Sugar Intolerance

Sugar intolerance refers to the inability to properly digest and absorb certain sugars, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort, bloating, and other symptoms. This condition is often genetically determined, resulting from the lack or deficiency of specific enzymes required for sugar digestion. Common forms of sugar intolerance include lactose intolerance and fructose malabsorption. Genetic testing can help identify specific intolerances, allowing individuals to modify their diets accordingly to avoid discomfort and potential nutritional deficiencies. Proper diagnosis and dietary adjustments are essential for managing symptoms and improving quality of life. While not life-threatening, untreated sugar intolerance can significantly impact daily activities and overall well-being.
