First of all: we’re not medical experts – we just love delicious lactose free dairy. So, if you do experience any discomfort, please seek advice from medical experts. This here is simply our non-scientific collection of some of the most searched for topics and online questions about the matter. It’s not medical advice - you must always consult with your doctor or dietician if you experience discomfort.
The why’s and what’s of digestive discomfort
If you feel a bit off, you should always consult your doctor or dietician. Have you ever felt some rumbling in your tummy or a general discomfort in your body without being able to put your finger on why? A lot of things can turn out to be the reason why you might feel a bit of a stomachache or abdominal discomfort. Ask your doctor or dietician. They can help you.
It’s totally normal!
The rumbling stomach and stomach grumbles are completely normal. The sounds are a natural part of digesting and food passing through the intestines. If you feel absolutely fine, there’s no need to give it more thought. If you feel a discomfort reach out to your doctor or dietician.
Go with your gut
Changing your food intake and diet is one way to become clearer on what feels good for you. Naturally, healthy food like vegetables should always find their way to your plate as well as vitamins, protein, and calcium – just to mention a few. A varied diet and a healthy water intake are usually a pretty good rule of thumb.
- Lactose intolerance could also play a role in your discomfort. Visit your doctor to learn if this is the case.
