Am I lactose intolerant?!!?

Yesterday I drank about 3/4 cup of a vanilla milkshake and Like 2 hours after I woke up I had gas and diarrhea. Was this caused by the milkshake. If so how come it doesn’t happen when I eat pizza?


This has happened before with just milk but not too many times.

    It's all about the quantity of lactose you consume at a sitting. You can digest some lactose - that level varies from person to person. Cheese contains only small amounts of lactose and the amount of cheese in a pizza is much less that the amount of milk in a milkshake.

      Thanks for the answer and I guess it makes sense considering I drank that milkshake like 2 hours before going to sleep lol.
