Dairy Reaction?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Two weeks ago I started in using butter trying to test and see if I could tolerate a little bit of dairy. I had just gotten back from a trip so I didn't connect starting the butter with some C difficulties I started having, and the patch of itchy, flaking skin that came back on my scalp. I wasn't feeling so great, but I attributed it to a couple of corn ingestion incidents.

Last night I gave havarti cheese a try, and had some serious repercussions. What I'm trying to figure out is if it's a lactose thing, or a casein thing. Within the first 30 minutes I got the typical digestion issues: rumbling stomach, gas, D. Then within the hour my hands joints starting aching really bad. By the time I went to bed all my joints were killing me. Next day the joints still hurt, and I have some acid reflux issues.

Does anyone else react like this to dairy? Would you consider it a lactose reaction or a casein allergy?

Thanks!

It sounds like casein to me. I've never read of lactose intolerance causing joint issues.

Try an aged cheese like cheddar which has very little lactose to see if you have the same response as you did to the Havarti. I can't have lactose, but I can have casein. Thank goodness! Couldn't do without my butter. :)

Hi, I'm new.

I have gluten intolerance and I have an allergy to dairy. My body serious reacts with milk, cheese,butter. When I eat cheese, I my lips start to sting, I get stomach ache and diarrhea throughout the night, and I start to itch all over. I've never been able to take dairy even as a baby. I remember my mom telling me that she felt sorry for me because when I was born they didn't have those options back then as they do now.

I can handle soy a little bit better than dairy. I just become gasy with soy but I prefer to drink almond milk if anything.

Do you have an epipen? You should be prepared in case you accidentally eat something that has dairy. My nut allergy has gotten worse with age and doc gave me an epipen even though I haven't needed it.... yet. Better to be safe than sorry.
