Survey Results: How do lactose intolerant individuals cope with their symptoms?

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

As a lactose intolerant sufferer, its important to know what others are doing about their condition.

In a recent 2007 survey, I asked 300 lactose intolerant individuals what they did to coup with their lactose intolerance. Here are the results:

32% – Avoid dairy completely
32% – Take lactase supplements with dairy foods
12% – Consume lactose-free/dairy-free substitute products
24% – Suffer the pain

** It is interesting to note, that in a similar survey1999 showed that a whopping 53% of lactose intolerant sufferers avoided dairy, while only 24% took lactase supplements when consuming dairy products. **
