Stomach Ache After Drinking Milk?
I drink milk powder (for example: prenagen, dancow), it doesn’t take long to get mules and fart, and the smell doesn’t taste good, and sometimes it gets diarrhea several times. But that’s only milk powder. So far, if I drink UHT milk, or drinks and foods that contain milk, it doesn’t work. Why is that? I often have a difficult chapter, if I drink yakult, is it okay with the conditions as I explained earlier? I am afraid that the chapter will be difficult. Thank you
The presence of mules, farting easily, and sometimes diarrhea after drinking milk, can be caused by lactose intolerance where the person does not produce enough lactase enzymes so that the lactose contained in milk is not digested properly. This can cause various symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, bloating, discomfort in the stomach, mules, and sometimes constipation. Everyone's lactase levels are different, so there are people who drink even a little milk, symptoms appear, there are also those whose lactase levels decrease only after experiencing certain disease conditions.
But besides being due to lactose intolerance, your complaint can also be caused by several other conditions such as cow's milk allergy, sensitivity to beta casein A1 protein, irritable bowel syndrome, and infections of the digestive tract.
To ensure your condition, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done. To help prevent complaints, you can avoid consuming milk that triggers complaints, make sure the water used is boiled water and the glass used is washed clean.
Meanwhile related to difficult bowel movements, it can be influenced by lack of fluid intake, lack of fiber, lack of exercise, being stressed and anxious, often holding bowel movements, uncomfortable when using the toilet, side effects of some medications, irritable bowel syndrome, intestinal inflammation, and lactose intolerance.
To help make the CHAPTER smoother, you can do the following tips:
Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables
Drink 2-3 liters of water / day
Do not often hold BAB
Use a squat toilet or if you use the toilet seat, prop your feet on a small bench so that the feet position like squatting (not riding the toilet, yes)
Try not to push during bowel movements
Hope it helps you,
