Have you been tested for lactose intolerance? I've found that just because you cannot process dairy well, does not necessarily mean you have problems with lactose sugar.Which means something that breaks down lactose sugar wouldn't necessarily help at all. There are lots of probiotic formulations that specifically have no dairy, or very miniscule amounts used to culture the probiotics.Culturelle seems pretty decent to me, but I can't say it's had any drastic effect, but of the many, many probiotics I've taken, it's the one I think that probably has the most benefit.If I remember correctly, it is cultured on whey, but it doesn't bother me. I've had a lactose sugar test, and it was fine, but still can't touch most dairy. I think there must be something else to it beyond lactose intolerance.
