I thought i'd start a links page for fructose sensitive people.Some of the links are for HFI (hereditory fructose intolerance but I thought Id include them because I know how much they helped me...)A Couple of diets, ( the second seems less restrictive) http://www.bu.edu/aldolase/HFI/treatment/ A list of foods which also covers types of sugar allowed! http://www.hfi.ch/index.thtml/en/diet/ Only just found excellent website list sugar in depth, alcohols and the basics. Also gives a fruit intake plan (well a very brief one anyway) http://www.uihc.uiowa.edu/FRUCTOSE/DietBasics.htm I have another for people only slightly sensitive to fructose, I will post it when i get back to Uni...Hope this helps any newcomers or people struggling to find a trigger that seems to be in everything (cos i've been there)- P.S. I have IBS with a fructose trigger, I drink two litres of water a day and it makes such a difference to the C, where as cutting fructose down helps with the D.POST any good listings of beverages (especially alcohol)

Good links, thanks. The really restrictive diets are for people with genetic fructose problems - for them, fructose is absorbed into the blood ok, but is not metabolized properly, and can cause serious problems like mental retardation and even death. Adults with fructose malabsorption can generally tolerate some fructose. They key is to go a week or so on as low a fructose diet as possible to find out if fructose is causing your problems, and if fructose is a problem, adjust your diet so that you don't have D or gas, but get good nutrition by including as many fruits and veggies as your gut can tolerate. It worked for me, hope it works for you. Calcium was helpful before I cut the fructose.
