Your doctor will use one of these tests:
Blood and Breath Tests
You will drink a sweet drink with lactose in it.
Then, your doctor
will test your breath or blood for signs that you did or did not
digest the lactose.
Your doctor can also find out if you digest lactose by testing your
stool (bowel movement).
The stool test is often used to check babies
for lactose intolerance.
