How to Diagnose CSID

Diagnosing CSID

Sucrose Intolerance, informally referred to as “Sugar Intolerance,” is a rare disease.

However, there are several ways to determine if your child has CSID. So, if you suspect that your child has Sucrose Intolerance, ask for testing to be done to make sure this rare condition isn’t overlooked or misdiagnosed.
