In brief: Wait for test result
It can be frustrating if you are determined to be lactose intolerant.
..But today there are many pills (founf over the counter in drug store or many markets) you can take before eating dairy to prevent most symptoms(as long as you don't go overboard) and there are many tasty lactaid products...Milk..Cheeses ice cream..Just check out your local supermarket.
