In brief: Lactose intolerance?

You may have lactose intolerance- many american adults do.
It's an inability to break down milk sugar, and leads to intestinal bloating/gas, sometimes diarrhea. Try using lactaid milk, or soy or almond milk in the place of cow's milk.

In brief: Lactose intolerance

As we get older, sometimes our stomachs can't tolerate the lactose in dairy products.
I would try cutting out dairy from my diet for 2 weeks, and see if it makes a difference. Good luck!
