In brief: Low carbs

The hypoglycemia is treated with a six-meal, low carbohydrate diet.
The lactose intolerance is treated by avoiding milk products or using those with no lactose such as lactaid, etc.

In brief: Hypo & lactose free

Eat only meat or fish or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels and then your Insulin levels.
The fats in the meat or fish or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours without raising insulin.
