I have been lactose intolerant since I was 13. I love ice cream and cake, and so I purchase over the counter lactaid pills. My doctor recommended me to drink lactose free milk, which I do, because I am lacking in calcium. I was wondering if there are other sources of calcium (in food) in which I could consume to boost up my calcium intake without having to resort to taking lactaid pills and calcium supplement pills?
I am trying to figure out if i am lactose intolerant. I can drink milk but, i have found out that i can't eat cheese. I am not sure if it can be one thing or all of them combined. Is there any suggestions?
vitamin D and calcuim would probably be the main ones. a good substitute for milk which may give you those is lactofree. they produce lactose free dairy products, so they'd probably still have the essential nutirents but without the nasty effects of lactase.
