COVID-19 Tests



Food intolerances or allergies often lead to chronic inflammatory conditions responsible for many diseases. Most immune cells are located in the gastrointestinal tract and consuming intolerable foods can mislead them, thus weaking the immune system and increasing susceptions to serious illness. Therefore, it is important to take care of the correct diet and to exclude or limit all harmful factors in it.

Many food hypersensitivity is genetically determined and an appropriate study allows identification of individual predispositions of the organism in question to a specific disorder. By knowing the results of such a study, you can change your lifestyle accordingly and minimize or eliminate the risk of symptoms altogether.

Fructose intolerance

Fructose is otherwise a fruit sugar processed by the human body. Fructose intolerance, known as frucosemia, is an inherited condition involving problems with fructose absorption. It leads to a reduction in the amount or the total absence of the fructose-1-phosphate enzyme responsible for the breakdown of the fraction in the liver.

Symptoms of intolerance

Fructemia accompanies people troughout their lives, and its symptoms can appear as early as childbearing, when products containing fructose or sucrose are introduced into the diet. The most common symptoms include severe hypoglycemia, which manifests as apathy, drowfulness, frequent convulsants and fainting. In addition, vomiting is observed, enlarged liver, jaundice, hemorrhages, and even signs of urinary tract infection. If the infant does not tolerate fructose, its administration may manifest as anorexic and delayed development.

What genes are analysed in the study and what do they influence?

Fructose is closely related to THE ALDOB gene. This gene is responsible for the formation of the enzyme aldolase B, which breaks down the fructose in the liver. Changes in the gene can lead to a decrease in the effectiveness of the enzyme. The effect of reduced activity of aldolase B is the accumulation of undigested fructose residues in the liver cells. The accumulation of these compounds can over time achieve a level of toxicity to the liver, resulting in impaired its function. Fructose is a disease inherited from both parents and requires two copies of the ALDOB gene in which an undesirable variant occurs.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

The study is recommended not only for people who want to take care of their health and improve the quality of their lives, but also for those who are trying to get offspring, because the mutation of the ALDOB gene can be passed on to children and thus increase their risk of developing.

Can I donate this study to someone?'

You can transfer/donate selected studies to another person. You just need to enter the box names for each of the selected products when completing your order after entering your shipping address. By giving different names of boxes (e.g. 1-my, 2-for-mum) You can create test kits for both yourself and the people you want to donate GeneMe study to.

It is also worth remembering that:

Each successive test within one SWAT (i.e. one box) is awarded for 50% of the price.
We send your entire order to one of the specified addresses to send the boxes in different places to separate orders.
