Q.

lactose intolerance

My son was tested for lactose intolerance last year, (solids reducing stool test) and result was 0,25%.

Should we have it tested again? (will results fluctuate?)
Is this result so low that it can be ignored?

Is it a good idea to try giving lactose products every now and then to see if the child can tolerate it better?

This test is low and it is certainly worth trying to introduce a lactose containing product and see if he can tolerate it.
