Yogurt made with active and live bacterial cultures is a good source of calcium for many people with lactose intolerance. When this type of yogurt enters the intestine, the bacterial cultures convert lactose to lactic acid, so the yogurt may be well-tolerated due to a lower lactose content than yogurt without live cultures. Frozen yogurt does not contain bacterial cultures, so it may not be well-tolerated.
I’m lactose intolerant. Can I eat Chobani?
Sensitivity to lactose varies by person, but many people who experience discomfort from lactose can eat Chobani without any negative effects.
This is because Chobani is naturally lower in lactose than regular yogurt due to the straining process we use to make it, which removes much of the lactose from our products.
Also, the probiotic cultures we add our yogurt help to break down lactose so that it’s more easily digested.
Yogurt has gained a following in the United States as a healthy snack. Since yogurt is a dairy product, it contains lactose. Glucose and galactose bond together to form lactose, or milk sugar. Millions of people throughout the world are lactose intolerant; their bodies do not produce enough lactase, the enzyme necessary to digest lactose. Often lactose-intolerant people can eat yogurt because of the special process that turns milk into yogurt.

Yes - its a no no, its still cow milk. So my son is also gluten-free/LF - In australia we have two brands of lactose free yogurt that are easy to come by - or else soy yogurt.
thanks for the response. My son does eat soy yogurt from time to time. I would like to give him the greek style yogurt because of the good things in it (probiotics, calcium, protein). Have You ever tried to give your son the greek style yogurt? I heard that it is very low in lactose and because of that some of the lactose intolerant crowd can tolerate it.

Yeah I have, some people can tolerate it - he just cant, there are still other things he can't tolerate which I can't work out...its a minefield - just give it a try I reckon.
He could also be casein intolerant. Some people react to casein, a protein in cow dairy. Lactaid pills and Lactaid milk don't help people with casein intolerance. Lactose is a sugar in cow dairy and when it isn't digested (broken down) it is available for bacteria to feed on. The bacteria get real happy and multiply like crazy. They cause bloating (they make gas) and diahrea. Casein may cause similar or different symptoms, like pain and bleeding, if he is intolerant to it.
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

You would need a yogurt maker, and a strainer. There is a strainer called Euro-Cuisine which sells for about $25 and makes Greek style yogurt. As for yogurt makers there are many various ones available to suit personal needs such as making a large quantity at once or making several smaller servings in little jars.
Lactose intolerance levels supposely change over time so it is hard to know exactly how much lactose a person can tolerate at different times in life. My lactose intolerance has worsened but my younger brothers seem to lessen allowing them to eat things they couldn't before. I did have a lactose intolerance test a few years ago in which the lactose intolerance level readin is 20 and mine was 156 so I have to avoid all lactose.
