I've been doing reallly well and haven't had a attack in months, then I bought some fat free yogurt at the market and have been eating it as a snack in the evenings before bed. WELL, something got me, big time and I can't identify anything but the yogurt! Does it bother anyone else? I am lactose intolerant, but didn't think yogurt would bother me. Bummer.

I, like you, am also lactose intolerant. For the most part, I can eat yogurt, but occasionally do get an "attack" and the culprit has to be yogurt. I have no idea why it happens -- it isn't supposed to. So, I eat the yogurt occasionally and sparingly (like a half cup at a time).

Yougurt has lactose in it. Depending on the amount of time the bacteria are allowed to ferment the lactose. More time , less lactose. I would think the more sour the yougurt the less lactose.

There is a yougurt called Pavels which is very sour and probably has little lactose in it. It bothers me because it is too sour. I'm not lactose intolerant. Can't take acid foods though due to gastritis.

I'm not lactose intolerant but I cant eat yogurt either. I can handle one but not 2 days in a row and I usually eat the fat free one too.

All times are ET (US)
