Ever hear of A1 and A2 milk? Evidently I haven't been paying much attention to Crohn's research lately.
[quote]All milk was A2 until several thousand years ago, when a natural mutation occurred in the ancestors of modern European cattle. Herds throughout much of Asia, Africa and southern Europe remain naturally high in A2 cows.[/quote]
[quote]There is a large body of evidence from more than 100 peer-reviewed medical and science papers linking one of the proteins in A1 milk to illnesses such as type 1 diabetes, heart disease, autism, schizophrenia, auto-immune diseases and Crohn's disease.[/quote]
First MAP and now A1 milk? *sigh*

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I never heard (or is that herd :-) ) of A1 versus A2 milk. I'll have to look into this. I am one of those odd CDers who has no problem with milk/milk products. Maybe Upstate NY cows are descendants of A2 cows :-) If it weren't so fattening, I'd drink a big glass of whole milk today and remember the good old days of childhood and milk delivered to our doorstep.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

That's just plain fascinating. Thanks.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.
