Age Specific Prevalence

Age-Specific prevalence data suggest a progressive decrease in lactose absorption with age in African American children studied in the United States. This progressive decrease was seen in a study of 409 African American children 13 months to 12 years of age. The population was stratified by age to have approximately equal representation in each 12-month category. The mean age of the children studied was 6.6 years.

The children were free of any overt intestinal or allergic disorders and had no recent history of gastroenteritis.
