Interview with nutritionist Julie Delorme

What do nutritionists think?

Hello, Julie Delorme. You are a dietician-nutritionist, specialising in gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. What is the link between digestive disorders and food intolerances?

JD: Hello. In France, about 10 million people suffer from stomach aches, bloating and/or transit problems. In 80% of cases, these disorders are functional, i.e. no organic pathology is the cause and these digestive symptoms are often triggered or aggravated by food intolerances, comparable to lactose intolerance.

What are the most common misconceptions about the presence or absence of lactose in food?

JD: People generally think that lactose is present in all dairy products. Cheeses, for example, contain relatively little lactose, but other foods that we don't always think about, such as certain cold cuts or sauces, do.

What do you think of Lactolerance®?

JD: In order to be absorbed, lactose must be digested by an enzyme, lactase. It is its deficiency in the body, whether temporary or permanent, that is responsible for lactose intolerance. By taking lactase capsules, we compensate for this deficiency.
Lactolerance® is therefore a simple and effective way to allow oneself to continue to eat lactose-rich foods without suffering from unpleasant digestive symptoms. I use it myself and recommend it to my patients.

What do you advise your lactose intolerant patients to do?

JD: I explain to them exactly what foods they can eat and what foods can cause them problems. I give them personalised advice, teach them how to read labels, cook without lactose and find alternative foods. I give them the tools to control their intolerance and improve their quality of life.

How do you explain that some people, despite all the precautions they take with regard to lactose, continue to have digestive problems?

JD: It is very likely that these people have several food intolerances. A visit to a specialist dietician-nutritionist would help to identify them.
