LACTO-INTOLERANT

Years ago, Anya’s previous pediatricians confirmed her to be lacto-intolerant, but may have a chance of out growing it. It was established the moment she started on milk formula. She either vomits right after feeding or have watery stools. And so we shifted from milk after milk…soya, to lacto-free which in turn have arisen another problem which is constipation. Not until she was a year old did we finally found the right milk, Pediasure of Abbott. She’s been using this complete nutrient formula, the best there is, since then. I even had this posted on my other blog (http://heniperrr.blogspot.com/2009/06/pediasure.html) It can actually be a sole source of nutrition, but now that she’s 3, we decided that she’s eating a lot of table foods already and can be shifted to a less dense thus cheaper milk…and is meant for pre-schoolers like her. Lactum of Meadjohnson’s my best bet. Anya liked the taste as well…unfortunately, after a week’s trial alternating with Pediasure it seems to be working well, but 2 dys ago she starte d having soft stools and this morning watery.

I suddenly remembered Dr. Livelo’s explanation before, at first her lactase can do its part in dealing with the lactose ingestion but they were not enough to do so if consumption is in large amount. And its reproduction will not be as fast and so the symptoms can be seen which I have seen but were not able to confirm right away: reddish anus and softening stools to diarrheal.

Sadly, this just meant she still hasn’t out-grown being lactose-intolerant. She can have some, but not much, since it doesn’t affect her when partaking small amounts. I wonder if she’ll ever have normal lactase production.
