However, my lower left side and back pain diminished greatly. I had a heavier dinner (more meat) for dinner and took another. I didn’t notice any burning this time and generally felt ok.
Many people who have never been diagnosed as lactose intolerant or “lactase deficient” may notice that milk and other dairy products cause problems that dont occur when eating other foods. The severity of symptoms varies depending on the amount of lactose each individual can tolerate. Lactose intolerance is a condition that causes stomach discomfort. It’s your body’s dislike of the sugar contained in milk. This includes all dairy products.
You might be able to increase the amount of lactose you tolerate by slowly adding more dairy to your diet. Your body will respond by increasing its lactase production. Low-lactose dairy products. Not all dairy products contain the same amount of lactose (see chart). For example, mozzarella and ripened cheeses, such as cheddar, Swiss, blue, and brie contain almost no lactose, so they are usually easily tolerated.
More common than secondary lactose intolerance is primary lactose intolerance. People who develop primary lactose intolerance start life making normal levels of lactase – a necessity for infants, who get all their nutrition from milk.
Remember also that calcium is absorbed and used only when there is enough vitamin D in the body. A balanced diet should provide an adequate supply of vitamin D. Fortunately, lactose intolerance is relatively easy to treat. No known way exists to increase the amount of lactase enzyme the body can make, but symptoms can be controlled through diet.
You’ll also need to make sure you’re getting enough nutrition from either lacto-free foods or dietary supplements. In most cases, cutting down on or avoiding sources of lactose and replacing them with lactose-free alternatives is enough to control the symptoms of lactose intolerance.

Is it possible for the betaine HCl tablets to cause increased reflux, gas when you first start taking them?
No diet has been proven to prevent GERD. However, certain foods may ease symptoms in some people.
It is important not to confuse lactose intolerance with a milk allergy, which can be fatal. Unlike lactose intolerance, a milk allergy can be life threatening, so it is important to get an accurate diagnosis of symptoms, particularly in children.
If you see a link, try eliminating foods that contain dairy (cheese, yogurt, butter, milk, and milk byproducts) from your diet to see if your reflux improves. Meeting with a dietitian can also help you with diet changes or dairy elimination. Usually, avoiding foods that contain lactose is enough to ease your symptoms. It’s important to note, though, that lactose intolerance doesn’t directly cause heartburn or acid reflux. It’s the other symptoms that may or may not aggravate your reflux.
It angers me that doctors don’t warn you of the possible side effects. I often get reflux after I eat.
