Is it possible to be allergic to all types of cheese except mozzarella? This doesn't make sense to me.

Is it possible to be allergic to all types of cheese except mozzarella? This doesn't make sense to me.

Possible: If one is allergic to dairy and/or the fungus used to ferment it to cheese, then an allergic reaction is possible. Since the fungus used may vary in type or quantity, one may not be reacting to all the cheeses.

I am lactose intollerant, however I am able to eat pizza that is made with fresh mozzarella vs regular cheese. Is there a difference in digestion?

I am lactose intollerant, however I am able to eat pizza that is made with fresh mozzarella vs regular cheese. Is there a difference in digestion?

Threshold issue: Most people, even those with lactose intolerance, have the ability to digest some lactose because they have some lactase enzyme activity. Exceed your threshold to eat pizza "cheese" and you pay for it with gas, bloating, diarrhea. Consume small amounts of lactose (below your lactase enzyme threshold) ; you're good to go. ...Read more

Why does cheddar (all varieties) give me stomach ache but other cheese such as mozzarella, colby jack, etc. do not?

Why does cheddar (all varieties) give me stomach ache but other cheese such as mozzarella, colby jack, etc. do not?

Cheese: The difference may be in the formulation of the cheese. Cheddar to give its texture and consistency uses lactate which can cause stomach bloating pain gas etc. mozzarella and other cheese doesn't. Perhaps try lactaid pill (contains lactase the enzyme that beaks lactate down) prior ingesting your next slice of cheddar. Hope this helps. ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant & i feel sick after eating fried catfish & 2 mozzarella sticks i napped for a while & baby is moving like crazy. What could be wrong?

36 weeks pregnant & i feel sick after eating fried catfish & 2 mozzarella sticks i napped for a while & baby is moving like crazy. What could be wrong?

Probably nothing: Generally a baby in utero moving like crazy is not a problem- we worry much more when the baby does not move. Could be a coincidence or maybe your baby feels a little sick from the rick food too. I am sure it will pass. The homeopathic medicine nux vomica (available at health food stores) is safe & great for relieving reactions to eating the wrong thing. Avoid fried foods for now- eat healthy! ...Read more
