Q.

Lactose Intolerant

Doctor, I would like to know where i can have my 12 month old tested for Lactose Intolerance ?? I do not want them to draw blood as to me this is too traumatic for her.
I have heard from other moms i can just take a stool sample to a laboratory and ask them to do the Lactose Intolerance test. Is this true.

Paediatrician

Yes you can take a stool sample to a pathology laboratory, but the easist way would be to go to your paediatrician and he/she will see that the test is done.
