Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

It seems that you are allergic to some food substances like lactose and maltose. These sugars will be acted on by the bacteria and cause flatulence and stomach problems. You should avoid taking products made with milk and barley to avoid getting gastric troubles.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
