I've been lactose intolerant since I was little, and I started taking lactaid pills or generic brand alternatives at age 18. I always did really well with them. Now I feel icky when I eat a lot of dairy. It's like a gluten reaction, but milder. I get pains all over my stomach, and bloating, and my head feels all blah, even when I take enough lactaid or equate dairy digestive enzyme pills. (And I checked to make sure the pills were gluten free.) I've been trying to do some research, but I'm a little confused. I know a lot of people with gluten issues also have dairy issues, including my mom. 1. Is it because leaky gut just causes all kinds of chaos at once? 2. Is it something lactaid pills can't help? Because I only found articles about dairy allergy vs. lactose intolerance, and it doesn't seem like a dairy allergy at all, so one would think lactaid pills would fix the problem, but they're not. 3. Is it because it has to do with what the cows eat? If I had dairy or beef from a grass fed cow, would I feel better than if I had dairy or beef from a grain-fed cow? And If dairy is only a problem because it has gluten in it from what the animal eats, then wouldn't certified gluten free foods with a symbol still be safe because they were tested? (I felt icky after a Freschetta gluten free pizza, which is certified. So if dairy is only an issue because it's glutened, then that would've been picked up when the product was being tested, right?)
