DB13761TilactaseTilactase is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of lactose intolerance in infants and older patients requiring a parenteral nutrition or fluid diet.[L2338] Lactose intolerance occurs when there is an existence of an inability to break down lactose which is commonly found in dairy products. This inability occurs when the lactase levels are reduced and thus there is no via to digest and break down the lactose. The undigested lactose moves into the large intestine where normal flora bacteria can interact with it and cause bloating, gas and diarrhea.[A32592]
