We can do test for lactose intolerance, lactose intolerance also known as lactose indigestion or lactose malabsorption, refers to lactose deficiency in the human body, which causes the lactose in milk to be converted into galactose and glucose which are easily absorbed by the adult body, thus affecting the digestion and absorption of lactose...

Lactose deficiency, the lactose ingested by humans can not be digested into the blood, but left in the intestines. A large amount of gas is generated during the process of intestinal bacterial fermentation to break down lactose. Causes bloating, venting, and bowel. Excess lactose also increases the osmotic pressure inside the intestine, preventing the absorption of water and causing diarrhea and colic.


The harm of lactase deficiency:

 Early lactose intolerance infants will have problems such as spitting milk, diarrhea, constipation, bowel, bloating, abdominal pain, venting, etc. Easy to crywhen the baby is 4 to 6 months old. occasionally there will be three or two days of reduced milk intake, performance like poor appetite, do not want to eat, this is the baby's unique anorexia phenomenon. He Mingjiao said that the period of babies may appear in the baby 3-4 months, and may also appear in about 6-10 months. There are many reasons for causing the baby to be tired of milk, but it can be divided into physiological anorexia and pathological anorexia.

Physiological anorexia has a short duration, most of which is two or three days. At this time, the baby's mental state is normal, and there will be no abnormalities such as fever, crying, etc. Parents need not worry.

Pathological anorexia is caused by the disease that the baby is unwilling to eat milk, some lactose intolerance, and vomiting, diarrhea in babies caused by the phenomenon of malnutrition. The other is an acute infection. For example, thrush can cause oral pain. When children drink milk, they will feel pain and refuse to eat. Therefore, in addition to tired of breasts, there will be other abnormal performances, such as poor sleep, lack of energy, easy to cry, and even bloating, vomiting, fever or shortness of breath. Parents should pay attention to it and go to the hospital for medical treatment. The phenomenon, lactose intolerance can not be treated in time will cause infants and young children to be tired of milk, affecting their growth and development.

The consequences of calcium deficiency in newborns are relatively large, especially severe calcium deficiency, which can easily lead to neonatal rickets, new teeth, late teeth, irregular teeth, and anorexia eclipse, etc. Conducive to the growth of children.

Milk contains trace elements essential for the growth and development of human bones, muscles, organs, brains, etc. Because lactose intolerance can not absorb the nutrients in milk, infants and young children with malnutrition generally have various symptoms of malnutrition.

The galactose formed by milk under the action of lactase is an essential substance for the development of the baby's brain, and the long-term lactose intolerance affects the brain development of infants and young children.


At the same time, dry lactose is intolerant. After drinking milk, milk can not be completely decomposed, digested and absorbed in the intestines of infants and young children, and various harmful substances are formed under the action of bacteria. It causes intestinal flora imbalance. Causes gastrointestinal problems, long-term lactose intolerance can lead to chronic diarrhea that is difficult to cure in children; some children will induce diaper rash.

Lactose intolerance affects various minerals in milk. Such as the absorption of calcium, iron, and phosphorus. Causes the baby to be deficient in calcium, zinc deficiency, iron deficiency, and anemia.

Lactose intolerance can also cause the growth and development of vitamins, proteins and other infants in milk, which are difficult to be digested and absorbed by children. It is suitable for children with low body weight and growth retardation. In severe cases, the complications induced by lactose intolerance may endanger the life of the child.
