Lactose is the main sugar that appears naturally in milk and dairy products. Intestinal lactase is the enzyme that hydrolyzed lactose in galactose and glucose, allowing intestinal absorption
Hypolactasia implies lactase deficiency in the intestinal mucosa.
Lactose intolerance refers to the development of ingestion of milk or milk products gastrointestinal symptoms.
Lactose intolerance refers to the development of gastrointestinal symptoms after milk or dairy products intake.
Lactose intolerance is a cluster of gastrointestinal disorders, diarrhea, abdominal bloating, flatulence, etc that appears when there is a difficulty for the body to digest lactose and other dairy products.
Lactose is the sugar that appears naturally in milk and the body needs an enzyme that is located in the small intestine called Intestinal Lactase to digest it. This enzyme converts lactose into two smaller sugars, glucose and galactose, and allows lactose to be absorbed from the intestine.
Deficiency of intestinal lactase reduces the capacity to digest lactose, so lactose intolerance symptoms appear. Lactose reaches the colon and is fermented.
