Lactose Intolerance

30 - 50 million people in the U.S. are affected by lactose intolerance.

Caused by the inability or insufficient ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk or milk products, lactose intolerance can cause painful abdominal symptoms such as cramping, bloating, nausea and gas.

Telehealth Appointments Available

All Capital Digestive Care physicians and advanced practice providers are offering "virtual" visits via telehealth. Call your doctor's office to schedule an appointment. For the health and safety of our patients and staff, we are limiting in-office appointments and endoscopy procedures to patients requiring urgent care. We encourage all individuals to practice everyday preventive actions and social-distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
