Other sugars: Look in the store. But mainly would not worry about it. Better things to worry about. IMHO

Yes: Honestly stay away from juice. Let your child eat a piece of fruit and drink a glass of water rather than having the fruit juice. Your child will get all the fiber and vitamins and benefits of the fruit that way. Fruit juice offers very little.

Can you still be lactose intolerant even though the IgE allergy test claims no allergy?

Yes: Lactose intolerance is due to the lack of lactase in the GI tract. This is te enzyme tht digests lactose. Without it a person gets gas, cramping and diarrhea despite not having any allergy. Bacteria in the colon cause the gas and the sugar(lactose) acts as a laxative.
