No. Lactose intolerance generally causes some gassiness, some bloating in the tummy, and some loose stools. Sometimes there is also constipation. If there are recurrent or serious seizures, a person likely has something worse than just being lactose intolerant. Lactose is not necessary, meaning a person can find plenty of foods or drinks that do not contain lactose.
Hi, I have emetophobia so when I get loose stools I worry that I will get gastro. What are some other causes for loose stools? I did have slightly spicy food for dinner last night and I also am lactose intolerant.
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!
