You can still drink the lactaid milk but taking the probiotic daily will possibly also aid with your IBD symptoms plus, you might be surprised at what products contain lactose, it's not just in dairy, this way you won't have to pop a lactaid pill when you decide to have certain flavored dortitos or ichiban soup (both contain lactose).
well I tried Align...and it didn't do anything bad, but I didn't really see a difference either. And VSL #3 sounds good, but it's SO expensive.
I think I just need to get to a GNC or something and find a new kind of probiotic.
btw.. Doritos...not a good idea for me LOL. I stay away from most chips other than tostitos. Anyways I am really weird.. I can tolerate some cheese, ice cream etc, but ONE sip of reg milk and I am awful. So I just sorta..stick with what's good for my body I guess. Probiotics are good tho.
I went to elliots last weekend and got primadophilus reuteri for $23 for a 90 day supply. Personally I think that's a good way to go in saving money. I think it's working for me, not sure yet though.
