Difference Between LLF (Low Lactose Formula) Milk And LLM (Low Lactose Milk) Milk?
Afternoon .. my child is only 1 month. Yesterday it was not long ago of diarrhea and was advised by the doctor to replace milk that is llf. Can llf milk be consumed long-term? And what is the difference between llf and llm milk.
Good evening Dwi Mestyan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
LLF (Low Lactose Formula) milk and LLM (Low Lactose Milk) milk are basically the same, namely formula milk that is specially made so that the lactose content in it is low or can be made completely lactose free.
Lactose is a form of carbohydrate that is always found in ordinary formula milk, so if the doctor recommends to replace your child's milk into LLF / LLM milk, chances are the diarrhea experienced by your child is caused by intolerance (unable to digest) existing lactose in ordinary formula milk, so as to help reduce and prevent diarrhea from reoccurring by avoiding lactose.
For its own use can be given long term and generally will not give side effects. If it is true that your child is suffering from lactose intolerance, giving LLF / LLM milk onwards is far better than regular formula milk containing lactose which is quite a lot because it can cause diarrhea in your child.
If complaints of diarrhea in your child do not change or increase with the replacement of milk, it is highly recommended to immediately bring your child back to the doctor for a re-examination of his condition.
I hope this helps.
