Four cases of long-standing diarrhoea and colic pains cured by fructose-free diet--a pathogenetic discussion.


Four patients with a long history of abdominal swelling, colic pains and diarrhoea were cured by a fructose-free diet. They were all given an oral load of (14C) fructose and their expiratory excretion of 14CO2 was found to be significantly lower than that of control patients with similar symptoms. It is concluded taht the patients cured by a fructose-free diet might have a partial fructose malabsorption.
