Glutenfree Lactose Intolerant Tabs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I finally figured out, that lactose is the other culprit. I started taking Lactose Intolerance Tabs a couple of days ago. First I felt relieved. Well, actually I still feel relieved, but now suddenly today I get this very, very slight headache, which is normally associated with diarrhea with me from being glutened. Now I start to think that these Lactose Intolerace tabs maybe could contain some hidden gluten? I didn't find them on the list, but I thought, the ingredients on the label were fine. It said: Di-Calcium Phosphate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Lactase Enzyme, Ganeden Lactobacillus Cultures, Sodium Starch Glycolate, Silicone Dioxide, Stearic Acid and FD&C Blue #1 Lake. The Brand is Ganeden Biotech and it says Digestive Advantage and Lactose Intolerance on the front. Maybe somebody knows, if they're glutenfree. Or do you know, which ones I can buy, that are glutenfree???

Hugs, Stef

Lactaid pills, chewable and regular (pills) are gluten-free. I used to take them. There was rumor at one time that they weren't...but they are, website and phone calls verify.

Although I did have a problem with lactose for quite some time, I am back to regular milk with no problems. I couldn't stand the taste of any lactose-free milk until someone suggested "Natrel" lactose free milk. I swear you can't tell the difference! It was delicious! I am not sur if you can get it where you are at though or whether it is only in Canada......

Thanks a lot guys, I will continue to take the Ganeden ones then. I also printed the thread out and will keep it for reference. In case the big "D" should hit me again, I will switch to some other tabs. Maybe, this time the "D" is just stress. I have my GED test next week and although I know, it's easy, I'm always excited before a test. So the "D" might just come because of this.

Good enough diploma :D

No, joking aside. It's a Test of General Educational Development, which is internationally recognized. The tests have been designed to measure major academic skills and knowledge in areas that are learnt in 4 years of high school. The test is 7.5 hours long and the subjects are

Language Arts, Writing

Social Studies


Language Arts, Reading

and Mathematics

When you pass the test the GED certifies, that you have attained the knowledge and the skills in these subjects associated with high school completion. I already took the pre-tests, which are half the questions and I "passed" all of them. When I learnt for it and did the pre-tests, it ocurred to me, that what you have for your high school is exactly the same, that I had for my middle school final tests. So it shouldn't be a big deal. I passed the middle (business) school very good and with almost no problems.

I'm just anxious, just because I'm always anxious before tests. Even if there should be no reason. That's just me. <_<

All this anxiety must have given me brainfog. I figured out, why I have the big "D". I ate grapes and most of the time grapes do that to me. I should have known better and eat them with a banana. Especially when I drink water with it. I just saw the grapes lying in the fruit bowl on the table and THAT reminded me, that I ate grapes two days ago. :unsure:

I should calm down and watch some TV and eat ice cream. I'm too worried right now. I will go now. See you tomorrow.

Hugs, Stef
