I posted recently about DD's IgG results which showed up a cow's milk allergy along with 12 other foods including wheat, many legumes, nuts, eggs and soy. Her symptoms are constipation, chronic UTI, low iron, and some behavioural issues. I'm trying to plan an elimination diet and it would be very convenient to include some sheep and goat dairy (she didn't show up any sensitivities to these on the IgG) but is it really better to eliminate ALL dairy products just to be sure?

*Most* people who are allergic to "dairy" in the cow form can't do any of them. The proteins are all very similar.

I have been told that the casein in goat's milk is much closer to that in human milk than is casein from cow's milk and for this reason is much more easily digested than cow's milk. I have a daughter who is allergic to cow's milk, who can eat goat cheese with no problems.

My son had dairy allergies when younger - he did fine on goat's milk.
