Lactose Free Diet
Lactose intolerance is easy to treat. No treatment can improve the body’s ability to produce lactose, but symptoms can be controlled through diet. Lactose-reduced milk and other products are available at most supermarkets. The milk contains all of the nutrients found in regular milk and remains fresh for about the same length of time, or longer if it is super-pasteurized.

High Fiber Diet
Fiber is a general term for the material in plants which is not digested. It provides bulk needed for normal elimination of solid wastes. In addition, it absorbs water and makes the stool softer and easier to eliminate. In refined grains most of the fiber is removed by milling; some fiber is removed from fruits and vegetables by peeling. Whole grains are the major source of fiber. Some legumes, fruits and vegetables also contain fiber. Eating seeds and skins contributes a significant amount of fiber.

Gluten Free Diet
Gluten is the protein part of wheat, rye, barley, and other related grains. Some people cannot tolerate gluten when it comes in contact with the small intestine. This condition is known as celiac disease (sometimes called non-tropical sprue or gluten sensitive enteropathy). There is also evidence that a skin disorder called dermatitis herpetiformis is associated with gluten intolerance.
