Casein Cow Milk Agf78 Igg
Thank you. I was dianosed with casein intolerance. I've been avoiding cow dairy. How do I know if I'm supposed to avoid goat's milk/cheese too?
Separate protein: The way your immune system works a sensitivity is to a specific origin, like the protein from cows is different than protein from goats,so you are not automatically sensitive to the goat product. You can be tested for sensitivity to goat products, but I would consider it safe unless your system starts to signal otherwise. ...Read more

How much cow milk per day is OK or safe to give to a one year and 4 month old baby. She like milk a lot?

My 3 year old son drinks lots of milk, about 8 bottles a day. What would you recommend almond milk or cow milk?
Cut back on the milk: Truly as a pediatrician I strongly recommend that he not drink so much milk. Too much milk consumption in toddlers is a huge risk factor for iron deficiency anemia - which can be quite severe. Your 3 yr old should not be taking a bottle at this age. He should be drinking from a cup, and his milk consumption should be around 4 cups per day max. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
