Lactose intolerance is a disorder people often have to deal with for their entire lives. Although it isn’t life-threatening, it makes eating dairy uncomfortable and produces unpleasant symptoms. Thankfully, there are ways people can reduce and eliminate these symptoms, some of which will allow them to continue enjoying dairy.
How can you make lactose intolerance pain go away?
A lactose intolerant gut responds relatively slowly after people ingest diary.
The first symptoms will present themselves between 30 minutes and two hours, and they should resolve within roughly 48 hours, subsiding as lactose leaves the digestive system.
The majority of the world’s population is lactose intolerant (roughly 70 percent), and experts have devised several ways people can avoid experiencing ill effects.
Watch out for calcium
Should people choose to stop eating dairy, they will have to find a way to increase their calcium intake.
Dairy is the richest source of calcium, but some lactose substitutes are as well.
These include most alternative milk types, such as rice, oak or almond and soya yoghurts and cheeses.
