Lactose Intolerance

Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest the milk sugar (called lactose, which is composed of glucose and galactose). It is characterized by a deficiency of lactase: the enzyme that breaks down lactose into the two simple sugars.

It manifests itself with symptoms that can occur immediately after the ingestion of milk and dairy products or even later: swelling, pain, meteorism can dominate daily life.

Adult lactose intolerance is very common: in Northern Europe there is the lowest prevalence (about 5%), in central Europe the prevalence is around 30% and it reaches almost 70% in Europe of the South (including Italy).
