Overview

Children with lactose intolerance are not able to completely digest the natural sugar content in milk. Thus, they get bloating, gas, and diarrhea after drinking or eating dairy products. A pediatrician is the specialist for the treatment of lactose intolerance.

Lactose Intolerance Symptoms

The lactose intolerance symptoms generally manifest themselves within one or half an hour after drinking or eating food containing lactose. According to pediatricians, the common symptoms are:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Bloating
  • Gas

Lactose IntoleranceCauses

One of the main lactose intolerance causes is the insufficient production of lactase for digesting milk sugar. Inability of production of lactase leads the lactose in the food to move into the colon in place of getting processed. The normal bacteria react with undigested lactose causing lactose intolerance.
