Dairy withdrawal period

If you're lactose intolerant, could you please comment on how long did it take you to stop having symptoms after applying elimination diet (no dairy). I want to test the assumption but don't know for how long should I go.

Also, what are the worst foods for and which ones are more or less ok?

What about grass-fed/grain-fed butter, cottage cheese and cream? Are hey as bad for you as milk?

Thank you!

John, reading your last few posts, if you keep eliminating foods there will be nothing left :)

I'm very lactose intolerant. Even trace amounts will mess me up. It takes a solid week to two weeks to see symptoms (digestive issues, seborrheic dermatitis) to clear up.

I really have to eliminate all dairy, including butter, cottage cheese and cream. They aren't as bad as milk, but they cause symptoms to return, nonetheless.

I'm lactose intolerant, but can digest raw milk just fine.

For me, symptoms generally take 24-48 hours to clear.

I can eat butter & heavy cream, no problem, as well as hard cheese. Otherwise, I go for lactose-free kefir & sour cream.

From the other answer, it looks like there is a continuum of symptoms.
