since dx i went back to eating fish, poultry, red meat, eggs and dairy, all in limited amounts making sure to include a wide variety of vegetables especially dark leafy greens.
as for current milk/cream intake, i take a little in tea or coffee. 2-3 cups per day max, usually. i also eat limited amounts of cheese.
you could consider an approach where you balance inflammatory vs anti-inflammatory foods.
if you click this link
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/dai ... ducts/71/2
you can see that a cup of 2% milk is mildly inflammatory with an IF of -71. so 8 cups of milk would be in the neighbourhood of IF= -580.
next, if you follow this link to info on a cup of boiled spinach with salt (i was thinking of saag),
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/veg ... cts/2926/2
that is strongly anti-inflammatory with an IF of +466!
so it looks to me like a cup serving of spinach a day could cover off 6 cups of milk anyway. what do you think? how much actual milk do you put in your tea? half a cup?
of course it's not enough to just look at milk and spinach you have to go through the daily diet and figure out if you're balanced or not, and how much change you have to make to get back into the anti-inflammatory side of things.
hope that helps!
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
