Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

There's currently no way to boost your body's production of lactase, but you can usually avoid the discomfort of lactose intolerance by:

  • Avoiding large servings of milk and other dairy products
  • Including small servings of dairy products in your regular meals
  • Eating and drinking lactose-reduced ice cream and milk
  • Drinking regular milk after you add a liquid or powder to it to break down the lactose
