General Lactose Intolerance Information
Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest milk sugar (lactose) because of a lack of a lactase enzyme in the small intestine. Without the proper amount of lactase enzyme, dairy products are not fully digested, resulting in fluid retention and fermentation on the colon. It is estimated that 40 million people in the United States are lactose intolerant. It is more common in adults than in children or infants. This should not be confused with a milk allergy which is an immune system reaction to milk products.

Possible Causes of Lactose Intolerance
Some degree of lactose intolerance varies from person to person. Lactose intolerance is a normal condition for all individual, but Caucasians of northern European origin are most likely retain the ability to digest lactose after childhood. Lactose intolerance may also be caused by other digestive or gastrointestinal problems that may damage the intestinal tract or the intestinal lining, such as celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, regional enteritis or ulcerative colitis.

Possible Symptoms of Lactose Intolerance
In adults, lactose intolerance usually results in cramps, bloating, diarrhea and gas within 30 minutes to two hours after consuming dairy products. In infants and small children, lactose intolerance may cause foamy diarrhea, diaper rash, slow weight gain, delayed development and vomiting. Symptoms may be worse when lactose products are consumed on an empty stomach. Breath tests indicating a higher level of hydrogen in the blood stream and glucose measurement tests may be used to properly diagnose lactose intolerance.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Lactose Intolerance
Avoid milk and all dairy products except yogurt. Substitute soy milk or rice milk for regular milk. Soy cheese and other non-dairy cheeses can be eaten instead of regular cheese. Some hard-aged cheeses are lower in lactose and may be easier to tolerate. Ice cream is especially difficult to tolerate as many brands add extra lactose to improve texture. Yogurt with live active cultures assists in the digestion of lactose and in overall digestion. Foods high in calcium may be beneficial for those who do not obtain calcium through dairy products. Those foods include apricots, broccoli, collard greens, figs, kale, rhubarb, salmon, sardines, spinach, tofu and yogurt. Do not take medications that use lactose as a filler, including some birth control pills and stomach medications. Drink plenty of water to assist in flushing the intestinal tract. Women who have a family history of lactose intolerance should consider breast feeding or using soy-based baby formula for a newborn.

Beneficial Dietary Supplements
Non-dairy Acidophilus is used to replace friendly bacteria in the digestive tract that promotes healthy digestion.

Charcoal Tablets reduce the symptoms of gas and diarrhea caused by an attack by absorbing toxins produced by lactose fermentation.

Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc are important nutrients usually lacking in those with lactose intolerance. Combined, these supplements support calcium uptake, ph balance and mineral balance.

Vitamin D is important for calcium uptake.

Vitamin E helps protect the lining of the intestinal tract.

Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement helps insure proper nutrition and optimal health.
