13. How is lactose intolerance different from a milk allergy?

Lactose is the main sugar found in milk. Lactose intolerance means that your body can’t digest it well leading to several symptoms like colic, flatulence and diarrhea. It is not a serious condition and always relates to the amount of lactose ingested, while a milk allergy is a reaction by the body's immune system to one or more milk proteins and can be life-threatening when just a small amount of milk or milk product is consumed.

Some symptoms of milk allergy can be similar to lactose intolerance symptoms (i.e. gas, bloating, abdominal pain), however lactose intolerance is not a milk allergy.

Moreover, a milk allergy most commonly occurs in the first year of life, while lactose intolerance occurs more often during adolescence or adulthood. That’s why these are two completely difference conditions.

14. What is lactose intolerance?

Lactose is a sugar found in milk and milk products. The small intestine – the organ where most food digestion and nutrition absorption take place – produces an enzyme called lactase. Lactase breaks down lactose into two simpler forms of sugar; glucose and galactose. The body then absorbs these simpler sugars into the bloodstream. Lactose intolerance is a condition in which people have digestive symptoms – such as bloating, diarrhea, and gas – after eating or drinking milk or milk products.

Lactose intolerance is the inability or insufficient ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. People with lactose intolerance may experience abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, gas, diarrhea, and nausea after consuming products containing lactose.

Most people with lactose intolerance can tolerate some amount of lactose in their diet. Gradually introducing small amounts of milk or milk products may help some people adapt to them with fewer symptoms. In children, the complete absence of the lactase enzyme is extremely rare, but it frequently occurs after attacks of gastroenteritis due to transient deficiency of the lactase enzyme for up to 2 weeks.
