User :   Is it okay to consume dairy products once again, like yogurt, or cheese?
Doctor :   Be regular with it, you should be doing better from now.
Doctor :   If you are allergic to lactose, then you will have to restrict the dairy products.

Doctor :   If there are no allergic factors, then there are no restrictions to it.
User :   Yeah, i am not allergic, but i take these lactose pills that digest the lactaid in the dairy, which i have no problem after i take it.
User :   but thank you doctor for all your help.
Doctor :   You are welcome.
