Has anyone been told by their GI to not drink Milk? That was one of the first things my GI told me not to drink. I love Milk, but I havent had it in over a year. The reason I am asking is I want to find out the reason why I should not drink it. I know it coats the intestine pretty well, in fact, I saw an article saying milk might replace barrium dye for some intestine tests. I figured, if it coats the intestine, and you have ulcers, it would probably make those ulcers not feel very good. However, if it has something to do with the Lactose and the way it is broken down, and creates gas, then that is something completely different, and would go for any dairy across the boards.
This will help me out because I will know if I can only drink soy milk, rice milk, or if I can get closer to those milk alternatives that actually taste like milk, like lactaid. Oh what I wouldn't do for some milk and cookies. But for now, I will settle for my rice milk (non-dairy) and puffed corn cereal.
