Lactosse Intollerance

Were you looking for information about Lactose Intolerance? Lactosse intollerance is a common misspelling of lactose intolerance.
 
Lactose intolerance is a condition that results from a lactase deficiency. Lactase is an enzyme produced by the cells lining the small intestine and is necessary to digest lactose, the natural sugar found in milk. Within 30 minutes to 2 hours after ingesting lactose, abdominal cramping and diarrhea often occur in a person with lactase deficiency. These symptoms are essential to a diagnosis of lactose intolerance.
 
Other symptoms may include nausea, bloating, gas, and abdominal pain. Diet modification can help minimize the symptoms of this condition. There is currently no treatment that can improve the body's ability to produce lactase.
