About lactose intolerance, I.B.S. & milk allergies
Can LACTAID® Products help you with dairy sensitivity? If you have lactose intolerance, the answer is yes! But you may not be sure what’s causing your sensitivity. Is it lactose intolerance, milk allergies or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)? Here´s a brief overview on all three conditions:
Lactose intolerance: A deficiency of a natural enzyme called lactase in the body which can cause symptoms of gas, bloating and diarrhea when foods with lactose are eaten. Lactase is needed to fully digest lactose, a sugar found mainly in dairy products.
IBS: An intestinal disorder that causes abdominal discomfort and symptoms like diarrhea and constipation. The exact cause of IBS is unknown.
Milk allergies: When the immune system doesn´t recognize one or more proteins in dairy products—most commonly whey and casein—as being harmless.
LACTAID® Products help people with lactose intolerance be able to digest and enjoy dairy. But as with any medical diagnosis, you should talk to your doctor.
