Lactose Intolerance

What is lactose intolerance?

Lactose intolerance is a condition where a person's body is unable to fully digest lactose, a type of sugar found in dairy products. This can lead to discomfort and digestive issues.

How do I know I’m lactose intolerant?

Common symptoms of lactose intolerance include abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhoea after consuming dairy products.

Lactose intolerance can be diagnosed through diet elimination, blood tests and hydrogen breath tests. If you suspect you may be lactose intolerant, it is best to consult with a doctor.

What’s the difference between lactose intolerance and a dairy allergy?

Lactose intolerance is a digestive issue while a dairy allergy is an immune system reaction to dairy products. The symptoms of lactose intolerance and a dairy allergy can be similar, but a dairy allergy can cause more severe reactions.
