Lactard (lactose + retard)

A “lactard” (lactose + retard) is someone who has a sensitivity to foods that contain lactose (such as milk), often requiring a lactose-free diet. “Lactard” is a slang term for someone who is “lactose intolerant.” “Lactard” has been cited in print since at least 2003.
The term “lactard” is usually not derogatory, but some prefer to not use it because “retard” is usually considered to be derogatory.
A similar term to “lactard” is “glutard” (gluten + retard).
Wikipedia: Lactose intolerance
Lactose intolerance, also called lactase deficiency and hypolactasia, is the inability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and to a lesser extent milk-derived dairy products. It is not a disorder as such, but a genetically-determined characteristic.
Lactose intolerant individuals have insufficient levels of lactase, an enzyme that catalyzes hydrolysis of lactose into glucose and galactose, in their digestive system. In most cases this causes symptoms which may include abdominal bloating and cramps, flatulence, diarrhea, nausea, borborygmi (rumbling stomach), or vomiting after consuming significant amounts of lactose. Some studies have produced evidence that milk consumption by lactose intolerant individuals may be a significant cause of inflammatory bowel disease.

What’s In Your Fridge?
Beginning at the bottom shelf and reading from left-to-right (my fridge is not a Hebrew text), you will see Lauren’s orange juice and Lauren’s Lactaid milk. I lied when I said the only normal things are Lauren’s. Lactaid milk is so not normal! Lauren is a lactard.
