What is lactose intolerence?

General meaning:Lactose intolerance is results of an inability to digest or to metabolize lactose.due to missing or defective enzymes (inborn error of metabolism)Flow:ingested milk productsbuildup of dissacharides because deficiency of lactase in the intestinal, lactose cant be degraded to galactose and glucosecant be absorbed in to the bloodstream from the villilactose will accumulatedproducing H2, CO2 and organic acids.digestive problems: bloating and diarrheaNote that the common definition for "lactose intolerance" excludes infants. Virtually all human infants (indeed all mammal infants) are able to digest lactose, as it is a key ingredient in gaining sustenance from their mother. Infants not able to digest lactose are much more rare (and is a serious condition).Normally, mammals lose the ability to digest lactose shortly after entering childhood (in humans, somewhere between 3 and 5). However, a mutation in certain human populations somewhere around 20,000 BCE enabled those people to continue to consume milk for their entire life. So, in reality, "lactose tolerance" is the genetic aberration (though, a beneficial one).
