b) 12 months of age
c) 18 months of age
d) 24 months of age
Explanation: Fortunately, most babies outgrow milk allergies by their second year.
8. Low levels of the enzyme lactase may lead to lactose intolerance. Symptoms of lactose intolerance include ALL of the following EXCEPT?
d) Abdominal cramps
Explanation: The symptoms of lactose intolerance typically occur between 30 minutes and two hours after eating or drinking a milk or dairy product, and may include: abdominal cramps, Bloating, gas, diarrhea and nausea.
