I have a lot of burping and stomach troubles after milk or ice cream. I tried Lactaid Milk and had the same problems. Am I lactose intolerant?

I have a lot of burping and stomach troubles after milk or ice cream. I tried Lactaid Milk and had the same problems. Am I lactose intolerant?

Burping and milk: Jacob, people with proper lactose intolerance have an absence of an enzyme in the gut that digests milk called LACTASE. If you do not have this (congenitally) then you are intolerant of milk and that causes, cramps and diarrea. Yours sounds more like a functional intolerance, so if it upsets you, just avoid it.

Could you tell me what happens to your body if you drink milk and lactose intolerant?

Lactose intolerance: You may have in such case some or all the symptoms such as abdominal pain, excessive gas, foul smelling gas and a loose to watery bowel movement. This is the result of the inability to digest lactose due to the deficiency of the enzyme lactose. This enzyme breaks down the lactose, which is a disaccharide (2 single sugar molecules attached together) to mono saccharides, that can be absorbed. Read more

What happens if your slightly lactose intolerant, can you cure it by drinking more milk?

Lactose Intolerance: Lactose intolerance is due to inability to produce sufficient enzyme, lactase, to digest lactose, a sugar. You can not induce production of enzyme by drinking more. Therefore, it is recommended that you take supplemental aid like lactaid which does exactly that. Here is more info on this condition: http://www. Laendo. Net/english/lactose-intolerance-31309766.

What will happen if you drink a lactose free milk even though you're not lactose intolerant?

Nothing: Lactose-free milk is just regular cow's milk with lactase-enzyme added to convert lactose sugar molecules to simpler sugars such as glucose and galactose, which can be absorbed without further enzymatic action in the intestine. It will not hurt you in any way to drink lactose-free milk. There is also no particular advantage unless you are lactose-intolerant. Read more

I'm not lactose intolerant but I stopped drinking milk for maybe month or so. Now when I drink milk I get grossed out real bad but I don't get sick y?

Not sure but...: Many feel milk is appropriate for young children, but no other species drinks milk when mature. There are sound reasons from a health perspective to reduce dairy in your diet. The fact that milk grosses you out suggests that some part of you recognizes it is best avoided-see http://www. Pcrm. Org/health/diets/vegdiets/health-concerns-about-dairy-products if you do have dairy choose organic! Read more

Is it healthy to drink 6 glasses of skim/low fat milk every day? Because I'm trying to gain weight. By the way I'm not lactose intolerant.

Not bad but...: 8oz of skim milk have 80 calories in them, so 6 glasses a day would be 480 from the milk alone. Depending on how much & what else you eat, this may be more than you want. Otherwise, it's not a problem. Read more

I feel sick every time I drink milk (which is odd, because I'm not lactose intolerant), what other ways can I get a good source of calcium?

Calcium: There are many foods besides milk which contain substantial levels of calcium. Yogurt, collard greens, black-eyed peas, cheese food, trail mix, canned salmon, baked beans, tofu, and cottage cheese all contain more than 100 mg of calcium per serving. In addition, you could try skim milk or almond milk. Finally, calcium supplements such as Tums (calcium carbonate) are available. Good luck. Read more
