Can Abdominal Pain be the Result of Fructose Intolerance?

Fructose intolerance is common in children with abdominal pain. The condition can be managed with a low‐fructose diet, according to a new study.

The study investigated close to 250 patients with unexplained chronic abdominal pain. Testing determined that more than half of them suffered from fructose intolerance.

According to Science Daily:

“Fructose intolerance is typically diagnosed by exclusion ... once other GI conditions like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are ruled out, a hydrogen breath test is given to the patient.”
