Need Lactose Intolerance 101 Lesson For Moms!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

So, one of our two daughters with Celiac is also lactose intolerant based on her biopsy results.

Biopsy results were:

Lactase 2.2 (Abnormal is <15)

Sucrase 13.4 (Abnormal is <25)

Maltase 56.8 (Abnormal is <100)

Palatinase 2.2 (Abnormal is <5).

Our GI said the following:

- Lactose free milk is ok

- Cheese is ok

- Yogurt is ok

- Give her a Lactaid before feeding her any other dairy procucts

A few questions:

What do you all think?

Is there a good primer on going lactose free anywhere?

Does going LF also mean no goat cheese? Are goats/cows different in this?

If cheese is ok, is cream cheese ok?

Any great ways of making this make sense to a 5 year old?

...I think my elementary questions show how ignorant I am in this!

Thanks in advance!

If I recall correctly, lactaid milk and lactose free ice cream are not really lactose free but rather have lactaid added. Our daughter could not tolerate it very well. We switched to soy milk but later found soy sensitivity so now have her on almond milk. She also does not do well with yogurt so we give the soy yogurt sparingly. The Kraft cheeses usually say on the back that they contain 0 grams of lactose so I have assumed that they are lactose free. Definitely check the cheese though. I am sure you can google cream cheese to find out.

Good luck!
