If you experience nausea, bloating, or diarrhea after enjoying ice cream, milkshake, savory cheese, or chocolate, your body may be lactose intolerant.
Lactose is milk sugar. In the small intestine, fermet lactase breaks down lactose into simpler sugars - glucose and galactose, which are absorbed by the body. If lactase is deficient, undecomposed lactose enters the large intestine, where acids and gases are produced during fermentation. This results in symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Where is Lactose?
Lactose is not just in milk. They are also found in butter, margarine, yoghurts, fermented dairy products, cheese, milk powder. If you suspect lactose intolerance, you should also use bread or other baked goods, chocolate, semi-finished products with caution. Lactose may even be present in some tablets.
How is lactose intolerance treated?
Treatment of lactose intolerance depends on the severity of the symptoms. If you are just bothered by belly gurgling, you should feel better by reducing your dairy intake. However, if it causes a wide variety of discomforts that affect the quality of your life, consult a nutritionist and eat according to diet plan.
