Lactose Intolerance Diet Plan

Lactose is the sugar found in milk. In India, nearly 60-70 per cent of people are lactose intolerant. In North Europe, the prevalence of lactose intolerance is as less as 10 per cent while in parts of Asia and Africa; it is as high as 95 per cent. In the global population, lactose intolerance is found in 65 per cent of the population.

Differences between Lactose Intolerance and Milk Allergy

Lactose intolerance is different from milk allergy. In milk allergy, the body is intolerant to milk proteins and not to milk sugar. The person who is lactose must avoid milk and different dairy products. It includes different symptoms like abdominal cramps, diarrhea and bloating.

People not having lactose intolerance do not make enzyme lactase needed to digest lactose into galactose and glucose. Without sufficient amount of lactase, the undigested lactose remains undigested and gets fermented by gut bacteria leading to bloating and digestive symptoms. Lactase production gets impaired with age. Thus, lactose intolerance is most commonly found in the older population.

The secondary symptoms of lactose intolerance include bloating, gas, abdominal cramps and gas. Few people experience an urgency to go to the toilet, nausea, constipation and pain in the belly. The symptoms range from a severe reaction to mild discomfort based on the amount of lactase deficiency is present. In severe cases, dehydration may occur.

Foods To Avoid In Lactose Intolerance

Not only do milk and milk products contain lactose, but the processed dairy products also have lactose in them. Common foods which have lactose include custards, creams, biscuits, badam milk, milk chocolate, scrambled eggs, cheese sauce, cream sauce and anything that contains dairy.
