Digestive Issues: Fructose Malabsorption, formerly known as “dietary fructose intolerance” (DFI), is a common digestive disorder that occurs due to improper absorption of fructose (and other sugars like lactose or sorbitol) in the small intestine. What results is an increased concentration of fructose in the entire intestinal tract. About 30-40% of people suffer from F.M. That’s a lot!!
How To Treat it? Removing fructose from your diet can eliminate all symptoms and restore normal digestion, with health and wellbeing returning. After you have been symptom-free for about 3 months, you can gradually re-introduce small amounts of many of the whole foods that previously caused problems, one at a time. No need to re-introduce high fructose corn syrup or refined sugar of any kind. A good probiotic will naturally very beneficial also. Fructose Malabsorption can be healed, but avoid repeating the patterns that potentially caused the problem in the first place – refined sugar.
