Heavy Cream and Lactose Intolerance?

Anyone here Lactose Intolerant but do okay having some HC? I take lactase everyday (24 hour formula). Ice cream is really bad for my L.I. but I seem to do okay with most cheese and some milk. I'm wondering if the combo of sugar in ice cream with the lactose is what makes symptoms worse but if I have coffee with a little HC and maybe sugar free syrup, it won't be so bad? I probably just need to test if out but thought I would ask and see what your thoughts are. Thanks

I am not bothered by hard cheese, Greek yogurt, Light Cream or Heavy Cream. Ice cream KILLS me...even sugar free. I think it has to do with the Coldness of it...good luck!!

I do OK with HWC mostly because the amount you can have is limited anyway. Google lactose intolerance and find a list of offending foods. Some have much more lactic acid than others. My serious offenders are:

-sour cream, even a small amount
-gravy mixes (that's pretty much what you get at a restaurant)
-anything with non-fat dry milk

I tolerate well:
-yogurt
-HWC
-hard cheeses (but then again, I'm only eating an ounce at a time).

If I know I'm having a heavy dairy meal, I'll take an Acidophilus pill beforehand. I'd say it reduces my symptoms by 90%.

Good luck with this.

One thing I'd like to add: If I consume the item containing lactic acid on an empty stomach equals 4 hours running back and forth to the restroom (TMI, I know :blush. I recommend combining the dairy (in serious moderation) with other foods which aren't likely to cause bathroom issues.

Another thing, I've used Lactaid in the past. It worked fine until I used it before several meals in a row. After that, I became nauseous. It does warn you of this on the label.

Again, the Acidophilus pills helped tremendously.

As a child and young adult I had a severe allergy to milk which I managed to outgrow eventually. However, I still avoid most dairy because the symptoms return if I don't watch it. Ice cream, even sugar free, is the number one culprit, followed by cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream and milk. SOme yogurt and hard cheeses I can do if I eat just tiny amounts. And dairy mixed with artificial sweeteners - sugar free ice cream, some flavored yogurts......KILL me!

Well, just think about it. You're body cannot break down the milk-sugar lactose (because your body does not produce the enzyme lactase to do so). There is virtually no lactose in heavy whipping cream because it is all cream (the fat). You should not have any problem at all digesting cream any more than any other fat.

I am not lactase deficient myself, but my mother is, and I suggested to her she try cream. She did NOT have any ill effects from cream.

I'm allergic to dairy, and I think it's something in milk fat that does it to me- skim milk or skim cheeses doesn't usually bother me, but fatty cheeses, cream, sour cream, etc. are torture- or at least they used to be. For some reason, on low carb I never have a reaction to them.

Thanks everyone!!! I think food combinations play a big part with my L.I. and symptoms being worse on a high carb diet. I notice when I am consuming very little sugar (15 grams or less per day on Sugar Busters) and eating real foods, I have less problems with L.I. I'm going to try coffee in the morning. I'm not even a coffee drinker but lately I have been craving it for some reason. Let's see what happens.

This is me too. Heavy cream does not bother me at all. I have it in my coffee everyday.

My experience has been that dairy causes excess mucus, excess mucus leads to infection and eventually broncitiis. So yes, I believe so. I have to watch how much I have. Right now I've been taking tons of Mucinex because I overdid dairy the last couple of weeks and can feel an infection coming on.

Thanks. I read a report recently that dairy does not cause mucuos, so I wondered.

I would have to differ with that report. When ever I have milk or something milk based, I definitely have problems with mucus. Maybe it happens to people who have sensitivities to it?

An old teacher I had told me that if you get a mucous-ey throat after drinking milk or eating something milk-based, it means you're slightly allergic/sensitive to it, even if you don't have any stomach problems.

However, this teacher also said some pretty crazy things in the day... so who knows

Yup, I'm definitely allergic/sensitive to it. Enough for it to turn to broncitiis if I'm not careful

If one is lactose intolerant does that also mean one is allergic/sensitive to dairy and should avoid it for fear of stalling weight loss?

I'm lactose intolerant and can't decide if I should quit dairy during induction or not. So far I tried three days with dairy products and four days without, no difference. I can tolerate greek yogurt and butter, nothing else.

No, that's not what that means. If one is lactose intolerant it simply means that the gene they have for producing lactase (the enzyme that breaks down the milk sugar lactose) is turned off. That is all. No connection to weight loss.

OK great. So the way to tell if dairy stalls you is to just try going without it and see what happens? Thanks!
