I was diagnosed with both IBD and IBS. My conditions are mild, more of a nuisance than a problem. I have had food intolerance tests done and it was found I rated +4 for dairy, which I'm told means dairy is meant to give me big problems. I have 2 questions:
1) Do people believe that bowel issues cause food intolerance or is it the other way around, that food tolerance cause bowel issues?
2) Despite having a +4 reading for dairy I find that it is only milk that gives me issues, mainly via reflux and upset tummies. Other forms of dairy don't seem to cause me issues. Is there any significane I can draw from the fact that it is only the milk that gives me issues.
