About the webinar:
Patients who struggle to digest dairy could be lactose intolerant or, in some cases, sensitive to A1 beta-casein protein – a type of protein found in cows’ milk. The good news is there may be options you could try for these patients which don’t have to involve cutting out dairy altogether. Join Dr Joanna McMillan in this upcoming webinar to learn about lactose intolerance and other reasons dairy foods may be associated with digestive discomfort in some people. Joanna will also delve into how to manage digestive discomfort after dairy consumption and what it means for clinical practice.
