Diagnosis of Lactose Intolerance

The diagnosis of lactose intolerance can be made based on symptom reporting and the response to elimination of dairy products from the diet. However, testing is available to make a complete diagnosis. The following are tests that a physician can administer to determine whether or not a patient is lactose intolerant:

  • Milk Challenge Test
  • Hydrogen Breath Test
  • Lactose Tolerance Test
  • Stool Acidity Test (usually for infants)
  • Intestinal Biopsy

We do not perform all this testing at Granite Peaks Gastroenterology. At the time of your appointment, we will discuss your symptoms and help you decide the best approach. We have offices in Salt Lake and Utah Counties
