Lactose intolerance and Acne

6 posts in this topic

It seems there is a consensus that dairy and wheat is bad for acne.

Could this be related to lactose intolerance?

I've been reading that if the lactose is not digested (through a absense of lactAse) it just lingers in the gut. This could then be linked to a higher toxicity in the system than results in a higher likelihood of acne.

I'm not too sure about it all, but it's an interesting point.

Any thoughts?

I'm starting to think I am.

I get a lot of gas, and my gut is bloated even though I really dont drink alcohol or eat fatty foods.

And I generally feel sluggish when I eat wheat or diary.

I going to go to a doctor or dietician to find out soon(ish).

I wonder if I am lactose intolerant as well. When I used to eat dairy products it would stay in my system for days. And then it would just all come out.
