Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

New Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet Cookbook

I don't know why I didn't catch this when I posted Gluten-Free, Casein-Free (GFCF) Diet Helps Autistic Children a week ago, but a major new cookbook on the GFCF diet has been published.

The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook: The Ultimate Guide to the Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet, by Pamela Compart and Dana Laake came out late last year. It retails for $24.95, but is cheaper at Amazon and I'm sure other locations.

Book Description
The uniqueness of this book is that it not only provides gluten-free milk-free substitutes and recipes, it provides successful suggestions for feeding the picky eater. The authors share details about just how and why the diet works. The specialty ingredients are explained and extensive sources provided. There are also testimonials from the parents and from the children themselves.

About the Author
Pamela Compart, M.D., is a developmental pediatrician and a functional medicine physician. She is the founder and director of HeartLight Healing Arts, Inc., which is an integrated health care center providing comprehensive traditional and complementary medicine services for children and adults. Dana Laake, RDH, MS, LDN is a licensed nutritionist, talk show host, and educator. Through her practice, Dana Laake Nutrition, she provides preventive and therapeutic medical nutrition services to adults and children.

The reviews on Amazon are good, so this should be another major resource for those parents facing this challenging problem.
