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.

I have the same probs. Im lacto/fructose intolerant. I stick to a very bland diet, Breakfast: cornflakes, rice crispies, lacto milk. Lunch: rice cakes, lacto marg, marmite, sometimes cucumber (which seems to be alright in small doses), my home made flapjacks (which I substitute butter, with lacto marg). Dinner is usually chicken (chunks, fillets wrapped in bacon), new potatoes, sweet pots, sometimes small amount of lettuce. I can eat believe it or not eat lite mayonnaise as it has no milk, and have a bad habit of having sweet BBQ sauce as flavour to meats as I crave flavouring. Soya ice cream - small amount, cant even eat dark chocolate now. Its knowing how bad your lactose affects u and limiting and trial and error. I cant even eat lacto yoghurts, cheese. I even have gluten free pasta, eat alot of boiled rice which I love and occasionally put a few peppers in with lite lacto dressing. I hope this helps.

    Has anyone been told by their GP to cut out gluten and lactose? I have read an article that one or the other should be avoided
