My Support Groups:
So, if I'm reading this report correctly, someone with an indeterminate form of IBD who displays Lactose Malabsorption is statistically more likely to have CD than just a form of Colitis; though it still MAY be just a form of Colitis. Right?

It seems so, as it appears the upper in the digestive system you have Crohn's the more Lactose Malabsorption you have. But I guess from this study, a Lactose free diet makes sense if you have Crohn's.
