Diarrhea Due to Lactose Intolerance – How to Solve It?

Not all diarrhea is related to viruses or bacteria. Some people experience diarrhea due to lactose intolerance. How do you overcome diarrhea due to lactose intolerance?

What is Diarrhea?

Generally, diarrhea can be defined if the frequency of defecation is more than usual (>3 times/day) with liquid stool consistency.

Diarrhea can be caused by:

  • Escherichia coli bacteria (E.coli). People usually get infected with this bacteria from contaminated food and drink
  • Viruses such as the flu, norovirus, or rotavirus. Rotavirus is the most common cause of acute diarrhea in children
  • Parasites that can be present in contaminated food or water
  • Intolerance or sensitivity to foods, such as lactose and fructose
  • Food allergies
  • Side effects of certain drugs, such as antibiotics, cancer drugs, and antacids that contain magnesium
  • Diseases that affect the stomach, small intestine, or large intestine, such as Crohn’s disease
  • Celiac disease or a disease that causes the body to reject gluten protein

Diarrhea Due to Lactose Intolerance

One of the most common causes of diarrhea is lactose intolerance.

Lactose intolerance is a condition that makes the body unable to digest lactose, the sugar found in cow’s milk and its processed products.

Under normal conditions, lactose is digested into glucose and galactose by an enzyme called lactase. Glucose and galactose can be absorbed by the body and used as a source of energy.

However, those with lactose intolerance are unable to produce enough lactase. As a result, undigested lactose enters the colon and is fermented by bacteria, causing various symptoms such as diarrhea.

How to Overcome Diarrhea Due to Lactose Intolerance

Diarrhea in lactose intolerance tends to be similar to diarrhea in general. This disease can be overcome by giving diarrhea medicine prescribed by a doctor.

The main key to overcome diarrhea is rehydration.

It will be better if the child stops consuming lactose or milk-processed products.

If the child starts to have diarrhea, then the consumption of milk and other processed products must be stopped.

You should record any food that causes this condition, such as cow’s milk, cheese, yogurt, biscuits, cakes, etc. 

Food Consumption in Lactose Intolerance

People who have diarrhea due to lactose intolerance need to pay attention to the food they consume.

It is best to choose lactose-free food alternatives that can be consumed as a substitute for milk and other lactose-containing foods.

Yogurt, certain types of cheese, and other foods marked lactose-free that are sold freely in the market are generally safe for children to consume.

Choose the Appropriate Product to Avoid Diarrhea Due to Lactose Intolerance

You can still enjoy food without having to experience diarrhea due to lactose intolerance. Some selected products from Arummi can be a choice for those who are lactose intolerant.
