Dealing with lactose intolerance can be easy 

If your body doesn’t like lactose, don’t stress – treatment is simply a matter of managing your symptoms. It’s easy to do once you know more about it. Here’s how:

Dealing with Lactose Intolerance

1. Learn which foods might be causing you discomfort

Our chart shows you how much lactose is in your favorite dairy treats so that you can find out where that tummy trouble might be coming from.

2. Keep track of how much lactose you’re eating

Some people with lactose intolerance can eat a little bit of dairy — especially when it’s combined with other foods. Jot down notes when you eat dairy products — how much, what kind, and with what else — to help you determine how tolerant your body is.

4. Use lactase supplements to stop dairy discomfort before it starts 

Lactase supplements provide that important enzyme you need to digest the lactose in dairy. Simply take a LACTAID® supplement along with the first bite or sip of food; if the meal lasts longer than 45 minutes, take another. It's the perfect treatment while you're on the go!*

5. Mention it to your healthcare provider
