She carries lactaid tablets, and drinks skim lactaid milk. So look into the calories there, too.

He still enjoys dairy (no glasses of milk or milkshakes) but loves his cheese. He just takes a lactaid pill (uses generic from Costco) with his first bite and is usually fine.. sometimes the gas is pretty funky but it isn't a huge deal. I keep his pills in my purse and he also keeps some in his vehicles incase he's out.

i know this doesn't help much but I'm just lazy. I would suggest though not being lazy like me and maybe lookin into the pills the girls mentioned or other methods to make the impact not so bad....

The Lactaid tablets really do help. I'm a chef so if you would like me to suggest some recipes or revamp some of your favorites I would be more than happy to!
Also, next time you go to the doctor, if changing you diet doesn't help, have your gall bladder checked. I was sick for about 3.5 years before the dr. figured out I had a diseased gall bladder and needed it removed. I tried every drug and diet imagineable! Since it was taken out I've had no more problems!

I have IBS too.. I keep immodium with me (actually generic from Costco) but at the first slight gurgle which usually happens while eating, I take half an immodium and the "urge" usually goes away...
My IBS seems to come and go. Sometimes I can eat anything and everything but when I was first diagnosed, I couldn't eat or even brush my teeth before 10:00am or I'd be sick for most of the day.

In some people as you age, you start to lose the enzymes lactase used to to break down sugar (lactose ) found in milk ect. Some people still have more than others and can tolerate using Lactaid pills found in most pharmacies. Some say it doesn't work for them. It is prevalent in some ethnic groups but anyone can be affected by it.
You just have to see which dairy products you can tolerate without discomfort some people can eat only certain cheese, some can eat ice cream just fine.
