1. Lactose Intolerance Versus Milk Allergy
How to distinguish the two, including a chart.
Lactose Intolerance versus Milk Allergy
More people ask me if Lactose Intolerance (LI) is the same thing as an allergy to milk or dairy products than any other question. They are not the same; they are not even related. Here are the basics on how to tell them apart.
Lactose Intolerance
    People who have LI cannot digest the milk sugar, lactose, because they manufacture too small a quantity of the digestive enzyme, lactase. Too small is a relative term. If you drink only tiny amounts of milk, even a tiny amount of lactase is sufficient. Too much milk (or any dairy product) can overwhelm even a fairly large lactase supply. How much is too much? That depends on a dozen factors, and can be hard to judge, even from meal to meal. Undigested lactose sits in the intestines and does two things, both bad. It draws water into your intestines, producing diarrhea, and it gets fermented by the bacteria in your colon, producing gas. That's why the symptoms of LI include, in addition to gas and diarrhea, flatulence, bloating and cramps. Note that these are all symptoms of the lower intestines. Anyone (except for young children) who gets vomiting, burping, heartburn, or other stomach ills, should look for a difference cause. Food can take 12 hours to two days to completely pass through your intestines. That's why symptoms can last for a long time and that's why it can be hard to pinpoint exactly which foods are bothering you. Symptoms can also start almost immediately after eating dairy. This is not because the dairy has hit your intestines, but because food in the stomach triggers what is called peristalsis in the intestines, the muscle movements that push food through. If you are already suffering from excess gas and water, you can feel the pressures of diarrhea long before any new food has a chance to leave the stomach.

2. Health Issues Concerning Causes, Diagnosis And Treatment Of Lactose Intolerance
Discussion and management of lactose intolerance.
Lactose Intolerance
About the author: Dr . Minocha is a practicing gastroenterologist and author of "Natural Stomach Care: Treating and Preventing Digestive Disorders with Best of Eastern and Western Therapies" L actose intolerance (LI) is a common disorder that affects a quarter of the US population and may affect as many as 75% of the world population. The prevalence varies by race and ethnicity. It is more common among African-Americans, Hispanics and oriental population. In India, for example, it is seen in 25% of north Indian and 70% of south Indian population.
Most common for is the adult-type or primary deficiency where there is usually deficiency of Lactase enzyme activity and not complete absence. Congenital lactase deficiency is rare.
Milk intolerance suggests onset of symptoms after drinking milk and not necessarily lactose intolerance.
Symptoms of Lactose Intolerance include bloating, stomach pains, diarrhea and gassiness. Symptoms may occur in some patients even when their lactase enzyme activity is within normal limits. This may occur in 5% of adults. Thus, some people erroneously think that their symptoms are due to lactase deficiency when that is not true.
Lactose restricted diet may improve symptoms not only in lactase deficient patients but also in irritable bowel syndrome in adults and recurrent abdominal pain in kids.

What is lactose intolerance?
Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest significant amounts of lactose, the predominant sugar of milk. This inability results from a shortage of the enzyme lactase, which is normally produced by the cells that line the small intestine. Lactase breaks down milk sugar into simpler forms that can then be absorbed into the bloodstream. When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, the results, although not usually dangerous, may be very distressing. While not all persons deficient in lactase have symptoms, those who do are considered to be lactose intolerant. The digestive tract Common symptoms include nausea, cramps, bloating, gas, and diarrhea, which begin about 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating or drinking foods containing lactose. The severity of symptoms varies depending on the amount of lactose each individual can tolerate. Some causes of lactose intolerance are well known. For instance, certain digestive diseases and injuries to the small intestine can reduce the amount of enzymes produced. In rare cases, children are born without the ability to produce lactase. For most people, though, lactase deficiency is a condition that develops naturally over time. After about the age of 2 years, the body begins to produce less lactase. However, many people may not experience symptoms until they are much older.

Peer Review Status: Externally Peer Reviewed by Mosby
  • Lactose intolerance is an unpleasant reaction to lactose ingestion caused by a deficiency of lactase, a disaccharidase responsible for hydrolyzing lactose into glucose and galactose. Lactose intolerance is the most prevalent genetic deficiency worldwide, affecting Asians, persons from the Mediterranean, African-Americans, native Americans, and Mexicans.
  • Types of Lactase Deficiency
  • Late-onset or acquired . Adult lactase deficiency is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Onset most common in adolescence and early adulthood. Symptom severity depends on intestinal lactase activity and the size of the lactose load. Secondary Congenital (alactasia) . This condition is extremely rare and is the result of complete absence of lactase expression because of a genetic defect. Symptoms
  • Include abdominal distention and pain, gaseous bloating, borborygmi, flatulence and diarrhea resulting from increased distension and decreased transit time of lactulose in the small bowel, and production SCFAs and gases in the colon.

    Lactose Intolerance
    How prevalent is Lactose Intolerance? About 70% of the world's population just can't drink milk or eat dairy products (except yogurt) without getting an upset stomach. Lactose Intolerance is genetic and happens most often in people of African, Asian and Mediterranean descent. Lactose Intolerance is caused by a deficiency of lactase, an enzyme needed to absorb and digest milk sugar i.e. lactose. Undigested lactose lingers in the colon and ferments, creating intestinal distress - abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea - that sometimes defies diagnosis or is misdiagnosed as serious bowel disease. So don't believe you have a serious bowel disorder until you are sure milk is not at fault. Read Inflammatory Bowel Disease IBD Diet for Crohn's and Colitis How much upset milk can cause depends on the severity of your lactase deficiency. From 60 to 80 percent of those with lactose intolerance can still drink a single glass of milk without distress and about half can drink two glasses of milk, says note researcher Dr. Dennis Savaiano of the University of Minnesota. One study found that normal people absorbed 92% of lactose from milk; those with lactose intolerance absorbed only 25% to 58%.
    Lactose Intolerance: The Yogurt Salvation
    Yogurt is safe because it comes predigested. In one of nature's small miracles, the bacteria in yogurt take over for the missing enzyme and digest much of the milk sugar for you. According to tests by Dr. Savaiano, two bacterial cultures, Streptococcus thermophilus and especially Lactobacillus bulgaricus, that transform milk into yogurt gobble up much of milk's lactose during fermentation, and once in the intestine eat much of the remaining lactose. Be sure the yogurt has live bacterial cultures, as nearly all commercial yogurts do; killed bacteria do not work. Plain yogurts have more anti-lactose activity than flavored yogurts. Buttermilk and acidophilus milk, although fermented, still cause as much distress in most people as plain milk.
