Why is Testing for Lactose Intolerance Important?

Lactose intolerance affects an estimated 50 million Americans. This condition is common in Asian, African, African-American, Native American, and Mediterranean populations.

Studies have shown that nearly 50% of people who self-report milk intolerance are normal digesters of lactose. Instead, they suffer from a functional bowel disorder such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) in children or some other gastrointestinal complication. Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) occurs in 10 to 15% of school-age children. In self-reported milk intolerants, there is a significant, unnecessary reduction in milk consumption and insufficient dietary calcium intake.

The diagnosis of lactose intolerance by trained professional has relied on an interview process coupled with removing milk (and milk products) from the diet. The interview process is overly simplistic and quite imprecise.

Do You Have Lactose Intolerance?

We may be able to eat as much dairy as we want when we are young. Our bodies can lose the ability to process sugars in foods we consume. Dairy contains a sugar called lactose or milk sugar. Our intestines have an enzyme called lactase that breaks down lactose prior to absorption. Sometimes we are born with low levels of the enzyme lactase or we produce less of it as we age. When lactose is not broken down from eating foods with dairy, it will cause gas, bloating, chronic stomach pain, or diarrhea.

Do you have the following symptoms or risk factors?

  • Gas, bloating, or abdominal pain after immediately eating milk, cheese, or foods with dairy
  • You are African-American, Asian, South American or American Indian descent
  • Age greater than 50

Many foods we eat contain lactose. Review our list of foods containing lactose. We obtain lactose from more than milk. If you have these symptoms or risk factors, you should test for lactose intolerance with the Gut-Chek Hydrogen Breath Test for Lactose Intolerance.
