The fact is that cows milk was never intended to be consumed by humans. So the problem is quite common in both children and adults.

I spent 5 years in and out off Hospital before being told I was Lactose Intolerence at the age of 15. Now when I question my house surgeon and Stomach Doctor (Gastro something). He Qouted to me that Lactose Intolerence was rare and only 1 in every Million person (per head of population) is Lactose Intolerence.

No, cats have an intolerence to lactose found in all forms of cows milk. Use cat milk. If you give this milk to your cat, it will develop diarrhea

Older children and adults can adjust their intake of lactose depending on how much and what they can tolerate.

If you are referring to lactose intolerence, it means that you can't eat or drink and dairy products such as cheese, milk or cream (anything which contains milk). That's a good question though, well done.

General meaning:Lactose intolerance is results of an inability to digest or to metabolize lactose.due to missing or defective enzymes (inborn error of metabolism)Flow:ingested milk productsbuildup of dissacharides because deficiency of lactase in the intestinal villi.so, lactose cant be degraded to galactose and glucosecant be absorbed in to the bloodstream from the villilactose will accumulatedproducing H2, CO2 and organic acids.digestive problems: bloating and diarrheaNote that the common definition for "lactose intolerance" excludes infants. Virtually all human infants (indeed all mammal infants) are able to digest lactose, as it is a key ingredient in gaining sustenance from their mother. Infants not able to digest lactose are much more rare (and is a serious condition).Normally, mammals lose the ability to digest lactose shortly after entering childhood (in humans, somewhere between 3 and 5). However, a mutation in certain human populations somewhere around 20,000 BCE enabled those people to continue to consume milk for their entire life. So, in reality, "lactose tolerance" is the genetic aberration (though, a beneficial one).

Children or adults who are lactose intolerant do not have the necessary digestive enzymes to properly break down and absorb lactose, which is milk sugar. If they consume dairy products, they may become quite ill with abdominal pain, cramping and often severe diarrhea.

sucrose (common sugar), lactose, lactulose, trehalose, maltose, and cellobiose are common disaccharides.

User Avatar

I guess you mean by the most common form of sugar, and that is it, then it will be Lactose

When Asians were evolutionally developing, they mostly ate vegetables. So therefore, their metabolism is not as accustomed to processing high levels of protein, fat, and their glucose levels are eaiser to raise and drop. And in China, milk isn't as popular. So therefore, I assume, more Asians develop lactose intolerence. By the way, an Asian wrote this. :) And I'm not a dietician, but I'm just making a logical assumption.
