Is lactose intolerance an allergy?
Allergy is an abnormal reaction of the body to a foreign element, not necessarily dangerous, called an allergen. It involves the participation of the defense system, called the immune system. It can take on very severe proportions, depending on the sensitivity of the allergic subject. Its treatment is often heavy and difficult.
There is indeed an allergy to milk and more precisely to milk protein. It manifests itself mainly in children, by digestive signs, but also respiratory and skin signs (eczema).
Lactose intolerance, on the other hand, is not an allergic disease because it does not involve the immune system. It is simply the result of poor digestion of another component of milk, lactose. Its consequences are much less serious and its treatment easier.
I am allergic to milk proteins, can Lactolerance help me?
Unfortunately not, Lactolerance facilitates the assimilation of lactose but not of the protein.
