Lactose Intolerance Genetic Screening

65% of the world's population are lactose intolerant. Are you one of them? How to find out. Our genetic-based lactose intolerance screening has been independently validated, so you have information you can trust.

Why it’s important to screen for Lactose Intolerance
  • Approximately 65% of the world’s population are lactose intolerant.
  • Approximately 50% of people who are lactose intolerant don’t know they are.
  • The only way to definitively know if you are lactose intolerant is to screen genetically.
  • If you’re lactose intolerant, don’t know it, and continue to have lactose, you’re at increased risk of a wide range of symptoms and health conditions.
  • Being lactose intolerant is associated with poor calcium absorption, increased risk of osteoporosis and autoimmune disease.

  • iDNA Health provides on-going support and has developed a 30-day DNA Diet + Exercise Program. This program supports patients to implement a lactose-free diet, along with any other identified food intolerances, assess their clinical risk and manage the long-term impact of a lactose-free diet on the gut microbiome. Many people do not realise that a lactose-free diet has risks that must be assessed and managed, especially in children. Read about our Children’s Food Intolerances, Allergies + Skin Program.
