I love cheese. I do. Except, when I eat cheese, I get digestive problems.<br><br>
I don't have this problem with other milk products (ice cream, milk, yogurt... and feta cheese) except before I work out. Cottage cheese sometimes in this category, sometimes not.<br><br>
But whenever I eat what people think of when they think of cheese, whether it's swiss, american, chedder, brie... that stuff they serve in Mexican restaurants especially...<br><br>
It gets worse and more cheeses get moved into the latter (always giving me digestive problems) as I get older... and the ones that have always given me digestive problems like brie and whatever that white cheese is in the restaurants... they actually make me sick.<br><br>
Why????? <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I don't have any info for you, but I hope someone else does. I <i>think</i> intolerance to lactose increases as one ages, but I don't know that. I just think I read it somewhere.

There are varying amounts of lactose in different types of cheeses. However, if you had a problem with lactose, milk would bother you the most, because it is much, much higher in lactose than cheese. Therefore, I tend to believe your problem isnt with lactose...but I don't know what it could be since cheeses dont tend to have tons of "extra" ingredients.
