Tongue-tie and lactose intolerance

Tongue-tie and lactose intolerance

Lactose intolerance is a digestive disorder characterized by difficulty digesting lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products.

 Lactose intolerance can cause symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, and abdominal pain after consuming dairy products.

There is some evidence to suggest that tongue-tie may be associated with lactose intolerance, particularly in infants. 

For example, a study found that infants with tongue-tie were more likely to have lactose intolerance than infants without tongue-tie.

 This may be due to difficulties with breastfeeding and swallowing associated with tongue-tie, which can lead to ingestion of larger amounts of lactose and an increased risk of lactose intolerance.

However, it is important to note that tongue-tie and lactose intolerance are two separate conditions that may co-occur in some individuals. 

A healthcare professional with expertise in both conditions can help determine if a person has both tongue-tie and lactose intolerance and provide appropriate treatment.
