One differentiates between three forms of lactose intolerance. The primary form of lactose intolerance is hereditary. With this form, the amount of lactase produced decreases after the nursing period in infancy – and with it the ability to break down lactose. Experiencing a decrease in lactase over the course of one’s adult life is actually normal. In fact, roughly 75% of the world’s population is affected. The secondary form of lactose intolerance, however, occurs through injury to the inner lining of the small intestine. This often occurs in connection with an illness, for instance, with chronic intestinal diseases, celiac disease or malnutrition. Upon successful treatment of the injury to the inner lining of the small intestine, this secondary form of lactose intolerance can possibly subside.The congenital form of lactose intolerance, however, is owing to a rare, inheritable gene defect. Here, the lactase enzyme cannot be formed by the body. Infants cannot assimilate mother’s milk. In such a case, it is crucial to provide exclusively lactose-free nourishment to affected infants and toddlers due to the risk of dehydration.
