    Lactose Intolerance?

    I can drink up to like 2 pints of milk within half an hour, but after that I get like explosive diarrhea 30-60 mins after. With breakfast milk and other things containing milk I seem to be fine.

    Does this mean i'm Lactose Intolerant or simply that I have 'milk limits'?

    LOL, I'd just say its limits. If it was mild lactose intolerance, you'd see more of a reaction from small amounts of lactose like in cheese and ice cream too.

    It all depends on the amount of lactase that is present, and if you overwhelm your system with lactose you will "run out" of lactase. This is the reason why small amounts of lactose do not cause any problems. You can say that you are mildly lactose intolerant.

    Aha, thanks for the replies.

    I would say 2 pints is a fair amount for half an hour though, I always have my protein shake right after a workout and im fine.

    I'll just remember I have limits

    Oh and PizDoff, sorry about that, I hope I didnt put you off your dinner - I mean the words

    EXPLOSIVE WET DRIPPING DIARRHEA are pretty nasty I would agree
