A 47-year-old male asked:
is there such a thing as being borderline lactose intolerant?

Yes: Deficiency of the enzyme lactase which is the cause of lactose intolerance occurs in variable degrees which therefore results in a spectrum of symptoms from minor to severe when exposed to lactose. "borderline" lactose intolerance would suggest minor symptoms in response to lactose ingestion.
