How to get DD drink milk or eat dairy products? - Page 3

post #41 of 46

also.. that is pretty amazing but my lo had huge sensitivity to milk with vitamin D.

no matter organic or conventional, if I would give it to her for a while there were

all kinds of symptoms including emotional.. then as soon as we cleaned the system

and switched to no D milk it all was better, then back to D.. decline,

back to without.. better.. so after many a trials we figured out that with her

it was not so mcuh dairy per se but the vitami D that was messing her up,

then the more I red about the vitamin D and how little we know where it comes from

and is it clean and pure etc.. the more I was hesitant .. and then again,

apparently I never thought of it enough but vitamin D is actually a hormon..

so all things considered we felt more comfortable finding milk that has no D.

It was quite a search as turned that almost all milk on the market contains it

except for one brand at natural foods store.

I agree that in general if a child is hesitant to have some foods that often cause people problems, like dairy, it might be because there is a sensitivity. Even young kids can make connection. "Oh, I know that stuff. I always get an ouchy tummy after that." Even if they can't verbalize it yet, they might notice it.

Mamaprincess, vit D is a hormone?  I have not heard that.  My ped told me to give vit D drops (1000)  to my 4 year old.  Where did you hear/read that?

Its not really a hormone, although in certain forms it's been referred to as such.  The paper in the link below summarizes this nicely, and Table 1 provides good definitions.

Evidently there is a problem with poor definitions pertaining to Vit D in medical literature...

 

I came across this article about it, http://www.direct-ms.org/pdf/VitDVieth/Vit%20D%20not%20a%20Hormone%20Vieth.pdf :

"For reference, more rigorous definitions of words pertinent to vitamin and hormone are presented in Table 1. It should be evident from this that Vitamin D is no more a hormone than cholesterol is—both are the structural raw material that one or more hormones are made from. Vitamin D is a vitamin in the truest sense of the word, because “insufficient amounts in the diet may cause deficiency diseases”.
