Lactose Intolerance — Test Data
Lactose is broken down in the small intestine with the enzyme Lactase phlorizin hydrolase (LPH), also known as lactase. If there is a lactase deficiency, the absence of the enzyme is typically due to a hereditary genetic variation. With our lactose intolerance test, you will learn whether you possess the genetic variant that can cause lactase deficiency in people of European ancestry.
