  • Symptoms of lactose intolerance
    15 20 minutes after food containing lactose has been eaten or it can be several hours later or even the following day Depending on the quantity of lactose ingested and the severity of the intolerance the effects may last up to several days Besides these specific symptoms associated with lactose intolerance the specialized literature also mentions many other effects that are seen by patients to have their origin with the lactose These include chronic fatigue depressive mood painful limbs dizziness headache difficulty to concentrate and eczema The appearance and importance of symptoms depends on a range of factors The degree of intolerance which differs from person to person depending on how little lactase is produced is clearly of primary importance The quantity of foodstuff already in the digestive system and the form in which the lactose was ingested will also influence the appearance and strength of any gastro intestinal reaction Lactose is generally better tolerated when it is absorbed together with other foods The composition of the intestinal flora and the physical and psychological state of the person may all have an influence on the strength of the reaction Subscribe today Subscribe to our electronic newsletter to be kept up

  • Diagnosing lactose intolerance
    grams of lactose in solution The lactose that is not digested in the small intestine is metabolized through the action of bacteria and in the process produces a large amount of gas by fermentation These bacteria are found in the large intestine which follows the small intestine One of the gases produced is hydrogen The hydrogen then gets absorbed into the blood stream and returns to the lungs from where it is exhaled together with the air The more hydrogen is found in the expired air the less effective is the digestion of lactose in the small intestine indicating a reduced capacity of the body to produce lactase the enzyme that is needed for the digestion of lactose Lactose tolerance test The lactose tolerance test involves the measurement of the level of glucose in the blood following the ingestion of a given quantity of lactose At this point it is useful to remind ourselves that the lactase breaks up the lactose into glucose and galactose and the latter in turn transforms into glucose The glucose then enters the blood stream with the effect that the blood sugar level of the patient increases In case of less then perfect digestion of the lactose the blood sugar level rises only moderately or indeed not at all These last two tests are not recommended for very young children because such a large amount of lactose can induce a severe diarrhea and a consequent high risk of dehydration Dehydration of course constitutes a much greater danger to small children than to adults The genetic test GenoType LCT This gene test which has only recently become available has obvious advantageous over the breath hydrogen test and the lactose tolerance test Indeed the GenoType LCT test is a sure means for detecting primary lactose intolerance There

  • The causes of lactose intolerance
    the intestine of the embryo incrases during the gestation period It reaches its maximum during the final third of the pregnancy and at birth This production of lactase allows the baby to hydrolyze the lactose contained in the mother s milk 70g l in human milk 45g l in cow s milk or the baby formula When breast feeding is stopped the production of lactase diminishes progressively in many populations It stabilizes at 10 20 of its level at birth This situation is known as primary lactose intolerance The age at which it is established is different in different the ethnic groups For example in Africa and Asia primary lactose intolerance appears as early as 2 years of age while in Japan it appears at the age of 6 8 years and in Finland after 10 to 15 years The reduction in lactose production is genetically programmed and physiological in many populations The primary deficit in lactase is the most common cause of lactose intolerance However the distribution of lactose intolerance around the globe shows that not everybody is born identical as far as this disaccharide is concerned see Geographical distribution Secondary or temporary lactose deficiency Lactose intolerance can appear on a temporary basis in people who have suffered a severe gastroenteritis specifically if the gastro is caused by the rotovirus which attacks the mucous membrane of the upper part of the intestine where the lactase is produced Diseases that affect the mucous membrane of the intestine for example celiac disease or the motility of the small intestine intestinal pseudo obstruction or contaminated small intestine syndrome can also have negative effects If the mucous membrane is destroyed the production of lactase stops One then has to wait for it to heal normally a few weeks before the symptoms of the

