Can a milk allergy make a person actually drink more milk?

Craving food. While i periodically hear of patients claiming that they are allergic to certain foods that they crave, I am not aware of any bona-fide study that ever addressed this.

Milk allergy.

My blood test said I have a milk allergy (moderate), but I still drink milk. Could the blood tests have been wrong? Could it weaken my immune system?

Irrelevant test . Unfortunately, food allergy testing by skin test or blood test is not very predictive. A negative skin test is very good about saying a person is not allergic, but positive blood and skin tests are very common and are clinically relevant less than 50% of the time. The real milk test is what happens when you drink it----nothing. This is a problem with the test and not your immune system. Read more...

If I do not have a milk allergy, can I drink whey protein powder shakes?

Yes. In the case of milk allergy, you are allergic to milk protein. This includes both the whey and the casein. It would be safer for you to chose a soy or other alternative protein shake. If you want more protein, you could increase your food intake of non-dairy proteins. Use caution with any protein shake. Consuming more than 60g of protein/day can cause kidney irritation and damage over time. Read more...
Yes. Whey is a dairy component so you shouldn't have a problem. Be sure to carefully consider what your goals are for the supplement. Some are high in carbs - others more protein. Always drink LOTS of water to keep up good urine flow to avoid kidney irritation if too much protein in your diet. http://www.webmd.com/diet/protein-shakes. Read more...
