If you have a true allergy to dairy whether its casein, lactose, or whey, obviously ingesting it could be fatal.

It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?

Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.

I've only recently healed my leaky gut but I still suffer from constipation sometimes with dairy. However, I can't seem to pinpoint if the culprit is the lactose or the whey protein. Any suggestions on how to find out for sure?

Does lactose work well to replenish glycogen store after a workout? How does the body use this sugar?

Unless you are lactose intolerent, it gets metabolised into glucose and galactose, both of which can replenish your glycogen stores.
