A2 Milk

Has anyone switched to a2 milk and found it to relieve hypothyroid symptoms?

I'm thinking of trying it before going off cows milk completely. Some diet articles recommend it.

I get a lot of sinus and runny nose issues, belly cramps and bloating. Difficulty getting back to my optimal weight I had for years pre thyroid, headaches and lack of energy at times.

Giving up cow's milk might improve the sinus, cramps and bloating symptoms but it won't improve hypothyroid symptoms. Optimal replacement dose is the only thing which will improve hypothyroid symptoms.


I use it and recommend trying it, it tastes nice and is easier to digest than regular milk. You can buy it in Waitrose and Sainsbury's.


Thanks, I will get some. I am really hoping as I find the dairy free alrernatives pretty awful.


Being Vegan & dairy free made no difference to my sinus issues or post nasal drip. It seems to work for some people, so you can only try. I feel better for going back to organic dairy.
