Detecting A Casein Problem....
Posted 30 April 2012 - 07:50 PM
Trying to determine if it is casein itself that is the problem, or hormones in dairy that I am sensitive to.
My antibody levels to gluten are now 0. I still have some floaty stools though, and some that are mucousy. (Sorry for the TMI

Or does it just take awhile for them to build up after going gluten-free? I guess I am wondering if I need to be casein free for reasons other than vanity. Perhaps that would motivate me!

I know how hard it is because I'm testing casein-free right now. I highly recommend Earth Balance for butter substitute. Chocolate is hard if you're super sensitive. I think people eat the Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips and chocolate bars.
Edit: I just saw your second post. I think it makes a LOT of sense to go strict casein free for a few months and see if it helps the malabsorption. If it gives you acne, who knows what else it is doing? Also being a sugar fiend can keep your gut bacteria out of whack. Might want to try to moderate it a little.

So...icky question...but...is it normal for SOME stools to float? I mean, I'm talking 2-3 little floaters and several sinkers in every bowel movement. And I go about 5 times a day. (Which seems kind of excessive)

Hmmmm. Ok. Guess I better go hunting for some dairy free goodies today so I can stick to this. Probably what needs to be done to get over that last little hump....
As you like chocolate so much, try cocoa-powder with coconut milk.
