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.

I have heard that the lactose is sort of " eaten up" to make yogurt. But I don't have this problem so I just found this.

http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/lactoseintolerance/

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.

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.

Perhaps you could try making your own using Lactaid Milk which is 100 % lactose free and is what I do in order to have it.

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.

    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.

    • I was just diagnosed in March and I totally feel you. I'm having a hard enough time with determining which lip glosses are safe, let alone all my face products etc. I feel like this 'grey area' is the biggest annoyance with Celiac. So many foods/cosmetics I thought were safe after reading the ingredient list are actually not safe at all! One website says it's safe, one says its not. All these unfamiliar ingredients and even after googling term after term still so many grey areas!! I'm sure in time it gets easier and second nature and you learn by trial and error but holy this constant uncertainty is super annoying haha.
