Lactose Intolerant Question


If you are lactose intolerant, does that mean you don't absorb milk protein?

Lactose is a sugar if I'm not mistaken. So milk's carbohydrates will not be digested but what about the protein and fat content?

I am not severely lactose intolerant. However, it does give me diahrrea after consuming my whey protein shake post-workout.
