D-lactate, an enantiomer of the common L-lactate, is primarily produced by gut bacteria. When the balance of gut bacteria is disrupted, as seen in conditions such as short bowel syndrome, intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or certain surgical interventions, D-lactate levels can rise abnormally. This elevation can lead to D-lactic acidosis, a condition characterized by an accumulation of D-lactate in the blood, which can lead to neurological symptoms. D-lactate measurements can be used as an indicator of intestinal health and bacterial overgrowth, especially in patients with altered gut anatomy or function. AkrivisBio’s D-Lactate Assay is a simple, sensitive way to measure D-Lactate levels in a variety of biological samples.
