Can lactose intolerance cause hemroids?

Can lactose intolerance cause hemroids?

Can't digest lactose: A normal person eating a healthy diet including dairy products can get flatulence or bloating. One reason is excess fiber. Since humans don't digest the fiber, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. Gas can build up, causing bloating. ...Read more

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

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?

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

A Moooooooooot Point: You'll never get much detail here. We're only allowed 400 characters.That's it.

My son is lactose intolerant. When he has dairy he has the normal symptoms but also get spots under his arms a day or so after. Is this normal?

Best to have it : Checked out . Hard to guess what those spots are without seeing them. How long has this been going on and they would appear exactly a day or so after he has the milk? Do they go away by itself? Does it look like hives? Have you documented those spots? Do take pictures so you can show them to the doctor. ...Read more

I am lactose intolerant. Along with this i feel severe pain eating almost any fruit, especially  apples. What should I do to get rid of both probs.?

Low FODMAP diet: Certain foods contain sugars and carbohydrates that are relatively difficult for humans to digest, but easy for bacteria in the gut to digest. When the bacteria digest these sugars, they ferment them, and one of the byproducts is gas. The excess gas expands the intestine and results in pain. Some people are more sensitive than others to the gas. Try this diet: http://bit.Ly/12kezpx. ...Read more

Can you still get a complete, balanced diet if you have a gluten allergy and are also lactose intolerant?

Can you still get a complete, balanced diet if you have a gluten allergy and are also lactose intolerant?

Gluten-containing grains (& other grains) are certainly not a necessary part of a healthy diet, and neither is dairy (though lactose-free dairy products like yogurt are an option). One can get all the nutrients needed from vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, eggs & meats. ...Read more
