Bowel incontinence

I’ve had IBS-D for many years. By trying various remedies, I’ve hit upon what I think is the cause, though sometimes I have a blowout that dispels my theory. Anyway, milk and milk products seem to be to cause my diarrhea. But I continued to wander. What, besides lactose, does milk contain that could cause diarrhea? Thank you

The milk protein itself can cause an allergic reaction that will cause diarrhea.
Have you been tested for celiac disease?

@catstx I'm coming in late here, but if you have diarrhea after consuming milk products why would you think it is something more than lactose intolerance? I went through that and as with most lactose-intolerant people I was able to eat aged cheeses and some yogurt. For some reason, my lactose intolerance, which was actually triggered by medication, seems to have subsided. I don't eat a lot of heavy milk products like cream and ice cream but I eat goat cheese again and occasionally cream cheese on a bagel. I drink lactose-free milk, Fairlife, which really is good tasting, better than Lactaid milk, and it has more protein and calcium which is important to me because I have osteoporosis. I was tested for celiac and I did not have it which I tried to tell the NP because I have never had a reaction to wheat products.
