Less known cause of puffiness

Fresh fruits contain a lot of vitamins and minerals, but also a lot of fiber, so they contribute to the healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. However, in the case of fructose intolerance, their consumption is recommended only in fats.

The sweet taste of fruits is the fruit sugar, also known as fructose. "A fructose, together with a molecule of glucose, forms a double sugar called saccharose, which is broken down in the body by an enzyme called saccharose," explains dr. Edit Hidvégi, gastroenterologist of the Buda Allergy Center. "Some people lack this enzyme, and so the degradation of saccharose fructose and glucose cannot go away. after eating foods with fructose, you may experience stomach upset, flatulence and diarrhea. "A common symptom of fructose malabsorption may still be Arrangements for post-early check-in, increased mobility, associated sound phenomena, moribundity, fatigue, headache, tension, frustration, decrease in concentration And also muscle spasms.Fruit sugar can also cause stomach upset and bloating

It can also be applied to young children

because a deficiency of the saccharose enzyme, symptoms of fructose malabsorption can often be observed around the age of half a year, with the onset of nutrition. The most common symptom at this age is stomach, diarrhea. Children over time combine this food with unpleasant side effects and may not be willing to accept fruits and juices for this reason. However, in the case of malabsorption, not only the fruits but also the crystalline sugar used for sweetening can cause stomach upset. It is important that you do not overeat the food in such cases, as severe diarrhea can even lead to an outbreak!

Exams and diet

Disturbance of fructose absorption can be determined by an H2 load test. Avoiding high levels of saccharose and fructose in the treatment is a priority. Therapy is always tailored, and the duration of the diet depends on the reasons it is chosen, whether it is due to a morbid saccharose disorder or a complex malformation of the mucous membrane. Which because of its high content of fructose, it is clearly forbidden: apple, pear, quince, fig and grape. In everyday use, crystalline sugar, powdered sugar contains cane sugar, some of which is fructose, so this, too, should be avoided.Source: Buda Allergy CenterAlso worth reading:
