I have been gluten-free for about 6 weeks now, and dairy free for 5 weeks. Just getting to feeling a lot better, and yesterday I broke down and had a starbucks eggnog latte (telling myself it would be a test.) Well, I prepared myself for the worst stomach issues all day yesterday, but they never came. I was excited until I woke up this morn with typical lactose gas, bloating, loose poo, cramps. I always thought lactose int. was supposed to show up nearly immediately or up to 5 hours later. I had the latte at 10am yesterday? I also find that the smallest amounts of milk bother me - even if its only a tiny ingredient in a product? Has anyone else experienced this?

Not for me, for me its almost 1 hour after having a shake or something that I will have an issue. But for me, its intermittant. Sometimes I would have that issue and sometimes not, that made it real hard to decide what was causing it. For me I think I am more lactose intollerant if I have had a heavy week of Gluten filled diet.

Not had a delayed reaction.

No my lactose intollerance hits me almost immediately. I pretty much gotta know where the bathroom is in a place if I have a little dairy. Even the 1/2 cup a day rule is too much for me sometimes.
They always say that after going gluten/dairy free for a while you can tolerate lactose again...I hope you are one of those fortunate ones because i'm not :lol:
I've been gluten and lactose free (99% of the time) for almost 4 years and my lactose intollerance sure hasnt lightened up any!!!
