Explain about the Carbohydrate Malabsorption?

Carbohydrates malabsorption is usually caused by an inherited or acquired (in intestinal infection, celiac disease, PEM) defect in the brush border oligosaccharidases, the most common being 'lactose intolerance'. In such individuals, ingestion of lactose leads to passage of the sugar to the large bowel, where it is fermented to produce short chain fatty acids (SCFA) and gases. In humans, lactase activity declines as individuals grow.
