Lactose intolerance genetic test
The genetic test indicates the predisposition of an individual to develop a deficiency of lactase (hypolactasia) later in life.
The intolerance is written in the genes!
In 90% of cases, lactose intolerance is due to a variation of DNA: a polymorphism in position 13910, in the regulatory region of the lactase gene. Microgenomics genetic test enables to
distinguish between those who have both normal copies of the gene, some that have only one healthy and those that have both mutated. In first case the subject produces high levels of lactase and therefore are able to digest lactose without any problems; the last case is associated with a lower production of lactase causing a greater difficulty in digesting lactose.
