Lactose And Casein ...

Any advice or links would be greatly appreciated

Casein is a milk protein.
Lactaid helps replace the enzyme you'd be lacking to digest lactose.
Casein is a part of milk, and so far they don't make a pill/workaround.
Yes, if you only have a problem with lactose (and lactaid helps) you can take a pill and eat dairy products.
If its casein you have to avoid milk products.
If you are newly gluten-free, the milk problem may or may not be permanent. Sometimes, after the villi repair themselves, you can process milk again.
I'm sure I got something wrong in that explanation....
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).
Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

The beta-casein family constitutes up to 45% of the casein of bovine milk and is quite complex. In addition to A1 and A2, a number of related, but rarer, sub variants have been published to date including A3, B, C, D, E, F, G, H1, H2 and I. There may also be other types that have not yet been discovered/reported." Most people do NOT have reactions to A2 caseins; however the allergen test is for A1, that which is found to be in all commercial dairies. Only a few small dairies are producing A2 milk.

Lactose intolerance supposedly causes more stomach problems (cramping/bloating/diarrhea/etc), and some people can handle goat/sheep's milk (which has less or a different kind of lactose?)
Something like that
I drink almond milk, since soy also bothers me. I've been avoiding dairy for almost 6 months now, and have generally been feeling better.
Try some lactose-free stuff and see if it makes a difference. If not, go dairy free.

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice
- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.
