  1. Vitamin D is important for your health, but most people do not get enough of it. For this reason, taking Vitamin D supplements is very common. Although rare, it is possible for a person to reach toxic levels of vitamin D because it is not soluble in your bloodstream and is thus difficult to remove from the body.

  4. How could this explain why Vitamin D overdose can occur?

  1. In class we discussed how lactose intolerance is the result of individuals not producing enough lactase to digest the disaccharide lactose into the monosaccharides glucose and galactose.

Does the medication Lactaid, which supplies an individual’s intestines with lactase, require or release energy? What about water? What kind of bond is the lactase breaking or forming? What functional group is formed after lactase performs its job?
