Default Anyone here have a dairy allergy?

Just wondering because I've noticed that when I eat a lot of dairy products I tend to break out, get dark circles under my eyes, and have really bad stomach cramps, etc. I tried to look up the symptoms online and they all seem pretty dead on, and I also noticed that even in foods that you think don't contain dairy, they do, so it can be a real pain to go dairy free. Anyone here allergic to dairy, and have similar symptoms?

I do. Get gassy. Stuffy nose. Asthma problems.

I remember reading somewhere that lactose intolerant people have a hard time forming serotonin. Something like the undigested dairy blocks formation for serotonin.

Its probably not healthy to consume another animals milk anyway.

Yeah that's another thing I forgot to mention, I always feel like I have a cold, or am on the verge of one because my nose is always stuffy. Especially at night it's hard for me to breathe through my nose when I'm sleeping. I guess soon enough I'll try to go dairy free to see if it makes a big difference.

For me, I notice a marked difference in quality of dairy.

I react pretty bad to any cheap icecream or cheese.


But if i have some organic that was made well, I tolerate it much better.

I'm intolerant to dairy myself, and I do get a whole variety of symtoms from eating the stuff which are similar to yours by the looks of it - Bloating, a blocked nose and skin problems.

It's been said that people of Asian and African decent are the most likely to have a intolerance to dairy by the way. Which apparently is due to those cultures not having much of a history of eating the stuff.

If your having asthma problems its a general rule of thumb to stay away from milk. Causes mucus to build up. You can just ask your doctor about that part. There is also a difference between lactose intolerance and accidentally spilling milk on your arm. Causing you to break out in hives and stop breathing.

Dairy makes me tired too, both mentally and physically.

Probiotics, or acidolphilus can take away lactose intolerance in some people.

Gassy? Feel sick? How do you know the dairy is really dairy as from a cow or goat or sheep? Maybe it really came out of the ground. We need to read our food labels carefully and trust our manufacturers.....Part one of nine...

Default There is a difference in a milk allergy and intolerance

I was recently diagnosed with a milk allergy. Intolerance is where your body can't break down the sugar in milk (lactose) an allergy is like having an allergy to anything else. I would suggest going to a doctor and getting tested. I was having extreme digestive problems, my face was breaking out, body pains, and many many more issues. since i have cut out all dairy, i can say i am back to my normal self. IT FEELS GREAT! Go to a doctor and get tested!

Yep, dairy and gluten kind of affect me the same..I break out and get gassy and it feels like my intestines are in knots. Sometimes I get diarrhea and it doesn't even seem like it's worth it to eat stuff with dairy and gluten in it! But it's so good...mm, I have the worst willpower ever. Haha!
