  • Cole doesn't have lactose intolerance os i can't help on that but I do and i developed it a few years ago.

    I'll try and make sense while i explain it - it was a long time ago when i had it explained to me. Lactose intolerance is basically the inability to process the lactose properly and what happens is that the unprocessed lactose will build up in the body until the body has too much and it makes you ill. Stopping lactose allows the body to catch up on itself again and deal with it.

    I've heard a lot of people say that lo's can grow out of it which is awesome...I wish i could! Lol! For an adult its all about finding your limits - it took me a good while to get the intolerance to settle then i started reintroducing foods into my diet and learned when I'd had too much but over time it got better. Used to be that one icecream could set me off but now i'm fine with ice cream from time to time. I learn my limits and now mostly eat what i want so long as i don't push certain things. Bizzarely - pregnancy cured it for a while.. i had icecream twice a day on honeymoon and was just fine!

    sure you'll probably get more useful help relating to lactose intolerant lo's rather than one ice cream addicted adult but hope it helps a little bit
