Overview

Could you be lactose-intolerant?

If you are frequently experiencing digestive discomfort, it may well be because you are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is a very common digestive problem; while this condition is harmless, it can cause a number of unpleasant side-effects such as excessive gas, diarrhea, bloating, and cramps.

This DNA test looks at primary lactose intolerance caused by a genetic variant found most commonly in European population groups. Please note that some intolerance can be caused by injury to the intestines or a very rare congenital disease.

Kit Contents:

  • Easy-to-follow instructions
  • Cheek swabs for DNA collection

The test should not be used for children under the age of 12. This test screens for “primary lactose intolerance” only and is not a diagnostic tool for other types of lactose intolerance.

Details

This DNA test for lactose intolerance helps to determine if you have the gene variant—common in the European population—that causes this condition.

Lactose is found primarily in dairy products, but is also regularly used as an additive in other processed foods. Intolerance is caused by the absence of the enzyme lactase in the small intestine. Lactase is required to breakdown milk sugar molecules. If the molecules are not broken-down, they cannot be absorbed by the intestines and are then processed by intestinal bacteria. As a consequence the individual will then experience the unpleasant symptoms of gas, diarrhea, bloating or cramp.

The Science

The Science

The Science behind the DNA Test for Lactose Intolerance

  • DNA is extracted from your cheek sample and is screened for the genetic variant associated with lactose intolerance in European populations
  • Experienced and highly-trained analysts then prepare a comprehensive report outlining information about your risk for genetically-based lactose intolerance

NOTE: This product screens for “primary lactose intolerance,” which is the most common type. Other types of lactose intolerance (such as “secondary lactose intolerance”) are not diagnosed with this test.
