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.

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.

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.
