  • Lactose, a sugar naturally found in dairy foods, may make diarrhea, gas and bloating worse.
  • Limit the amount of dairy you eat by including milk alternative such as oat, almond or soy milk. Enjoy low-fat yogurt, aged and hard cheeses since they have less lactose.
  • Record your food and drink intake to learn what makes your side effects worse. Track how you feel and avoid this food or drink for a few days. You can slowly add a small portion back into your diet. 
  • Sometime dried fruit can make diarrhea worse. If this is the case with you, substitute the dates in this recipe with maple syrup.
