    Hi,
    Thanks for the really clear article. My question is, are there different levels of the intolerance? For example I do sometimes suffer stomach rumbling after consuming dairy items so could I have a fairly mild case?

    Thanks,
    Josh

      Yes, there is definitely different levels of lactose intolerance. For example, I can consume foods that contain a bit of milk in them but cannot consume milk or ice cream nor chocolate. You will find individuals that will react if there is nanogram of lactose in food. The tolerance differs from person to person.
