Of 110 cases having watery diarrhea, sugar intolerance was observed in 75 s~jects (68%), maff~vity of whom (97%) were below 2 years. While nutritional status was not ass~iated with the occarrence of sugar baolerance, children from rural areas had a higher incidence than urban childrem Stools in children with sugar intolerance were watery, moderate to large in qaantity, often explosive with a sow odour, had a pH of 6 or less and were positive for sugar. Lactose with 8alactose and/or glaca~e were the most common sugars on stool chromatography, occurring in 56% of the cases. All 75 cases of sugar intolerance had monosaccharides in stool chromatograms. Chromatography often was m~ helpful in pinpointing the offending sugar and did not correlate well with clinical r ~ . Among children with sugar intolerance continued on breast or cow's milk (control diet) thirds responded, and the remaining responded to lactose-free milk (LFM), LFM was fo~d effectice in cases with sugar baggeranc~. Failures to it were due to feeding of breast or cow's milk. LFM was required for 3-4 days for controlling diarrhea Failures to control diet had a significantly longer duration of intravenoas fl~d treatment and hospital stay than re,wonders. Howecer, as j~we to respond to control diet cannot be predicted at the time of admission, use of lactose-free~ may be indicated for the routine treatment of sugar intolerance,
