We will be looking at a unique allergic you might not know about and its lactose intolerance

A unique food problem is lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is the inability to break down a sort of common sugar called lactose. Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency in the enzyme lactase in the inner lining of the GI wall. A person becomes lactose intolerant when his or her small digestive tract quits making enough of the chemical lactase to process and separate the lactose.

This is relatively rare in people as people with this food problem react to products with milk sugar found in them such as yogurt, ice cream, butter, and cheese. But at the same time it's in a few pieces of bread and baked goods, pancake mixes, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, candy, cookies, salad dressings, deli meats, drink mixes and margarine. A person with this deficiency is not able to digest this milk sugar. Gas, stomach pains, bloating and nausea are common symptoms of lactose intolerance.

If you are lactose intolerant, there are supplements available that you can take before taking foods that eliminate the negative reaction. These supplement breakdown the lactose to make digestion easier. You can likewise consider nondairy substitutes, for example, soy frozen yogurts and other milk drinks.

A doctor can, for the most part, tell whether you have lactose intolerance by making inquiries about your side effects. Sometimes doctors order a hydrogen breath test or a blood sugar test to confirm the diagnosis. It is important to inform people around you about your food problem to prevent them from serving your meals with milk in them.
