FODMAPs: or Fermentable oligo-, di- and monosaccharides and polyols in your diet can be fermented by bacteria in your intestine and cause cramps, gas and diarrhea. Try a low FODMAP diet for a few weeks and see how it works. https://stanfordhealthcare.org/content/dam/SHC/for-patients-component/programs-services/clinical-nutrition-services/docs/pdf-lowfodmapdiet.pdf Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

I'm not lactose intolerance, fine with milk n cheese etc. but I get severe diarrhea and stomach cramp 1-2 hrs  after eating Greek yogurt. Why is that?

Greek yougurt: and GI symptoms. There must be something in the yogurt that you are sensitive to. Please read the label and see what's in it as a flavoring, coloring, preservative, etc. Consider eating a different brand or non-Greek yogurt. Peace and good health. ...Read more

My mother inlaw, started drinking almond silk in place of milk, due to lactose intolerance. She needs calories, due to weight loss, now she is experiencing diarreah since starting it. Could this be from the silk?

My mother inlaw, started drinking almond silk in place of milk, due to lactose intolerance. She needs calories, due to weight loss, now she is experiencing diarreah since starting it. Could this be from the silk?

Could be...: But there are many causes of diarrhea. If the almond silk is the cause diarrhea should resolve within a few days of stopping it. Prove that almond silk is the cause of diarrhea by drinking it after diarrhea has resolved. If loose bowel movements return promptly you will have a pretty unambiguous answer. Why not drink lactose-free milk? ...Read more

After I have milk, i can't have any more and i get diarrhea, if it's not lactose intolerance, then why is this?

Lactose Intolerance: I am assuming that when you say "can't have any more" I am assuming that you are feeling bloated and is unable to ingest any more. This may be related to increased distention of the intestine due to gas. However, there are other conditions that may cause this type of symptoms for which you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Hi, my 9m old baby's stool pH is 6 & she is having diarrhea since 1month. Doc saying she is havin lactose intolerance. Though she is growing well. Thx?

Maybe: It is hard to advise since more information about the child's history is needed. A pH of 5.5 or less indicates an acidic stool. A low pH can indicate carbohydrate or fat malabsorption. Typically infants have a milk protein intolerance, not a lactose ( sugar) intolerance. If removing milk from his diet doesn't work, may need other studies done. ...Read more

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
