Lactose-Intolerant People Should Drink More Milk, Expert Says

ke the milk and that they were intolerant. When we tested them they had only a very modest level of symptoms, though -- almost incidental. Two weeks later, after they had been consuming a dairy-based, high-calcium diet, we tested them again. Every one of these girls had absolutely no symptoms."

According to Savaiano, although many people think that some babies are lactose intolerant, actually this isn't the case. "Milk allergy is often confused with lactose intolerance, but they are physiologically different," Savaiano says. "Babies do not develop lactose intolerance until they are 3 to 5 years old. The intestinal lactase remains high in all infants, except the very rare situation where there is a genetic lack of the enzyme from birth."

Savaiano says milk allergies appears in 5 percent of newborns, but that almost all infants outgrow this allergy by their first birthday. "The best way to deal with this is to continue breast feeding," he says.
