Lactose Intolerance Support Group

Lactose intolerance is the condition in which lactase, an enzyme needed for proper metabolization of lactose (a constituent of milk and other dairy products), is not produced in adulthood. A hydrogen breath test is required for a clinical diagnosis. With lactose intolerance, the result of consuming lactose or a lactose-containing food is excess gas production and often diarrhea.

    How to cure lactose intolerance for life

    4
    I've been looking around the internet and one site suggest using a probiotic called Jarrow Dophilus, which is new to me plus eating whole fat yogurt too. While one suggestion there said go on a diet for 1 week with nothing but milk. I'd like to try these experiments, has anybody else gambled with them?

    Before I was diagnosed for lactose intolerance I was addicted to cheese. Every single lactose free cheese I have eaten tastes like trash. Does anyone know any good lactose free cheese brands available in Canada that tastes like regular cheese.

    What's the best tasting lactose free milk?

    2
    When it comes to milk free of lactose, I've already used dairy milk that's free of lactose. I've also used soy and almond milk too. I did get a chance recently to sample new peanut milk. I couldn't come to any conclusions though by the sample size they gave me. I still haven't tried cashew and rice milk though. I would try the cashew milk if they made it in chocolate. Whereas rice milk just...

    New Pill for lactose intolerance

    0
    Hi.  On a whim I tried a new pill for lactose intolerance called LactoFreedom.   To sum it up, I tool this for a week then stopped, now I have been able to eat cheese and drink milk without the gas, bloating, and diarrhea.    Here is a link to a video and their website.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmYH1YSHrRw&list=PL5NICwK3DeOZwSwiY0UMpOVi42SUeHPWXwww.lacto-freedom.com 
  • I bought lactase enzyme pills from Costco's; good price, very effective, helps me  tolerate dairy products without stomach upset. I highly recommend them.They are Kirkland brand, they come in a box. I believe there are a hundred and fifty tablets in the box. they're wrapped in individual  packets easy to carry in your purse or pocket

    Even aged cheese affects me badly

    I haven't been officially diagnosed. For months I've been suffering continual calf muscle cramps, sometimes severe. I was eating a lot of dairy: skimmed milk with breakfast, quite a lot of tea with milk during the day, and cheese at night.I found a particularly tasty Parmesan called Bella Vitano and began eating a piece every night. After a while I found myself vomiting in the morning. Finally I...

    Lactose Intolerant, but not all the time?

    1
    I can drink skim milk, eat yogurt and cheese, no issues. But 2% milk seems to #$%^ me up something fierce. I switched to 2% about a week ago and ever since, I've been feeling super bloated, culminating in this past weekend spending way too much time in the bathroom. This morning, had 2% again, but took a Lactaid pill with it, so far no issues.Am I imagining things, or is it possible to only be...
