Dietary adjustment is the primary form of therapy for patients with lactose intolerance. Advise patients to reduce or restrict products containing lactose. Beyond avoiding obvious milk-containing products, patients should be made aware of other foods that can trigger symptoms. These include processed meats (eg, hot dogs, sausages, deli meats), various breads, salad dressing, margarine, certain cereals, and some processed potatoes.
