Fructose Malabsorption

Fructose is one of the sugars that forms the Low FODMAP diet.

Fructose is a naturally occurring sugar. In some people, excess fructose is poorly absorbed and can cause gut symptoms.

How can we help?

Some individuals may have breath testing to help identify food intolerance associated irritable bowel syndrome. We recommend you see us first as these breath tests are expensive, and research has demonstrated that the sugars that are breath tested can induce symptoms even in people who have negative breath tests. Our dietitians are experts in fructose and other FODMAPs and their effect on the gut. They can help you determine your dietary triggers and guide you on appropriate dietary change.
