As a LI mother with LI kids, I would like to share info. for those who just aren't sure.
You do not have to be born LI, most people become LI at a later age, My father did at the age of 30 & I did at the age of 16 passing it on to my kids at birth.
What is LI? It's your bodies inability to break down milk sugars in dairy.
When you start to become LI it tends to happen in stages and get worse over time.
Stage 1 is just gas after you have dairy products.
Stage 2 gas becomes gut wrenching pain.
Stage 3 gut wrenching gas is accompanied by diarrhea.
Stage 4 diarrhea within 10-30 minutes of eating.
The good news is you can still enjoy all your cheeses, ice creams etc.. by taking lactaid pills and or using lactaid milk. They have started selling generic lactaid pills in dollar general for $4 a box. If you can't swallow pills they do sell great tasting chewables at drug stores. Thanks to lactaid we eat like normal people.
