Lactase is a digestive enzyme required for the breakdown of the milk sugar lactose. Lactase should be produced in the small intestines, however if little or no lactase is produced or if production is impaired, undigested lactose moves into the colon where it is fermented and hydrogen, carbon dioxide and organic acids are produced often resulting in cramps, wind and diarrhoea.
This intolerance to lactose is not life threatening however, it can make patients feel very unwell and although eliminating milk based products is one solution, it can prove impractical as well as resulting in a very restricted diet.
