Found in milk. Lactose is a large sugar molecule that is made up of two smaller sugar molecules, glucose and galactose. In order for lactose to be absorbed from the intestine and into the body, it must first be split into glucose and galactose. The glucose and galactose are then absorbed by the cells lining the small intestine. The enzyme that splits lactose into glucose ...Read more

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.

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
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.

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.

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
