Terrible indigestion when i consume anything containing dairy, but lactaid pills don't help. Is it possible to have lactose intolerance that isn't helped by lactaid? My digestion is otherwise perfect.

Terrible indigestion when i consume anything containing dairy, but lactaid pills don't help. Is it possible to have lactose intolerance that isn't helped by lactaid? My digestion is otherwise perfect.

Lactose intolerance: The simple answer is yes. However, you may just need to avoid dairy altogether.

Keeping a food diary will also help as it may be something else. ...Read more
