It is advised that athritis sufferers avoid milk. Is this to avoid lactose or all milk contents. Can goats and ewe milk be use instead?

Welcome to the forum,you don't say what type of Arthritis you suffer from,it would be good if you could tell us as the advice would be easier to give for all our forum users otherwise you sound like an advert for Lactose free diet and that is not allowed on this forum.
Hope all goes well Christine0
stickywicket Member Posts: 27,428Who on earth advised that? What are their qualifications? Which type of arthritis were they referring to? There are lots of charlatans about. Eat a sensible, Mediterranean type diet. It won't cure any type of arthritis but will make it easier to live with.0

This covers the issue quite well
Parlicoot Member Posts: 61From Daffy's link: "Despite conflicting information, the research paints a positive picture for milk-based products overall. A 2017 review of 52 clinical studies, published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, concluded that dairy generally has anti-inflammatory effects, except in people allergic to cow’s milk."
