Iam lac­tose in­tol­er­ant and get se­vere bloat­ing when I eat or drink dairy prod­ucts. But as a wo­man, I also worry about not get­ting enough cal­cium and frankly hate swal­low­ing pills. What else can I do?

Lac­tose in­tol­er­ance does not pre­vent you from hav­ing curd, but­ter­milk and split milk prod­ucts. You can con­sume them. If your cal­cium and vi­ta­min D lev­els are low, take gran­ules of vi­ta­min D and cal­cium, avail­able in the form of liq­uid and also small tablets.

Dr Deepak N Amara­purkar, Gas­troen­terol­o­gist
