How Do I Know If I’m Lactose Intolerant?

Milk, cheese, butter, ice cream, some of our favorite treats and cooking ingredients may not always agree with our guts due to their lactose content. Some may even have an intolerance to consuming amounts of lactose. But how can you tell if your symptoms are a result of lactose intolerance, or something else like IBS?

In today’s episode, Dr. Claire Jansson-Knodell, a Gastroenterologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at The Cleveland Clinic, is here to give us the scoop on all things lactose intolerance. What is lactose anyways? How is it affecting your gut? What research, treatments, and guidance are out there? Dr. Knodell shares her expertise and may be even a little good news for those of us who really want to have that scoop of ice cream. This episode is brought to you by the American College of Gastroenterology’s Patient Care Committee.
