Lactose is a unique carbohydrate in milk, and it is also the main source of energy in infants and young children. The digestion and absorption of lactose play an important role in children's growth and development. If the  infants lactose intolerance is not treated or treated improperly, it will have a bad effect on the baby.

Effect one: affect the normal development of the baby lactose into the body and then decompose into glucose and galactose under the action of small intestinal tract lactase, the latter is the component of the brain and nerve tissue sugar lipids, is the essential material for the baby's brain development. When the lactase deficiency in the human body, the lactose entering the intestine cannot be absorbed, which will affect the normal development of the baby in the long run. The study found that children with lactase deficiency were significantly lower in height and weight than normal children.

Impact 2: Not conducive to baby's calcium absorption, affecting the development of bones and teeth for children who are in the stage of vigorous growth and development, the nutritional role of calcium is very important, because 99% of the body's calcium is present in bones and teeth, children's height growth depends on the growth of bones, and the growth of bones is the deposition of minerals such as calcium and phosphorus in bone cells. Lactose can help calcium from low-molecular soluble substances, thereby increasing the absorption and absorption of calcium.

Lactose intolerance may affect the development of your baby's bones and teeth. Because the baby's lactose intolerance is usually staged, during the diarrhea in babies, the mother can give the baby lactose-free food. When diarrhea stops, the mother will return the baby to the normal diet. Now, my mother can choose the whole milk protein formula lactose-free formula, rich in nutrients, can effectively control diarrhea, and give the baby enough nutrition.

There are many factors involved in the slow growth of your baby's weight. One of them is formula malnutrition or lactose intolerance. If your baby is allergic to a protein in formula, or lactose intolerance, when the baby has milk powder or breast milk, it will During the process of causing diarrhea and diarrhea, the baby's nutrient loss and natural weight gain are also hindered. Some babies are allergic to milk protein. Even if the baby has enough milk, the baby can't digest and absorb the milk, so it is difficult to get nutrients to increase body weight.

The body's tolerance to lactose is genetically determined, and the incidence varies significantly in different regions. Nordic races are rarely lactose intolerant, but most people in the world except the Europeans and their descendants are Lactose intolerance is the majority. We have explained this in the past that Europeans have been nomadic since ancient times and have long been eating dairy products. The digestion and absorption of lactose is the result of natural selection.

Due to factors such as heredity, eating habits, etc., some people have low lactase activity or lack of lactase in the small intestine.


After eating milk and dairy products, it can not completely decompose lactose, which will cause a series of clinical symptoms such as abdominal distension, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

The degree of the scene is the life of people. Lactitol deficiency not only causes gastrointestinal discomfort but also affects protein, calcium, iron and other camps.

The absorption of nutrients, increasing the incidence of malnutrition, osteoporosis, and other diseases, can also cause children's growth retardation.

Studies have pointed out that the incidence of lactose deficiency in the Chinese Han population is 75% 95%, and the incidence of lactose deficiency in ethnic minorities is 76%~95.5%.

In summary, lactose intolerance has a certain effect on body weight, which is not conducive to calcium absorption and bone development. Due to the influence of heredity and eating habits, the height and weight of the East and West are different.
