Lactaid

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, just an update on my angry gut. Last week I went to the pharmacy at my aunt's (fellow celiac, or as she calls it "silly-ass sprue) urging. She still takes it 20 years later. 

I have never thought dairy was my issue because before I was diagnosed I didn't notice that it bothered me, and it's never been consistent. Also, I wasn't having reactions to dairy right away. It was super delayed. Like, into the next morning.

anyway, I bought some Lactaid and I've been taking it whenever I eat dairy, before I take my first bite. If it's a lot of dairy (last night I had Alfredo) I'll take two. I haven't had gas or loose stools since the day I took it. It could be a coincidence but it's an easy fix if it was a lactose issue. Wish I had done it sooner.

maybe others can give it a try if you haven't. Can't hurt.

And I do get that if you have an "allergy" to dairy or an issue with casein that Lactaid won't work. But if it's lactose then Lactaid seems to really help.

Lol I kept telling you to drop dairy for a week and see if that was it. I still suggest going 100% dairy free for a week. You will feel amazing, especially since your having issues with it. The lactaid helps, but imagine how much more energy and how much better your gut will feel when it is not having to work over time to something your have issues with,  TONS of dairy free options where you can still get your calories and cheese fix....hell I just made a huge pot a poor mans mozzarella cheese sauce 4x my normal reciple and added beyond meat beef crumbles to it this morning. >.> and slathered a ladle of it over my scrambled eggs and spinach I had for breakfast.
