Lactose Intolerance?

Hello, I have a quick question on Lactose Intolerance. Though I have never been diagnosed with it, I use to get very bad stomach aches after eating pizza. I was wondering, how is lactose intolerance diagnosed?? I can eat tons and tons of kit kat bars and other milk chocolates without having any stomach problems. Am I lactose Intolerant or does my stomach just hate pizza?!

Re: Lactose Intolerance?

Hey I'm in the same boat. I can eat some dairy thingsand others it's like I'd rather die. It's even had am allergy test and nothing came up.

I'd try different brands? I've noticed it's all in how they care for their products. If the cheese sat out and got too warm, that's when it gets me the most.

Re: Lactose Intolerance?

Keeping a food diary is really important. Record everything you eat and drink and the quantities. Record your symptoms and the times they occur. It will help you to find patterns.

Lactose Malabsorption is tested with simple breath testing. Each breath test does take approximately 3 hours of your time, but it's worth the investment. I was tested for Lactose Malabsorption, Fructose Malabsorption (FM), and Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO). I was positive for FM and SIBO and am feeling so much better after treatment and being on the low FODMAP diet. I have normal BM's and have eliminated all the IBS symptoms. You can google these for information to determine if you would benefit from breath testing. Find a good GI doc who is skilled in testing and treatment of these issues. Best wishes!
