If tested negative for gluten allergy (celiac), is it still possible to have a sensitivity to it where it causes upset stomach, cramping and loose bms?
Possibly: It depends on the tests that were done to fully and accurately answer this. But there may likely be other food intolerance that is causing these symptoms.

Is it true that you can become lactose intolerant if you eat lactose free products for a long period of time?
No: You either have the genetics for it or don't. Most will have the enzyme in infancy because breastmilk contains this sugar, but it is lost as an unneeded factor with age.

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. Remember, we are the only mammals to consume dairy after infancy (the only period in our lives in which we require milk) so it is natural to loose lactase as we age. Keeping a food diary will also help as it may be something else. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't suspect that I'm lactose intolerant, but 2 minutes after drinking 8 ounces of milk I had to go diarrhea. Could it trigger diarrhea that quickly?

Lactose intolerance would not produce diarrhea within just two minutes of drinking the milk. If it persists, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
