19 Nov Lactose Intolerance

The attached published paper is an excellent review of the mechanism that causes lactose intolerance and the strategies that can be used to manage the problem. This article concurs with the previously reported success in using the FODMAP diets but also warns that these diets can have unintended health effects. For example, the article points out that there is a significant decrease in the concentration of probiotic bifidobacteria after four weeks of a low FODMAP diet and lactose free diets often result in calcium deficiency.
