If milk "doesn't like you" (i.e. causes stomach/intestinal distress, gas and worse!), a person suffering with this is probably lactose-intolerant. Using it in cooking isn't going to make the problem go away (and milk is found in the most unlikely sources, such as prepared gravies and sauces). However, I've found Lacataid and Dairy Ease milk combats the problem for me (also the tablets made to counteract the milk, although they don't normally totally negate the effects of consuming milk or milk products).
But for some reason, cottage cheese and yogurt are well-tolerated by me; maybe it's the cultures involved. Thanks for the good reminder about our calcium needs:)
