The lactose intolerance is a form of food intolerance.

People with a lactose intolerance do not transfer milk and dairy products or transfer them badly. The reason – fermental insufficiency. The most common symptoms of a lactose intolerance are abdominal distention, spasms in a stomach and diarrhea.

Lactose intolerance symptoms

1. At inability of an organism to digest milk sugar there are following symptoms:
2. Abdominal distention.
3. Feeling of satiety.
4. Loud rumbling, gurgle in a stomach.
5. Abdominal pain.
8. Nausea seldom with vomiting.
7. Diarrhea.

Abdominal distention and pain are caused by the gases produced by bacteria of a large intestine when splitting undigested lactose. Milk and fatty acids have "water-absorbing" effect. It leads to hit of bigger amount of liquid in intestines and to developing of diarrhea. The lactose intolerance can be shown not only in a GIT. In addition to problems with digestive tract, at a lactose intolerance there can also be following symptoms:

If you want to enjoy a piece of cream cake or milk ice cream, you can take the drug containing enzyme lactase in advance.

Lactose intolerance: diet

If you have a lactose intolerance, it is important to adapt the diet so that symptoms did not arise or decreased. The organism should give so much milk sugar how many it can transfer. Each person has the standard of tolerance of lactose. Some people with a lactose intolerance should avoid its use strictly. But many can use at least a small amount of lactose. The secondary lactose intolerance can be eliminated completely if successfully to cure a basic disease.
