Lactose intolerance - Better Health Channel -open

Lactose intolerance is when a person has difficulty or is unable to digest milk sugars from dairy products. It is rare for Caucasians to develop lactose intolerance. The condition is more common among Australian Aborigines and people from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and some Mediterranean countries. Symptoms include bloating, gas, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Many babies are wrongly assumed to have lactose intolerance.
