Lactose intolerance happens when our body doesn’t make enough of the enzyme lactase which digests lactose. Lactose is present in dairy products and hence the
-first step to take is to decrease our intake of dairy products and increase our intake of curd and other products rich in active cultures.
-Invariably people tolerate small amounts of lactose so maintain a food dairy to find your optimum limit
.- Include lactose free milk like soy , almond or rice to replace some or all of the milk.
– Include lactose supplements with dairy products to minimise the effects of the intolerance.
-When u eat less dairy you may need supplementation for calcium and vitamin D.-Do include calcium rich foods like kale, broccoli, fish with edible bones , almonds etc.
Lactose intolerance is very common and some small changes can ensure a life without the uncomfortable symptoms.
