Hello doctor,

My stomach gets upset when I drink milk, orange juice, or even yogurt which is normally good for an upset stomach. I cannot digest banana, corn flakes, and many other foods, and it has been going on for a long time. I have been to many doctors and they had endoscopy and colonoscopy tests but nothing came out bad. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand you must be very upset about your condition. So you see the diets you are kind of allergic to are containing milk protein. Yes, there are some diets that contain no milk, but the diet that predispose you to have stomch upset will disturb your stomach as often as one has allergies to almost every diets the person takes.

So, I suggest you to cut down your dairy intake. It occurs due to the deficiency of an enzyme called lactase which usually digests the milk. Or you can purchase a commercially available drug containing lactase enzyme. Tablet Lactaid 9000 FU just every time before having a milk-based diet. If you want to discuss more I am here to help.

Regarding follow up:

Follow up in one week.
