Hello Desi, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted with further pediatricians? Low lactose milk (low lactose milk) is formula milk with a low lactose content. This milk is usually given to babies who have lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is a digestive disorder caused by the digestive tract that cannot break down the lactose contained in milk because the body does not produce enough lactase enzymes. Normally, the body produces the enzyme lactase to break down lactose that enters the body into glucose and galactose so that it can be absorbed by the body for use as an energy source. If lactose cannot be broken down, lactose will accumulate in the intestine and can be fermented by bacteria causing symptoms, one of which is diarrhea. However, diarrhea in children is not always caused by lactose intolerance, but can also be caused by intestinal infections or cow's milk allergy. However, there are some doctors who do recommend replacing milk with LLM if the child has diarrhea, regardless of whatever the cause. As long as there is a clear indication that your child is experiencing lactose intolerance, then it is okay to give LLM. However, the problem is you still don't know the exact cause of this diarrhea. The best step is to consult with a pediatrician further about your child's symptoms. The doctor needs to get more information about your child's symptoms, examine your child, and if necessary do other tests such as fecal acidity. Further treatment will be determined by the doctor in accordance with the results of the examination. For now, please take care of your milk intake for your child. Don't forget to always monitor your child's weight every month.
I hope this helps.
