Did you know that around 75% of the world’s population suffers from lactose intolerance? Lactose intolerance refers to gastrointestinal symptoms resulting from undigested lactose being present in the large intestine. These symptoms occur when a lactose intolerant person consumes too much lactose. Symptoms include bloating, cramps, production of excess gas and diarrhoea. There are several tests available to determine if someone is lactose intolerant. The most widely used method is a hydrogen breath test.
