fructose intolerance

Many patients with unexplained gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms have a condition called fructose intolerance. Hydrogen testing for fructose intolerance is now an important medical test for physicians to use to diagnose distressed gastrointestinal symptoms. Breathe E-Z Systems’ HBT Sleuth hydrogen breath test is a precision medical instrument developed for efficient and reliable detection of fructose intolerance.

Fructose intolerance is a relatively new medical disorder where the body is unable to properly digest fructose, a sugar found in food. Fructose intolerance occurs due to the body’s lack of fructase, which is an enzyme normally produced by the small intestine. After consumption of foods containing fructose, the patient experiences cramping, bloating, gas or diarrhea.
