Hi I was lactose intolerant for 3yrs, until my mum passed away and I stayed in her house for a week. The lactose intolerance all but went while we were there. My husband was diabetic so every drink yoghurt etc in our house had artificial sweeteners in it.

If I drink normal coke all day then I can have dairy and I am fine.

If I have diet coke then I am fine until I eat dairy, then the bloating and wind starts and I am running to the toilet. I have Lactase tablets that help a bit if I accidentally have artificial sweetener other than that I always have Imodium in my bag as a last resort.

Is there anyone else out there got the same problem?
