E73.0 Congenital lactase deficiency
E73.1 Secondary lactase deficiency
E73.8 Other lactose intolerance
E73.9 Lactose intolerance, unspecified

E73.8 would be for a defined lactose intolerance not listed. E73.9 would be for lactose intolerance which has not been specified enough for you to choose any of the other options.
