AAS inducing food allergies?
Do you guys ever notice when cycling AS you become more (so to speak) lactose intolerant? Doesn't even have to be primarily that but any food allergy that becomes apparentto you when on a cycle?
I ask because I typically drink a 3/4-1 gallon of skim milk a day. I'm always able to deal pretty well with it when I'm not saucin it up. Digestive wise, physique wise, etc.. When on I feel the common symptoms associatted with LI sufferers. Bloats me up, takes ULTRA-long time to totally digest. Normally I can drink a gal or so split up with my meals every 3 hours, no build-up, now def build-up.
What about everyone else, exp LI symptoms, or any other food allergy symptoms while on?

More of a protein/whey overload in my case. My milk intake doesn't change but my over all protein (powder, eggs etc) increases and causes me digestive issues. So in my case it isn't the 'cycle' that does it but my eating while on cycle that does.

Yeah, know what ya mean. With myself, I don't even get the chance to increase anything, I'll actually have to DE-crease milk and protein but still keep gaining?? I still try to make up for loss of powder and milk by eating more chicken/steak, etc. but that at times still binds me up. Never understood it. Sometimes I actually can't wait to go off so I can have a better time digesting my food... crazy, I know.

For what it is worth, Lactose Intolerance is not a food allergy but a lack/low levels of an enzyme (lactase). Considering that humans are pretty much the only animal that continues to drink milk post-weaning it is not too suprising. Food allergy are an immunological response to a protein.
Nevertheless, I also have GI issues when "on". Possibly due to bile flow, inflammation response, or altered motility.

They effect bile flow, cholestasis is a common symptom which can alter digestion and cause malabsorption.
As for OTC, I personally like Pro-Liver from Primaforce. It appears to improve any GI disturbances I get from oral AAS. Stool has an odd smell to it but I do have good formed BM's while taking.
