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

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. Better to do some Googling to respectable websites. I don't think there is any potentially viable food that is good or bad for everyone. You have a unique metabolism and you'll need to make decisions based on substantial nutritional facts. Sorry, but until you are a genius in this, one word for you: LACTAID. Now get goin'! ...Read more

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

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

I believe I am lactose intolerant as after just a glass of milk I get exstremly gassy, but I love dairy products, what can I drink to lessen the gasses, as its uncomfortable, just one glass of milk makes me gassy for 2 days a out?

Lactose-free dairy: Confirm a lactose (milk sugar) intolerance by a lab test (seldom done) or by watching his pattern of symptoms: perfectly normal when not eating dairy, but gassy with poop changes soon after eating dairy. In California, lactose-free cow milk, yogurt, and ice cream are sold. If one cannot find those products, just buy lactase enzyme tablets. People use 1/2 to 2 tablets before each serving of dairy. ...Read more

Am I lactose intolerant if I get gas and the runs when I drink milk?

If your problem resolves with concomittant use of lactase enzyme when eating the same milk products (that cause gas & diarrhea in the absence of lactase) then lactose intolerance is likely. More elegant lactose intolerance testing is available too. ...Read more

I am lactose intolerant and recently noticed that I am able to have yogurt for breakfast w/o the symptoms I typically get after eating anything with lactose (pizza, ice cream, cream, etc.)?

Amount of lactose: Assuming the cream is not heavy cream, the amount of lactose (milk sugar) in the yogurt is likely significantly less than in the foods that cause you problems. Heavy cream is mostly milk fat, so if you can tolerate yogurt, intolerance of heavy cream would be more likely a fat intolerance. ...Read more
