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.

Why Does Milk Bother Me?

The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC) is a service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health. Which almost makes for a full blog post all by itself.

They have pages on many, many diseases, illnesses, and conditions, including a good page on lactose intolerance.

If you have kids suffering from LI and wonder how exactly to explain it to them, though, they have a better page aimed especially at children. Why Does Milk Bother Me? explains it all in simple language, and has cartoons to ease the eye down the page.

It's not as full an explanation as the adult one, of course, but it should help get the basics across to a youngster.
