  • ingestion of lactose
  • In lactase-deficient patients, some of the carbohydrates reaching the colon can be metabolized by bacteria into short-chain fatty acids and absorbed, but the net result of ingestion of lactose is a substantial rise in fluid and gas in the bowel. (aafp.org)
  • gastrointestinal
  • Self-diagnosis and the diagnosis made by physicians - sorry to say so - as an easy way out for all kinds of functional gastrointestinal disorders have become so common that one has to develop some reservations. (biestmilch.com)
  • In addition to increasing the volume and fluidity of the gastrointestinal contents, unabsorbed lactose entering the colon is affected by bacteria. (aafp.org)
  • differential diagnosis
  • This case emphasises that neurosyphilis still has to be considered in the differential diagnosis within the context of psychiatric conditions and diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • The differential diagnosis for elevated galactose concentrations in blood on a newborn screening result can include other disorders of galactose metabolism, including galactokinase deficiency and galactose epimerase deficiency. (wikipedia.org)
  • gluten
  • If you do not plan to have an endoscopy, you need to go on a strict gluten-free diet and dairy-free, too, if you have lactose issues. (celiac.com)
  • physiological
  • It is used in sweets, confectionery and sausages because of its physiological properties: lactose provides a good texture and binds water and color. (biestmilch.com)
  • gene
  • The LCT gene provides the instructions for making lactase. (wikipedia.org)
  • MCM6 contains two of the regulatory regions for LCT, the gene encoding the protein lactase, located in two of the MCM6 introns, approximately 14 kb (-13910) and 22 kb (-22018) upstream of LCT. (wikipedia.org)
  • Protein
  • Detection of the disorder through newborn screening (NBS) does not depend on protein or lactose ingestion, and, therefore, it should be identified on the first specimen unless the infant has been transfused. (wikipedia.org)
  • infants
  • citation needed] Infants are routinely screened for galactosemia in the United States, and the diagnosis is made while the person is still an infant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fewer than 5% of infants who cry excessively turn out to have an underlying organic disease, such as constipation, gastroesophageal reflux disease, lactose intolerance, anal fissures, subdural hematomas, or infantile migraine. (wikipedia.org)
