@Slorrin made a post that finally got something through my thick skull. I have been having on and off digestive issues involving severe abdominal pain. People Chow contains a bit of whey powder, even the Mega Men Sport has whey in it. I am lactose intolerant.
Not severely to the point that any lactose makes me ill. I can eat dairy sparingly. I cannot drink milk directly, and I can eat ice cream only in small quantities. But cheese is normally fine, since it is mixed in with other food. These recent issues often occur when I consume DIY during the day, and have alcohol in the evening. Not necessarily being drunk, even two beers will do it: a small buzz for a man my size.
Anyone else around here lactose intolerant and been having problems with DIY recipes using whey powder?
In case anyone is curious, yes, I have an appointment to see a gastroenterologist.
