How do I know if Im lactose intolerant ?

If you get indigestion from consuming milk products, you're lactose intolerant. However, the grocery stores often carry lactose-free milk and ice cream. Just ask the staff where to find it.

Get yourself a small quantity of pure lactose from the health food store and eat half a teaspoon of it and if you get gassy and feel bloated within half an hour after eating it you can pretty much assume that you're lactose intolerant

Ultimately, you get tested by a doctor. Generally, if you have GI tract symptoms (cramping, gas, bloating, diarrhea, etc.) after eating dairy products, that a good indication, but there are blood and breath tests that can confirm this. You may also be sensitive or allergic to Casein A -- protein found in most cow's milk.
Lactose intolerance is the absence of an enzyme that allows your body to digest lactose -- a sugar in milk and dairy products. A casein allergy involves your immune system and symptoms can include itching, difficulty breathing, and hives. Casein is a protein to which some people have an allergy.
