IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT COMMENTS

Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at stevecarper@cs.com.

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com 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.

Report From the LI Conference, part 25

Another member of the thundering herd from Minnesota gave one last presentation that combed through the medical literature pertaining to this question.

Evidence-based Practice Center Presentation IV: Effective Strategies for the Management of Individuals With Diagnosed Lactose Intolerance
Aasma Shaukat, M.D., M.P.H.
Investigator
Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center
Division of Gastroenterology
Department of Medicine
University of Minnesota

The literature burped up a grand total of 37 studies for managing lactose intolerance. Almost all of them showed nothing of interest or were based on such small and bad samples that they added up to nothing.

The limp conclusion: using lactose-reduced milk reduced symptoms in the lactose intolerant.
