Have had to stop having cows milk for the moment, have been using soya instead, on porridge, (not allowed tea/caffine) as before when I had to have this special diet for 2 months, I have found my poo is light coloured and floats, anyone else found this, have read this is malabsorbsion and signifies an intolerence to soya, if this is the case I can use another non-diary milk, on this diet.

It's probably a question best asked to the person who put you on the diet

As a child I was told I had a dairy allergy, because the school milk made me sick, DR put me on what was then called "the gastric" diet, similar to what I am on now, food boiled,steamed,poached,baked, no spices,sauces,pickles. Spoke to my (now) GP because medication wasnt helping, she wasnt sure about the soya, but as soon as I stopped the diet last time, "normal" brown poo, was just wondering basically, if folk who use soya all the time have this. My "condition" is now called dairy sensitivity not allergy.If the problem had continued after stopping the soya milk, it would have been some intrusive and unpleasant medical exams.

Hi nannybeach,

We think you might get a bit more advice and support if we move this thread over to our new topic, Allergies, intolerances and coeliac disease, so we're doing that now.

Not sure about the malabsorption but most vegetarian poo floats - and mine was always light brown. Not so when I eat meat. My allergy child didn't / doesn't have floaty poo.
