eating some, the old burning, pain, gas came back...... I definitely think it is casein now..... the only other possibility is lactose, but I am leaning toward casein....

Buy some Lactid Milk, or whatever it's called. Hrrmm.. you can buy it at stores, and it's basically Milk, but they remove the lactose or something. Have a nice big glass, and if later you feel like dying.. then it is the casein!

Err.. some bad humor in that. But I reacted exactly the same to that stuff, if it had been a normal glass of milk. That was before I knew something called casein existed, lol.

But if there were milk ingredients.. could have been some lactose too? In my non-expert opinion, I'd say get the enterolab milk testing, try Lactid, or just aviod all milk products forever.

If you think it's the casein though, and don't feel like any more testing, then go with avioding milk products. I don't know of anyway of getting around a casein intolerance.

Hope this helped! =)

I had a totallyGf dinner last night and still had an upset stomach. I noticed though, that there were several dairy products. I think I will try a lactose free diet for a while and see what happens.

Hey Rian: You can determine whether you have problems with lactose (milk sugar) or other dairy ingredients (like casein, milk protein, or whey) by using 'lactaid' supplements (chewable tablets) when you consume dairy or drinking 'lactaid' or 'Dairyease' milk. If you STILL have problems even after using lactaid, you're probably sensitive to other dairy ingredients and will have to avoid all dairy to prevent uncomfortable symptoms. :o
