Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

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