I assumed that cheese wasn't part of the diet (as is all dairy, from what I've read). Aside from that, my understanding is that cheese is normally low lactose, and I haven't had a problem eating it recently. But since I've been having my stomach problems again, I've been eschewing practically ALL dairy, even my beloved cheese.
When I was diagnosed, I was having the same problems, to the point that I couldn't keep anything down and anything I DID eat caused a lot of pain everywhere in my abdomen. I cut out all dairy and was very diligent about it for a month, and I felt a lot better. Then I started to introduce dairy products back slowly, just to see what I might be able to tolerate better than other things. I found that anything with whey was a killer, so is ice cream. Small amounts of milk seemed fine, along with yogurt and cheese (including cottage cheese). Now I'm back to having problems again. I don't know if the intolerance may be a cumulative thing, if my body could only take so much of the dairy again before it started to protest. I don't know. All I know is that I feel like smashed ass again and I'm unable to work out properly because I'm tired and can't eat well. Something's gotta change.
