The inability of the body to digest the sugar lactose, in milk and dairy products is termed as the lactose intolerance. Th symptoms produced in response to the intolerance are that of bloating, Stomach Cramps and pain, Stomach rumbling, flatulence, diarrhoea and nausea. Symptoms usually develop within a few hours of consuming. The severity of the disease depends on the amount of lactose consumed and also the symptoms mimic that of the other gastrointestinal problems, so it is important to speak with your doctors regarding your concerns before taking off milk and dairy products from your daily menu.
People with lactose intolerance don’t produce enough lactase, so lactose stays in the digestive system where it is fermented by the bacteria leading to the production of various gases which causes the symptoms associated with the lactose intolerance.
Being lactose intolerant does not mean that you have to give up your dairy all together. Even the thought of adding milk to Cereals, tea or coffee could make you sick if you are afraid of being lactose intolerant.
