Lactose intolerant

March 5, 2009 7:22am CST
Good morning. Pretty sure my 8 year old daughter is lactose intolerant. My mom is and I am and it seems that she is as well. I have always wondered why she always gets these belly aches and now it has finally come to surface. Does anyone have any advice about this? Thanks

i'm also lactose intolerant but i'm one of those who can tolerate lactose in other forms and in minute quantities. that's now. but when i was a baby that was different. my 3 year old son is also lactose intolerant. it was immediately ordered about 3 months after his birth that he take lactose free milk because of his skin allergy. i tried soy milk and was fine with it until my child turned 6 months and he has to switch to another formula. he dislikes the taste of lactose free milk and luckily we were able to find a regular milk that didn't trigger his skin allergy. when he turned 2 he started having diarrhea each and everytime he would drink his milk. i had to give him the 3 in 1 ovaltine that has milk in it. until he turned 3, which is his present age, and he started having diarrhea again. guess, it's valid since i read somewhere that lactose intolerance can worsen with age. he drinks tang now since it has calcium in it and his multivitamins has calcium in it too.
