My 12 year old daughter cant have milk or milk products, due to bowel problems.
But shes lacking calcium badly, is there a suppliment that would work good for her that any one would recommend?
We have tried the lactaid, lactose stuff but doesnt work either.
any suggestions ??
out of curiosity....can she have soy milk? silk makes a great chocolate soy and a very vanilla soy that is great for kids. it's fortified with nutrients to help take the place of milk. she could drink that along with the supplement.
There is a inexpensive and easy to obtain pill that lactose intolerante people can take so they can eat dairy. Also you might want to try goat's milk and products made from goat's milk, it works sometimes for lactose intolerant people. Try introducing a slow but regular amount of dairy into her diet. Increase amounts little bit by little bit. Start with like little bits of yogart and work your way up to servings of milk. Some people can develop the enzyme need to digest lactose. Its worth a shot.
How about Calcium in in vegetable forms i.e. Kale , Broccolli, Spinach. Plus these have Magnesium which works togeather with Calcium..In fact Hopi Greens and Parsley are the highest plant sources on earth...
