This study concerns adults (18 year old & over) who are lactose intolerant. Moreover these persons : professionnal such as medical doctors, dieteticians, nurses and other health practionars may also take part in the study. Health practionars must mention themselves as such. In this case we may suggest them to identify their complete standards (name - surname & e-mail adress) if they answer the questionary for one of their patients.
