Alactasia is an autosomal disorder, and so it is hereditary. People with close relatives with Alactasia have a higher chance of having it than people who have no relatives with it. Also as people grow older their lactase has a higher chance of becoming deficient, so it can also be gotten through age.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Also known as lactose intolerant. It is caused by a deficiency of lactase. An enzyme called lactase is used to break down lactose, which is often found in dairy prodects, however, people with Alactasia don't have enough lactase and so cannot break down foods with lactose in it.

The treatment methods for Alactasia is very straitforward. Avoid foods with lactose in it.
