No ...no adverse effect to your immune system...
Not either antistamine nor probiotic...nor either one alone or both together would impair your immune system....
I hope that this is helpful for you
Spikes in head?
Do you mean headaches ?
You might have some issue with reflux perhaps ...this is at times associated with headaches...
Yogurt may have an acid neutralizing effect to benefit you...
Glucose intolerance ? Where do you get that idea from?
Glucose intolerance is a condition of being PREDIABETIC.. It has to do with poor uptake of glucose into cells and at times may be associated with a lagging release of insulin. It typically has more to do with deficiency of insulin receptors of the cells of the body..
This would not be caused by GI tract flora...
It seems some mix up here in our terminology perhaps...
I think that you may get headaches due to reflux as that is a common connection.. the yogurt may help you to feel better as it would help neutralize acid. You might also try an antacid such as Mylanta to see if that also may help to calm the symptoms in a short period of time..
meanwhile I suggest that you refrain from eating foods or drink that are irritants to the GI tract... hot spicy foods/acidic foods/ alcoholic drinks/ coffee/ tomato products/ onions/peppers/ citrus fruits such as orange juice/ anti-inflammatory meds such as aspirin, Aleve, Advil ( Tylenol is OK though )
Perhaps you are talking about lactose intolerance, which is someone who lacks an enzyme to digest lactose. It causes digestive upset when someone drinks milk or other lactose-containing products. Sometimes such people can digest yogurt though.
Glucose intolerance on the other hand is a problem with digesting glucose, and is one step in the diagnosis of diabetes. Some people call it pre-diabetes. For this diagnosis you would need to see a medical provider for testing.
I'm not sure what you mean by spikes in your head. Do you mean quick pains?
Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Yoghurt contains probiotics similar to those found in capsule/powder form.There is a Glucose Tolerance Test(GTT) available at any pathology lab which can help you get assessed for glucose intolerance.As for the spikes in the head,this has often been seen with increased stress and anxiety levels ,medication ,thyroid disease and rarely with neurological disorders.It would be best to discuss the matter with your PCP,request him for a GTT,get a thorough physical and neurological examination .Further investigations based on the findings can help identify the exact cause of your symptoms and specific therapy needed .
