Hi there! Are you here because you have just received your results from Allergy Test and are now wondering what to do. Are you experiencing symptoms of lactose intolerance and you are not sure what you can and cannot eat? Take a look at our blog below and around our website in order to find out more. 

Lactose is often found in milk. There are many symptoms of lactose intolerance and it is important you know what you should be looking out for. If milk and other forms of dairy are a major part of your diet, then don’t worry as there are always alternative foods and ways that you can cope with lactose intolerance. However, it does mean that morning cup of coffee and that bowl of cereal you have daily might be a thing of the past.

However, there is a difference between being lactose intolerant and having a dairy intolerance. Having a lactose intolerance can cause unpleasant symptoms but they can be managed. It is better to know your lactose intolerance symptoms than to not to. So, in that regard, if you have been experiencing any of the below symptoms, then your results do make sense.
