What is Lactose Intolerance?
Lactose intolerance is the inability to fully digest the lactose (sugar) in milk. This inability results in many harmless, but uncomfortable issues such as diarrhoea, gas, abdominal cramps, nausea and bloating. There are many factors which can increase your risk of being intolerant to lactose such as ethnicity (common in African, Asian, Hispanic and American Indian descent), premature birth and certain cancer treatments. Generally people with lactose intolerance do not have to avoid dairy altogether. Eating small servings of dairy and consuming it with meals minimises the symptoms of lactose intolerance.
