The patient friendly solution to lactose intolerance testing
The Lactose intolerance is usually tested with a drink containing lactose. After two hours a blood sample will be taken to measure how much glucose is in the blood. If the blood glucose level does not rise, this means that the body is not digesting or absorbing lactose. This way of analyzing the lactose tolerance is very patient unfriendly.
A better solution would be to just take blood sample and run a molecular test. ViennaLab offers a LCT RealFast Assay. This PCR test tests on the LCT 13910C>T mutation.
Unique features of the RealFast Assays
The RealFast Assays from ViennaLab are a great product line. All RealFast assays can be combined in the same thermocylcer. This because the thermocycling program is identical for all RealFast Assays. this way the Lactose intolerance test can be combined with tests like HFE, FV and FII(PTH).
