Lactose intolerance is a non-infectious diarrhea caused by the body’s digestive system with little lactase secretion, unable to fully digest and break down lactose in breast milk or cow milk, also known as lactase deficiency. Why is there lactose intolerance? The sugars in breast milk and cow milk are mainly lactose, and lactose needs to be decomposed by lactase to be absorbed. When the secretion of lactase at the tip of the villi on the surface of the small intestine, especially the jejunum mucosa, is reduced, or the activity is not high, the lactose in the milk cannot be completely digested and decomposed, then part of the lactose will be digested by the colonic bacteria into lactic acid and gas. At this time, the baby will show the following two conditions: Lactic acid in the small intestine will stimulate the intestinal wall and increase intestinal peristalsis, resulting in the “diarrhea” that we see, and some “red ass” problem. The gas produces flatulence and increases intestinal motility in the intestine, and occasionally may induce intestinal cramps and intestinal colic, so it will make the child show anxiety and crying.
