Diagnosis and Treatment for Lactose Intolerance in Kids

Diagnosis and Treatment for Lactose Intolerance in Kids

Lactose intolerance is a condition wherein you are not able to digest lactose, which is a sugar found in milk. Other foods that contain lactose include cheese and ice-cream. Inadequate production of the lactase enzyme in children causes lactose intolerance. This enzyme is produced in the intestine that helps in the digestion of lactose.

Lactose intolerance is often confused with milk intolerance. The symptoms are similar but they do not share the same cause. Milk allergy is an adverse reaction towards milk and it is a problem of the immune system, whereas lactose intolerance involves the digestive system.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of lactose intolerance are:

  1. Bloating; on consumption of milk over a period of time

  2. Diarrhea is also very common

  3. Stomach pain

  4. Nausea

Diagnosis:

  1. It is self -diagnosable; just strike out foods containing lactose from your child’s diet and see if the symptoms get better with time. If the symptoms happen to fade away gradually, then it certainly must’ve been lactose intolerance.

  2. However, it can be tricky as many non-dairy products also contain lactose.

  3. If the child is lactose intolerant, then he/she might have to undergo a lactose breath test. This is used to test the levels of hydrogen in the child’s breath after the child consumes a lactose solution. Usually, hydrogen levels are low in one’s breath. However, if the lactose solution is not digested properly, then it will lead to a temporary increase in the levels of hydrogen in the breath, thus indicating lactose intolerance.

Treatment:

This disorder does not have a cure; so in case your child has lactose intolerance, you need to adjust his/her diet accordingly. Over-the-counter lactase is also available that helps in digesting lactose based foods. You can also go for the ‘lactose- free’ milk variety for your child.

My baby is 1 years 11 months. She breast feeds 2-3 times a day. She does not feel hungry. If I force her to eat, she cries & feels like vomit. I make a variety of food to make her feel interested. Also give her cow's milk mixing dry fruits powder. But all efforts in vain. Hence she is only 8 kgs. She is very active & does not fall ill. But her not eating food is a great cause of concern to me.

I share your concern, madam. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your baby's problem and without side effects. Please give her homoeopathic medicine Pulsatilla 30 daily in the morning and afternoon. Also Nux vomica 30 in the evening (5 to 6 pills each time) for 7 days. Contact me for any further consultation if required.

You should not take too many TT injections as it increases reaction chances. If your primary vaccination shedule is complete duuring childhood, a dose once in 10 years will suffice.
