The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Identifying Milk Allergy in Children

You can't know everything about everything, but medical professionals need to come close. True, they get years of training, both classroom and on-the-job. Their knowledge and skills nevertheless need to be continually refreshed, lest they miss a crucial bit of information at a critical time.

I found a quick refresher page on Advance for Nurses, "providing news and clinical and professional information for LPNs/LVNs." Kim Mudd, research nurse/program coordinator, pediatric allergy/immunology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore [named the best hospital in America by U. S. News and World Reports, BTW], wrote a test case on Milk Allergy in Children.

Though aimed at professionals and footnoted up the wazoo, the article is far more readable than a medical journal article. Mudd compresses tons of facts on the subject into a small space, making the article an excellent reference to bookmark and come back to for the facts.
