The best home remedy for controlling symptoms of Lactose Intolerance is limiting consumption of dairy products but this comes at a cost of limited calcium and vitamin D intake which has its own signs and symptoms. The individual can increase calcium intake by taking foods like the following which are rich in calcium: Broccoli Bread Juice Canned salmon Soy milk or rice milk Orange Pinto Beans Rhubarb Spinach.
Dietary adjustment is the primary form of therapy for patients with lactose intolerance. Advise patients to reduce or restrict products containing lactose. Prehydrolyzed milk (LACTAID) is available and is effective. Yogurt and fermented products, such as cheeses, are better tolerated than regular milk.
Test Method 1 : The health professional drawing blood will:
Wrap an elastic band around your upper arm to stop the flow of blood. This makes the veins below the band larger so it is easier to put a needle into the vein. An elastic band may not be used for a lactic acid test because a band around the arm muscle may cause a false increase in lactic acid.
Clean the needle site with alcohol.
Put the needle into the vein. More than one needle stick may be needed.
Attach a tube to the needle to fill it with blood.
Remove the band from your arm when enough blood is collected.
Put a gauze pad or cotton ball over the needle site as the needle is removed.
Put pressure on the site and then put on a bandage.
