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.
