Isn't there some stigma about casein collecting in the bowel in some people?
Sorry Nard, didn't mean to scare you. But you're statement that the scale is going up triggered my memory.

If you can take casein but not whey, then it sounds like you are either allergic to lactose only (which is questionable, because most WPIsolates I'm familiar with remove lactose almost completely) OR you're allergic to the type of beta casein that casein powder is NOT made from...

Either way, it's still difficult to be sure. For instance, you might be using a blend with a butt load of lactose in it...
