... the "how fast can I get to a loo when out in public" thingy, because yeah, I thought I, too was done with that malarkey I endured for 40+ years and so...

gee, and I am whining because the same has lasted for about 6 months for me! :(

Adelaide, any chance it may not be milk, or cheese per se, but some additive they sneak into the cheese? That did happen to me, causing severe D and blistery rash.

The cheese is simply listed as having cream, cultures, enzymes and salt. Exactly what it takes to make cheese.

My problem is most assuredly not A1 casein. I drank like a quart of milk and feel pretty much fine. I think I'm just going to attempt to shrug it off at this point and try to fit more pieces if/when I get that sick again. Until then it will remain a mystery and I will try to forget it ever happened so it doesn't eat away at me.

I hear you. Sometimes, even after I wrack my brain trying to figure out what made me feel yucky (when I had been enjoying a

decent stretch of "peace in the land"), I just give it up, too.

This healing road is so up and down and sometimes, I think it's just a wonky day for the old GI tract.

It is frustrating for sure, but not worth making ourselves nuts.

(or any more nutty than we already are....) :D

Strongly suggest you get onto A2 milk only asap, cheese is only concentrated Milk, you can have a mild problem with milk and a much larger problem with Cheese and milk chocolate. Nothing to do with lactose sugar imho, just the A1 milk protein. Yoghurt is the go because the bacteria eat the lactose before you eat it anyway and you really don't want to eat much sugar with a dodgy gut. I originally thought all milk problems were lactose related but after getting more and more unwell on vintage cheese which has no lactose I've seen that theory is just not true.

Thanks for the tip, and maybe I wasn't totally clear on this with all of my comments on testing and trying to expand my diet. I have completely given up trying to expand my diet. I have for over two months now been on raw milk which I didn't know then, but understand now is A2. It has been for that entire time, until "the incident" been the exclusive source of milk for me. I do not eat milk chocolate as that crap is horrid and nasty, milk has no place in chocolate. I am quite a chocolate snob as a matter of fact. I even made my own peppermint bark out of rather pricey chocolate. It is oh so good!

After drinking milk, eating cheese and going through various type of pain for no apparent reason for that cheese "product" thing I tried I have determined that I in no way have any sort of issue at all with milk. Not lactose, not casein. I will continue with my raw milk though because it is not iodine contaminated and I can also buy cheese made from it. I find that the milk you can buy in the store tastes like crap and frankly if I have to pay almost three times as much for my milk, then so be it. At least it won't give me a rash or suck.

That's great you have a source of raw A2 milk, I have a friend with a A2 cow, I should probably be asking her for some milk too. I work at a dairy farm occasionally also who mostly have A1 cows but also some Jersy cows which are mostly A2 so I have a contact there, I could in theory get my own pure A2 cow one day :0 could just have it in the heard and milk it separately into a container.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful.
