Lactose Intolerance (cont.)

Medication

Because milk and milk containing products are the main sources of dietary calcium and vitamin D, people with lactose intolerance may be deficient in calcium and vitamin D. Calcium and vitamin D deficiency can lead to early osteoporosis and fragile bones. Therefore, calcium and vitamin D supplements are recommended for people with lactose intolerance.

Lactase enzyme supplements can be added to milk, as mentioned earlier, for people with lactose intolerance.
