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.

Lactose intolerance

Lactose is a type of disacutant contained in milk and dairy products. The enzyme lactase in the mucosa of the small intestine is responsible for its proper digestion. One reason for the absence or deficiency of this enzyme is genetic conditionality. Problems tend to increase with age, but there are also cases of intolerance in newborns-in such cases the change of natural milk to lactose-free milk is recommended.

What are the symptoms of intolerance?

Symptoms of lactose intolerance can be felt from 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and are associated with problems with the digestive system. The most common include abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, coals, flatulence or gases.

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

The digestion of lactose in the body is influenced by the MCM6 gene. MCM6 affects the action of the LCT gene, which determines the concentration of lactase in the body. Depending on the variant of the MCM6 gene in the human body, a specific level of the enzyme lactase is produced. Studies indicate that in most people the amount of lactase decreases with age, however some genetic variants allow the digestion of lactose without unwanted symptoms regardless of age.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

A study on lactose intolerance can be performed by anyone who has noticed symptoms after ingestion of dairy products. The Test can also be performed in neonates and young children.

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.
