User :   doc last questin
Doctor :   ok
User :   initially doc told my son has got some infection
User :   then persistent diaheria and then lactose intolrence
User :   now again loose motion
User :   its already more than a month now
Doctor :   During infection of the intestines , the superficial cells are destroyed which secret the enzyme called lactase which is helpful for breaking the milk protein called lactose
Doctor :   during loose motions the there is decrease in lactase level
Doctor :   hence there will be no sufficient lactse production by the cells
Doctor :   The lactose in the milk will not be able to get breakdown leading to lactase intolerance
Doctor :   further worsening the loose motions
Doctor :   as i told you it will take time to settle
User :   ok

Doctor :   since the cells which is destroyed should be repaired
User :   ok
Doctor :   any way the loose stools has decreased, no need to worry
