Digestive issues are not only challenging to talk about but can also be tough to diagnose. Genovate is here to help you solve your gastrointestinal problem once and forever. The DNA Lactose Intolerance test is one of the most popular tests in Genovate’s food sensitivities panel.
- DNA Lactose Intolerance Test ($149; genovate.com)
DNA changes are the strongest predictor of lactose intolerance. This test can determine whether your body can digest the milk sugar lactose.
Once you purchase the Genovate kit, you will receive a set of swabs to collect your DNA and a pre-paid return envelope to easily send back your DNA to the lab. Around 7 to 10 business days after your test is received in the lab, you will be able to view your results online to uncover if your digestive issues may be due to lactose.
Your DNA report will provide you with genetic insight on whether you carry the genetic variations that give people the ability to keep digesting lactose into adulthood (lactase persistent). Almost 65% of people around the world are lactose intolerant to some degree, and you could be one of them.
Genovate also offers other actionable genetic tests that focus on health and wellness, lifestyle, and ancestry. You can find them in our science store or visit Genovate to find more information.
