Health Tip: Is My Child Lactose Intolerant?
-- People who are lactose-intolerant can't digest a sugar found in milk.
Could your child be among them? The American Academy of Pediatrics says signs of trouble digesting lactose may include:

- Complaining of gas.
- Feeling nauseated.
- Having diarrhea.
Symptoms usually begin within 30 minutes to 2 hours of drinking milk, the academy says.
