Dairy allergy--any others?

Man, everything you all post for food sounds amazing. I'm really limited as I've noticed I have developed an allergic type reaction to dairy. I get really itchy for hours after and most of the time I get achy joints and muscles. It sucks especially doing LCHF. Anyone else have dairy issues?

I don't have dairy issues, but I feel similar when I eat peanut butter - which stinks, because I absolutely LOVE it.

You might check out the paleo forums as they restrict dairy entirely. The do include fruit and some starchy veg but you could ignore those types of foods and probably get some good tips.

Does that goat milk/butter/cheese? Is it it a bad reaction no matter the type of dairy? Like is milk sugar or milk protein worse? Both equally bad? Same reaction with cream?

@ Cathy; I was eating paleo prior to trying NK. But I will have a look there. Might be some good ideas. I could sure use some fresh ideas.
@ green; it appears to be the casein which is affecting me. That is really unfortunate otherwise I could try goat or sheep products. I did try goat cheese. I still got the achey joints and muscle pain. I'm hoping that if I avoid it for 6 months or so..I might be able to eat a small bit here and there.

I don't have an allergy, but I'm aware of what a crap food it is, and how it affects me so I'd like to cut it back out. But when I'm low carb I'm so dependent on it :-/

I do. It brings on asthma. It seems to have sprung up a couple of years ago and it took me forever to figure out the cause.

Butter seems to be OK and cheese and yogurt are the worst. I haven't tried goat products, but an allergy panel rated goat as bad as cow.

I tried NK a year or so ago, but felt terrible on it. I relied on a lot of full fat dairy so I'm not surprised knowing what I know now.

3/12/16- Zion Half Marathon in Zion NP

*My definition of win: I didn't quit, didn't throw up, and they didn't close the course on me.

I am giving no dairy a try to see how my losses are affected. Been looking at Paleo websites (like previously recommended). Going to try and make my own ghee, cream cheese, and sour cream next week.

I am allergic to casein.BIG bloated tummy and hives too,depending on how much I ate.

But I can have hard cheeses like cheddar,without issues.
Ricotta cheese and HWC and half and half,sour cream, don't bother me too.These all have no casein in them.The protein is whey.

I cannot have whole milk,goat milk,yogurt,fresh cheeses like farmers cheese,cottage cheese,queso fresco I think,and fresh mozarella.

If you have trouble with the first group,you might be allergic to something else than casein,like lactose or whey too.

I have found dig enzymes helped me a lot.particularly protease enzyme.
