My son is 3 and is still very lactose intolerant. Just curious if anyone has used the lactose intolerance pills that are on the market and if they actually work? I'm wanting my son to be able to enjoy foods that we normally make for ourselves that he can't eat

Lactose intolerance is a NORMAL condition. The condition begins at about six in the majority of the world's population, and progresses as the person ages. That's because milk is a substance designed for the nutrition of the young of a species. Lactose is a sugar found in milk.



Why complicate things and put chemicals in your child's body to make him be able to digest a foreign substance? I'm sure your diet doesn't completely consist of milk products.

I am lactose intolerant as well. Lactase supplements are effective, although he might have to take a different dose depending on the amount of milk in the food. There are chewable varieties so he doesn't have to swallow a pill, and both Walgreens and Wal-Mart have a store brand of these, which is just as effective. Hope this helps!

My son is slowly and I mean very slowly better at eating dairy products. Found out that it was around his age that his father outgrew the lactose intolerance....So I'm praying by the time he's 4 or starts school that he will have outgrown it fully

Hello Jessica -- that is perfectly fine -- Im the information processor here, at your service. If you ever want to check out this product or others just send me a message sometime. And you may call me as well.

(Just to break it down real quick - the cost comes down the this: less than twenty a month, and less than two dollars a day - its 55 dollars for 90 servings (3 mo. supply) -- plus with having 90% absorbancy - you are receiving over 90% of your money's worth. When you look at big box stores (walmart, etc.) or health stores (vitamin world/planet earth) and even prescription medications - you might get up to a total of 30% absorbancy - maybe a little more, and thats with a healthy body) Just wanted to pass this information on to you as well.



Take care, and again, keep us posted on your son. I hope the pills truly help him out.

It's entirely up to you Jessica - Im only providing you with information - and if you were to break down the cost - its about 1.63 a day, less than $20 a month ($55 divide 90 days or 55 divided by 3 months) This is just so you have a "visual" of what you are spending. Another quick reference - with having over 90% absorbancy - you are getting over 90% of your monies worth.



Keep us posted on how your son does with the lactose pills -- it'll be great to hear if they are working well for him! Take care, and have a great weekend! Have a wonderul summer!

I will try the lactose pills first $54.95 is a lot of money right now on only one income when you're struggling just to make ends meet.  If not I'll have to save that money up





Quoting Veronica:

I haven't heard of lactose pills before, but I did hear this about a product we have. Its called Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics. Its all natural, top of the line ingredients - that absorbs within 5 to 10 minutes and over 90% absorbancy. We have a customer who's little girl was lactose intolerant too - within a few times of taking this product she was able to eat ice cream again. It would most likely have to do with the fact that it aids in digestion, and perhaps that is why people are lactose intolerant because they possible lack something that helps digest lactose or milk protein. We have this product for adults, and in our Spectrum line for children. It only costs - $54.95 for 90 servings (shipping and tax not included) It can be taken before, during or after a meal. (It supports normal digestion of grains and dairy products)
If you would like more information - you may send me a message, or you may visit my webportal: www.marketamerica.com/cvk -- scroll down and click on 'view more' under Featured Brands -- then click ISOTONIX -- you scroll down til you find 'Spectrum Digestive Enzymes' and simply click on it for full details (ingredients, benefits, uniqueness, label, etc.)

Thank you Marie. But he's lactose intolerant I know it's not an allergy to milk b/c he drinks lactose free milk and has NO problems with it. I'm just tired of going places and people not thinking to ask what he can't have and I figured this might help. His doctor said I could try it with him but I just wanted to know if anyone has had luck with it before I tried it.

I use Lacteese and also buy lactose free milk. I can eat products that contain milk products (bread, cake etc), but not things like ice cream, yogurt and cheese.



I have a friend who's kids are also lactose intolerant. They use the lactose pills all the time.



Someone told me once that the intolerance is either an allergy to the protein OR lactose intolerance. It could be either. A doctor should know what questions to ask or test to run to determine which is causing the digestive upset.
