BACKGROUND Lactose malabsorption (LM) may be associated with reduced skeletal calcium content. Diagnosis to date has been based on indirect methods, with a high false-negative rate. Identification of the LCT polymorphism led to development of a PCR-based test. AIM To evaluate the PCR-based test compared to a combination the hydrogen breath test and the lactose tolerance test, and investigate anthropometrical differences, changes in bone mineral density and oral calcium intake according to LCT… CONTINUE READING
