Hi...., Take care with dairy products. If your mother is lactose intolerant, try substituting yogurt for milk. Or use an enzyme product to help break down lactose...Consuming small amounts of milk products or combining them with other foods also may help. In some cases, though, you mother may need to stop eating dairy foods completely. If so, be sure that she will get enough protein, calcium and B vitamins from other sources.....
