Health Tip: If You Have Fructose Intolerance
(HealthDay News) -- Fructose is a natural sugar found in many foods, and it's added to many others. Some people have trouble digesting fructose -- a condition called fructose intolerance.
The American Gastroenterological Association suggests how to help manage fructose intolerance:
Limit intake of dried fruits, fresh fruits and fruit juices.
Limit high fructose corn syrup, found in sodas and other drinks.
Keep a food diary, logging what you ate and any symptoms. This will help determine how much fructose you can safely handle.
Limit drinking alcohol.
Limit consumption of honey.
