Can People With Lactose Intolerance Eat Yogurt

However, lactose intolerant people can eat yogurt with no problems. ...Read more

A forever problem: Lactose intolerance is genetically based (please see my earlier answer), & is "forever." of course, some people with the condition have higher threshold for tolerating at least a certain amount of lactose.

Minimize lactose-containing foods unless lactase is taken. ...Read more
The basics: Lactose intolerance is basically a transient or permanent loss of the ability to digest/absorb lactose sugar.

This makes you gassy & cramp. Avoid ingesting lactose and you avoid symptoms. ...Read more
