It's an acronym and oh... my memory is shot. Sorry. I'll come back later when I can think of it. But first I'd figure out if I was lactose intolerant or milk intolerant, because they're two different things.
I don't actually know if it is lactose intolerance or casein intolerance or some other milk intolerance. Its my fdh. He can eat butter, and tiny amounts of certain hard cheeses without feeling sick. Anything more (such as pizza) gives him a stomach ache and digestion issues (constipation or the runs, I don't know, he is embarrassed talking about it). Of course, he likes eating dairy and does so often.
Between the ease of being able to eat dairy, the fact that he likes it and the fact that my cooking is very heavy on the dairy (though mostly butter, (ok, and a lot of cream and cheese), it would be so great for him to be able to eat it again. If he can't, he can't, and I can accept that and change my cooking, but I'm not resigned to no more cream sauce yet lol, since he hasn't tried anything to heal it, and his diet has been moderately decent in terms of healthy, but gut flora health poor his whole life. (Its something I'm working on for me, and just starting to, improving my gut flora, so he'll likely at the very least catch some good effects from it. plus, from a flavor standpoint, the man would be delighted if I served homemade kraut and kimchee with every meal, which makes it easier.)

How though? I mean, general good gut bacteria increase, or any specifics? sort of a general healing the gut thing, or something specific?
