One of the major problems with lactose intolerance is the possibility of calcium deficiency, which can lead to osteoporosis. Milk and milk products are among the best source of calcium in the diet, and the body uses this mineral to form strong bones and teeth. Without enough, the bones can become porous and brittle, increasing the risk for breaks, especially in those who have small, thin frames and certain ethnic groups. It is important that the person who is lactose intolerant supplement their calcium so that they do not increase their risk of osteoporosis. In some people, supplementing the enzyme lactase can be beneficial and allow the person to ingest some milk products without producing symptoms.