  • Geographical distribution
    to the south The countries around the Mediterranean Sea have incidences of the order of 50 75 while in Africa it reaches an amazing 80 Asia and South East Asia are affected even more with about 90 of the population suffering from lactose intolerance On a world scale three quarters of the total world population is touched by this phenomenon It must be said that these figures vary a little from study to study A research group has identified a mutation not of the gene of the enzyme lactase but in a nearby region in more than 1000 people from five different ethnic backgrounds Finnish Chinese Italian German and South Korean which were not affected by lactose intolerance This is a surprising discovery in the sense that one would rather have expected this type of variant to be detected in the gene that encodes the enzyme and furthermore in individuals that are intolerant to lactose In fact it probably represents a very old adaptation of the human genome to the environment since it is found in numerous populations of very different origins According to the authors of this study this mutation probably appeared at the time when cows became domesticated leading to the consumption of milk products They speculate that originally the adult human was not made to digest milk and that thanks to a little help by nature a gene of lactose tolerance was able to be transmitted from generation to generation Why are therefore certain individuals still affected by an intolerance of lactose According to the view of the authors of the study those people who are intolerant to lactose are in fact carriers of the original gene i e lacking the proximal mutation Subscribe today Subscribe to our electronic newsletter to be kept up to date about

  • Intolerance or allergy
    Supporting us Intolerance or allergy Milk allergy and lactose intolerance should not be confused There is often confusion between lactose intolerance and allergy to milk Since the two phenomena are completely different it would seem useful to briefly outline their characteristics The term intolerance refers to the total or partial absence of the enzyme in this case the lactase which is required to digest or to metabolize the food The intolerance does not induce any response by the immune system The term allergy on the other hand refers to a reaction by the immune system induced by an allergen in the food also known as trophallergen most frequently a protein in this case the milk proteins the most important ones being casein alpha lactalbumin beta lacto globulin An allergy to milk is much more serious than intolerance to lactose Subscribe today Subscribe to our electronic newsletter to be kept up to date about issues that are of direct interest to those affected by lactose intolerance For more information Supporting us no lactose com is an independent information website We need your donations to allow us to maintain these activities For more information We exist Thank you for your participation in

  • What solutions exist in the case of lactose intolerance ?
    lactose is used as the base matrix it may not be declared on the label To exclude all sources of lactose from one s diet is therefore not straight forward Most sufferers of lactose intolerance lack lactase only to a certain degree rather than totally It is therefore necessary to establish one s own level of intolerance by consuming milk products and observing the symptoms that appear When undertaking these personal trials it is important to remember that the severity of the symptoms depend on the quantity of residual intestinal lactase the quantity of lactose ingested and the conditions under which it was ingested for example whether lactose is eaten after fasting or whether it is eaten with or without other food This explains why the symptoms can vary greatly not only between individuals but also from one time to another Those people with a partial lack of lactase can make sure that they consume food stuff that has little lactose Specialty yoghurt with no milk powder added to increase the solid matter hard cheeses and milk with reduced lactose through the use of a microbial lactase which hydrolyses the lactose Some recommend the consumption of flavored milk or to consume milk products together with other food each person has to find his or her own tolerance Those who suffer from severe lactose intolerance the exclusion of all lactose is the best solution Since there exist now lactose free milk and yoghurt as well as cheeses and a range of replacement products products based on soy vegetable milk a diet free of lactose has become easier to achieve and doesn t require as many sacrifices Another solution is to compensate for the lack of natural lactase by introducing artificial lactase Such food complements should be taken about 30 minutes before

  • Nutrition
    food groups there exists a possibility of an incomplete nutritional intake Milk and milk products form our main sources of calcium Calcium is the mineral the most common in the human body 99 of the calcium in our bodies contributes to the strength of our bones and teeth The calcium which is not part of the skeletal structure although a small component of only 1 is essential to a large number of important functions blood coagulation muscle contraction transmission of nervous signals At all ages it is thus very important to make sure that sufficient calcium is provided to serve these different needs Some green leafed vegetables dry fruit and some mineral waters are also sources of calcium of some significance The consumption of vegetable juice enriched with calcium or milk and milk products from which the lactose was removed can equally contribute to the daily calcium requirements Those who are lactose intolerant and also vegetarian have to be particularly careful that their diet provides them with sufficient proteins Vitamins and Minerals Subscribe today Subscribe to our electronic newsletter to be kept up to date about issues that are of direct interest to those affected by lactose intolerance For more
