    I have been eating yogurt for about a week...both a soy yogurt and regular milk yogurt. I have started eaching a stomach ache when I eat them now. I can usually quell the discomfort with some calcium antacid pills. But I dont want to be eating yogurt if it is upseting my stomach. But I really like it and want to eat it..esp. in the evenings.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem? Do you know what causes it? How to stop it?

    Thank you, turkish.

    It is funny, cuz when I google yogurt and stomach ache to learn about getting a stomach ache from eating yogurt all the links are about CURING a stomach ache with yogurt!

    Even for a lot of people who are lactose intollerant, natural yogurt is normally fine, as the milk has been heated which causes the large protein molecules breakdown.

    So nope, no idea.

    Maybe you should eat cake instead? Everybody loves cake.

    Well I am lactose intolerant but usually have only mild reaction to yogurt. I take a lactaid tablet with it now just to make sure. I found that certain ones like Activa will give me problems but others will not.

    I recommend checking other ingredients too. I have very bad stomach problems with sucrolose which is in some low cal yogurts.

    No, I am not eating a big dish of it. This is just one of those little cups.

    I dont think I have any lactose problems. I drink a large glass of milk every night and have no problems.

    Bananas stimulate the growth of the mucus lining of the stomach. So I am going to concentrate on eating more bananas for a while to see if will help...can't hurt...hahahahaha

    Well if the soy yogurt is doing it too, it's not lactose.

    It could just be that yogurt (soy and dairy) is acidic, does orange juice upset your stomach too?

    Could it be the active cultures found in yogurt?


    What are live and active cultures?

    Live and active cultures refer to the living organisms Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, which convert pasteurized milk to yogurt during fermentation. All yogurts are required to be made with these two cultures. In addition, some yogurts contain Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus and other cultures. In heat-treated yogurt, these cultures are killed during post-fermentation heating.

    It turned out to be the soy yogurt. I can eat the milk yogurt with no problem.

    That's not surprising. Soy is considered an allergen.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidThat's odd that your body is rejecting soy. But then again it's good to avoid soy. Soy products are not recommended for men. They are phytoestrogens that mimic the female hormone estrogen.

    And with your previous bout with the big C and the type you had it's a very good idea in your case to avoid estrogen. The prostate has estrogen receptor sites that should not be stimulated from an increase in this female hormone.

    Maybe your body was mystically trying to tell you what not to eat through a tummy ache. Amazing. icon_smile.gif



    My body does not like soy, either....and I have milk protein allergy....



    I really don't like being high maintenance....

    Are there any ingredients in the yogurt you could be reacting to? Have you tried an organic one?
