A growing number of people are being diagnosed with fructose malabsorption.
The diagnoses usually comes after a long period of suffering from gastrointecintal symptoms as a result of consuming foods that are high in fructose.
But converting to a fructose free lifestyle can be very challenging.
I thought I'd put together a list of all the best low FODMAP diets that you can find online and print out to hang on the fridge!
My personal favourite food list to hand out to friends and family is the one from the IBS Group (see the review below) - http://www.ibsgroup.org/brochures/fodmap-intolerances.pdf
You may be aware of the fact that the excessive consumption of sugar or fructose can be dangerous for your bodies metabolism.
People can even gain problems like diabetes from eating fructose in small amounts, but they can be overloaded with sugar by eating a high-fat diet as they typically contain an abundance of refined sugars, which can be harmful for you.
If you are experiencing symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, your doctor may have scheduled you to take a hydrogen breath test.
The hydrogen breath test can be used to diagnose food allergies, such as lactose intolerance and fructose malabsorption, as well as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
I've collected for your a bunch of resources where Dr Oz talks about Fructose Malabsorption. Enjoy!
Actually from way back in the day when he was on the Oprah Winfrey show in 2006. Dr Oz talks about High Fructose Corn Syrup as the #2 ingredients you shouldn't eat.
