Sugar-Lactose Intolerance

ViennalabThe easy way to test for Sugar Intolerance using established innovations in diagnostics.

Many people do not have the nescessary  enzymes in sufficient quantities to digest lactose and fructose. Viennalab assays identify the most frequent genetic variations responsible for sugar intolerance.

  • Sugar intolerance is caused by mutations in the genes for metabolic enzymes or transporters, e.g. the LCT or Aldolase B genes.
  • Common symptoms include abdominal bloating and pain, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, flatulence and hypoglycaemia.
  • Fructose intolerance may ultimately lead to death due to liver and kidney damage

The ViennaLab Sugar Intolerance StripAssays®
• are based on reverse-hybridization of biotinylated PCR products
• combine probes for mutations and controls in a parallel array of allele-specific oligonucleotides
• work with immobilized oligos on a teststrip
• show mutations by enzymatic color reaction easily visible to the naked eye
