I haven't had a problem drinking milk in the past (that is, Before UC). I've been tested by Prometheus and a genetic predisposition to lactose intolerance is highly unlikely. If I don't have diarrhea or abdominal pain, is there a reason to avoid milk during a flare?

Thanks,

No, if you can drink milk then go for it :) Some people become lactose intolerant with UC so it's them that have to be careful of dairy products.

No reason to if you're not lactose intolerant. I'd say that you might eventually realise your limit amount...there's always lactaid.

That's awesome you're not....the protein supplements with whey isolate will be something for you to consider for weight gain. Of course, many have artificial sweeteners...just read the labels.

Funny you should post milk. Before UC I was a milk aholic - go thru a gallon of fat free milk a day. Then the dreaded day came - BOOHOO I AM NOT SUPPOSE TO DRINK IT! However, I feel that I am beginning to be on the road to recovery and at lunch today I had a tuna sandwitch w/ 1/2 slice romaine lettuce, one slice of tomato (seeded of course) and 4 ozs of milk. Hope I don't regret this tomorrow!

Don't let anyone tell you your not supposed to consume anything. There may be guidlines for diets but you still have to experiment with your own body. I used to eat cereal every morning before UC. Now I can only buy a half gallon of lactaid every couple of months. Darn the bad luck... :)

Thanks, guys -- I know this seems like a common-sense question, but thought there might be some reason to avoid milk that I hadn't thought of. And you all would know! What a wealth of experience to be found here...

I've actually been in remission before and ate some of my roommates regular milk with cereal and started bleeding the next day. There may or may not have been a relation to the incident, but that is enough to make me pass on milk. I do want to experiment again though b/c I like milk.
