The frequency of lactose intolerance was studied in patients with chronic gastrointestinal disease, mainly peptic ulcer to explore the possibilities of the use of lactose-poor milk. It was found that whole milk caused dyspeptic symptoms in 45% of patients with peptic ulcer; lactose-intolerance was present in 82% of the patients with milk intolerance; lactose poor powdered milk resulted in complete freedom from symptoms. Use of milk with reduced lactose contents is recommended in the diet of adult patients with lactase deficiency.
