In conclusion

Although lactose intolerance is widespread, it isn’t considered a thread for your health. People who have trouble consuming lactose can learn about what dairy products and other foods they can eat without discomfort and which ones they should avoid. Then they will be able to enjoy milk, ice cream and other similar products by consuming them in small quantities or combining them with other foods.

Others may use lactase liquid or tablets to digest lactose. Even older women at risk of osteoporosis and growing children who are lactose intolerant can get the calcium they need by eating vegetables, fish and other calcium-rich foods that do not contain lactose.

A carefully chosen diet, with calcium supplements – if recommended by a doctor or nutritionist- is the key to reduce symptoms and secure one’s health.
