Could I be Lactose Intolerant? Quiz
If you have unpleasant symptoms after eating or drinking milk or milk products – you may be wondering if you are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is the impaired ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. This happens when the body doesn’t make enough lactase, an enzyme that breaks down lactose.
When we refer to dairy products throughout the quiz, these can be any products that contain lactose, some of which include:
- Regular & low-fat milk
- Ice cream
- Regular and low-fat yogurt
- Milk Chocolate / Flavoured Milk
- Buttermilk / Eggnog
This information is intended for information purposes only and should not be used a substitute for the medical care and advice of your doctor. It’s important to listen to your body and know when to get help, but only medical professionals can assess if one is lactose intolerant or not. Medical professionals can also point you in the right direction, so that you do not end up with any deficiencies or misinformation.
