My son of 9 years old maybe lactose intolerance. He saw a pediatric GI doctor who wants to perform an endoscopy to confirm this diagnosis. I have looked it up online such as webMD and the tests for lactose intolerance listed are much less evasive. They list a breath test, blood glucose test, stool acidity test, and a lactose test. I am very leary of putting my son through an endoscopy if it is not necessary. Does anyone have any info please??Answer Question

I have no idea but here is a bump for ya! Good luck, hopefully something better can be done! I'm pretty sure I'm lactose intolerant because dairy products make me really sick, but I haven't been to a doc for it. I hope they can do something to help him because it sucks not being able to eat ice cream without conseqences, especially for a kid lol. Take care!
