Lactose Intolerence

Were you looking for information about Lactose Intolerance? Lactose intolerence is a common misspelling of lactose intolerance.
Lactose intolerance occurs when a person is unable to digest lactose, the major sugar found in milk. People sometimes confuse this condition with cow's milk intolerance because the symptoms are similar. However, the two are not related. Being intolerant to cow's milk is an allergic reaction triggered by the immune system; lactose intolerance is a problem caused by the digestive system.
Common symptoms of lactose intolerance include cramps, bloating, gas, and diarrhea. The condition is easily treated through dietary modifications, and a variety of lactose-reduced dairy products, containing as much calcium as regular milk, are available.
