Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2008
People who are lactose intolerant have a new online resource with the re-launch and re-design of LactoseIntolerant.org. The site's new design and additional features have been implemented to make it easier for readers to learn more about lactose free foods, new remedies that allow lactose intolerant people to safely enjoy foods containing lactose, and a wide range of articles and blog posts about living with lactose intolerance.
Hailed as the ultimate lactose intolerant informational website, LactoseIntolerant.org aims to be a comprehensive clearinghouse of information covering virtually every facet of lactose intolerance.
70 million Americans suffer from lactose intolerance. When a person who is lactose intolerant consumes dairy they experience painful side effects such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and nausea. This is due to the fact that people who suffer from lactose intolerance lack an enzyme called lactase, which helps their bodies naturally process lactose, the natural sugar found in dairy products. Since their bodies cannot produce lactase, even eating small portions of milk, ice cream, cheese, and other dairy foods can cause painful and embarrassing symptoms.
Millions of people across the world live with this condition and it prevents them from enjoying many of their favorite foods. The site's new look and layout is intended to address the needs and concerns of these people and provides a wealth of information about their options. The site also features a variety of different ways that lactose intolerance sufferers can interact with each other and learn more about their condition with blog posts and the latest news about the condition such as:
- A discussion board on remedies
- The latest information and discussions on lactose intolerance
- A discussion board on other digestive conditions
- Lactose intolerant celebrities
- YouTube videos on lactose intolerance
- A section on lactose intolerant humor
Other site features include self-diagnostic tools to help people learn if they are lactose intolerant, lactose-free cooking tips, a monthly newsletter, the latest clinical research, and many more useful and informative articles and interactive features. Anyone who lives with lactose intolerance or cares for someone who does, is encouraged to visit http://www.lactoseintolerant.org to learn more about this condition and the options that are available.
