Dairy Allergy

Monday, November 28, 2016

In September I was diagnosed with an allergy to the proteins casein and whey that are in cow's milk. MILK is in everything. The obvious things are yogurt, cheese, sour cream, milk, butter and cottage cheese. All my favorites. It is also in some cereals, bars, soup etc. I have learned to read labels.

It's difficult and I am still grieving the loss of cheese.

    I just got back to my page to see your responses. It's a true allergy is a skin test and more importantly if I inadvertently eat any milk products the symptoms begin again and take a day or two to pass. I've been getting along great and don't miss it...much. I have lost some weight by avoiding a food class.

    Is it an actual "Allergy" or is it a Dairy Food Intolerance. If it is the allergy, then you wouldn't want to be eating any dairy, but if it is an intolerance, then hard cheeses and yoghurts are o.k.

    I know what it is like to double and triple check everything. Allergies are rife in my family. My sister can't have any contact with anything from the sea, and my g/son had life-threatening allergies, some of which he is now growing out of. My son had dairy allergies when he was little and would stop breathing in his sleep if he had any at all, but like me can tolerate a bit now and again BUT can eat the cheeses yoghurts (intolerance)

    In time you will find it much easier to buy for yourself.

    Ask your doctor, but I have known people who are allergic to parts of milk able to eat Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Aged at least 1 year.
