|Lactic Acid produced from Lactose?
Jan 21, 2002
I am now hesitant to start taking a whey protein supplement because I have a fear that there may be some relationship between the lactate contained in milk products and the lactate levels in the blood. Are there simply two different definitions for the words "lactate", "lactic", and "lactose" or is there actually some relationship? Is it possible that drinking milk proteins can contribute to hyperlactatemia and/or lactic acidosis?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Good question. However lactose is a sugar found in milk and no relationship to lactic acid or serum lactate. The only thing that lactose might do is give you diarrhea.! It should not be a problem as long as you are not lactose intolerant. Good luck! DTD
