If the lactaid pills don't work, then she may be intolerant to casein, the milk protein. People with casein intolerance have to avoid dairy just like gluten. She would have to read all labels. Casein is in a lot of things like most chocolate, chips, lactose free products, candy, baked goods, ect. I believe that I am casein intolerant, but I have never been tested.
Even more convincing is that she says her lactaid pills hardly ever work.
It would also be a good idea to suggest to her to get bloodwork done for celiac disease since she does have some of the symptoms.
