the protein of the milk

So I went to my first gastro visit after leaving the hospital. Everything great!

He explain that I should avoid all cow milk product mainly because of the protein...but is the protein found in cow's milk the same in goat's milk?

No, It is Caesin or whey I believe...Google protien in goats milk to see if it is.

Could you please fill me in on why milk protein can be bad for Crohn's? I haven't heard that before. I drink organic milk and I've had repeated bowel infections, anyone think there's a connection?
I hope I'm not shooting myself in the foot lol.

For one thing it is said that cows milk is intended for cows. I love milk too but doesnt love me. I use Rice Dream and now they just came out with an Oat Dream. It is not just the protein or lactose, it is the sugar in milk that also causes irritation. I have seen a recent TV commerical where they will have 100% lactose free and low sugar. They are starting to realize the sugar causes the gut pain too.

Pen, the lactose is the sugar, lactose itself is simply dairy sugar.

I'd say if anything, the possible organisms and lactose are the two worst things. If you can't tolerate casein (what cows milk protein mostly contains) you'd know if you've eaten cottage cheese. The riskier part is the possibility of organisms like MAP or whatever else survives the 14 seconds of sterilizing...It takes 17 or more seconds to kill MAP bacteria and they cut it down to save time/money in most of the US manufacturing. I can't speak on behalf of other countries, though.

Lactose is very difficult for many bodies to break down, and there's a pattern of people acquiring issues with it after an IBD diagnosis too.
