Lactose Intolerance

PRINT PAGE

Lactose intolerance is a deficiency of the digestive enzyme lactase. Lactase is the main enzyme required to break down dairy products. The onset of this enzyme deficiency usually occurs between the ages of three and seven.

Undigested dairy can nourish bacteria in the colon. These bacteria release toxins such as alcohol, ammonia, acetaldehyde, and formaldehyde, which are the probable cause of symptoms of lactose intolerance. Common symptoms include:

  • painful gas
  • bloating
  • diarrhea

Lactose intolerance is common worldwide, and many sufferers avoid dairy products altogether. This can be difficult, as dairy is an ingredient added to many foods.
