lactose intolerance

Can someone become lactose intolerant as they get older. I have noticed lately when I eat certain dairy products sometimes I get stomach cramps and gassy and loose stools. How do I figure out if  have become lactose intolerant.

I don't know how old you are so please don't resent me when I say that a lot of seniors don't realize that they have suddenly become Lactose Intolerant, and don't even bother to mention these symptoms to their doctor since they just figure diarrhea, gas etc. is just part of aging.  Milk in their coffee, milk in cereal. . . just carrying on as usual.

This Lactose Intolerant issue should be made more public.  
I was in my 40's when I began this terrible trek.  It took me more than 20 yrs to decide to do my own research.  Lo and behold.  There's a title for this malady !  LOL  Titles help because it means there are others like us.

It happened to me so I would say it is likely.
