I've heard yogurt can actually help with lactose intollerance symptoms, is this true or not?

Yogurt lactose: This may be true. If the yogurt has active cultures in it, they can break down the lactose. Wikipedia has a good discussion on this with references for you to read. So does the Cleveland Clinic. Since the amount of active lactobacilli in brands of yogurt is often not mentioned, it is important to try small amounts first. This may only help with tolerance of other dairy products consumed with it. ...Read more

Lab Tests or Symptom: Your child's doctor can run lactose-intolerance tests. However, the easiest way may be to remove lactose-containing foods/beverages from the child's diet and see if their symptoms improve. I'm afraid all cheeses and yogurts contain lactose.

Amount of lactose: Assuming the cream is not heavy cream, the amount of lactose (milk sugar) in the yogurt is likely significantly less than in the foods that cause you problems. Heavy cream is mostly milk fat, so if you can tolerate yogurt, intolerance of heavy cream would be more likely a fat intolerance. ...Read more
