Hi, in the book Norm talks about lactose and GERD.
Now if lactose makes GERD worse, does that mean I’m lactose intolerant? Because I don’t have the classic symptoms but the days I eat dairy, I will experience upper abdominal pain later in the day.
What’s peoples experiences with this?Norm RobillardKeymasterApril 25, 2014 at 2:02 pmPost count: 447
Hi Jason, Interesting. Lactose generally causes a fairly immediate response if you’re intolerant – say within an hour or so. Of course, the oligosaccharides in diary as well as milk proteins are problematic for some people as well.JaemeParticipantApril 25, 2014 at 5:02 pmPost count: 348
A friend of mine is casein intolerant (a protein in dairy), and has similar symptoms.jasonking92ParticipantApril 25, 2014 at 7:38 pmPost count: 29
Thanks for the reply norm.
At the moment all I can tell is that after a protein shake, I get slight bloating. A bit less with whey isolate. Even when I take a lactase enzyme. I havent noticed it with probiotic yogurt. I’m always constipated and hardly ever take large poo’s like I use to.
Before reflux I use to pass wind a lot, especially when I ate cheese. Now however, I never get flatulence like that. Could It be because it’s fermenting in my small intestine instead and is coming up the other way?
I swear I have some kind of intolerance but finding it difficult to work it out.
