Things nobody ever tells you about lactose intolerance


1. Lactose intolerance affects everyone differently 

People with lactose intolerance have diverse reactions to consuming the offending dairy products. Tiny amounts of lactose may cause intense symptoms such as abdominal cramps and diarrhoea in some, while other might only experience gas.

2. The symptoms waste no time 
The symptoms of lactose intolerance usually occur within 30 minutes to two hours after consuming milk-based products. The more milk products you ingest, the worse you will feel.

3. You could be heading towards lactose intolerance
If you love ice-cream, the following news might be upsetting: Research shows that about 75% of the world's population lose the ability to break down lactose at some point, which means that many people naturally become lactose intolerant over time.
