Health Tip: Is My Child Lactose Intolerant?

04/13/11

(HealthDay News) -- People who are lactose-intolerant can't digest a sugar found in milk.

Could your child be among them? The American Academy of Pediatrics says signs of trouble digesting lactose may include:

  • Having stomach cramps.
  • Feeling bloated.
  • Complaining of gas.
  • Feeling nauseated.
  • Having diarrhea.

Symptoms usually begin within 30 minutes to 2 hours of drinking milk, the academy says.
