MCGILLIVRAY1 has suggested that lactose intolerance in Asians is limited to “selected groups of adult students in unfamiliar surroundings” (studying abroad) and that it is “a rare condition which must be seen against the background of malnutrition”. 

INCIDENCE AND AETIOLOGY OF LACTOSE INTOLERANCE

TLDR
These investigations are in the nature of a pilot survey preliminary to a fuller study, and the conclusions reached must necessarily be tentative.

Lactose intolerance in North and South

A multicenter study was carried out in India to determine the incidence of lactose intolerance in healthy volunteers from different parts of the country. The incidence was found to be 66.6% in the

Hypolactasia & lactose intolerance among three ethnic groups in Malaysia.

TLDR
There was no clear association between hypolactasia and gastrointestinal symptoms in all the study groups, however, the lactose intolerance was high in allthe study groups indicating the increasing demand for low lactose dairy products in the Asian countries.

Lactose Tolerance in Asians: a Family Study

TLDR
This survey in northern Thailand found that the only adult Thai with lactose tolerance came from Ayuthaya Province, approximately 70 km north of Bangkok, and no lactase induction has been found in individuals with lactase intolerance after either prolonged daily intake of fresh milk3 or daily intake for a month.

Clinical picture of hypolactasia and lactose intolerance.

TLDR
It is shown that adult-type primary hypolactasia and selective lactose malabsorption represent a major problem in the everyday work of general practitioners, particularly in populations where hypolACTasia is common.

Milk and Lactose Intolerance in Healthy Orientals

TLDR
Many Orientals therefore may have a genetically determined lactase deficiency that may lead to intolerance to milk, and the bulk of the world's adult population is probably intolerant to milk.

Rapid Specific Method for Determination of Aldosaccharides in Body Fluids

TLDR
A coupling reaction was worked out utilizing the conjugation of aldoses and ketoses with meta-aminophenol in acetic acid to avoid the non-specific reduction methods for glucose determinations.
