Q. You’ve heard from a lot of people with bad indigestion. I used to be one of them. One day quite by accident I forgot to buy milk. To my surprise the next day the indigestion disappeared. Since I have given up milk, I can literally eat anything, even Mexican food, without difficulty. I now use lactose-free milk and soy yogurt. I hope this helps others.
A. Many adults have difficulty digesting lactose, the sugar in milk. For them, lactose can cause bloating, cramping or diarrhea in addition to indigestion. Thanks for sharing your story.
