Possibly: An allergy to the protein (whey) inthe milk can resolve, but the child could still have a lactose intolerance that could cause him to have diarrhea when eating dairy. However, i can't put together how a lactose intolerance or dairy allergy would cause hypoglycemia unless the diarrhea is sooooooooooo severe that it causes intestinal malabsorption of other foods.
