FructoHelp is a health platform created by an individual named Nick, who shares his knowledge about this impairment. A digestive disorder, Fructose Malabsorption deals with the improper absorption of the fructose sugar inside the small intestine. ‘Fructose’ is a kind of monosaccharide sugar that belongs to the group of carbohydrates that are short-chained, other examples including sorbitol and lactose. Most common fruits and vegetables contain this sugar. The Fructose malabsorption disorder can result in the bloating of the body, and also cause severe cramps and pain.

FructoHelp gives general information about the causes of this malabsorption of fructose by the body. There are two proper ways in which the body digests fructose. In the first way, fructose is absorbed through the length of the small intestine with the help of proteins known as GLUT5. This process, though slow, is fructose-specific. The second process is relatively fast, but it occurs simultaneously with the absorption of glucose sugar. When an individual suffers from the malabsorption of Fructose, the GLUT5 protein is able to cause the absorption of the sugar only to a limited extent, and the remainder of the sugar travels to the colon and ferments rapidly due to the bacteria present in the intestine. This results in the formation of gases like hydrogen, methane and carbon dioxide inside the colon. The proliferation of intestinal yeast and bacterium can further worsen symptoms.

The Facts and Symptoms section of the website explains all about the Fructose Malabsorption symptoms. All the prominent as well as recessive symptoms are listed down as individual points. There is also a Testing section on the webpage where one can look into the diagnosis of the malabsorption. The most useful part of the site is probably the Fructose Malabsorption Diet, which lists out, among others, the Fructan content in common foods, so that one may be able to plan his diet accordingly. It gives users the idea about whether they need to follow a Low Fructose diet, or a completely Fructose free diet in case the body suffers from Fructose malabsorption.

Apart from the general information about this disorder, FructoHelp also has in its website some useful additional help. One can receive a free nutrition guide of 23 pages from the website; to avail this, the person simply needs to sign up on the website with their email id. In case an individual is interested to perform a self examination, he or she could order a hydrogen breath test kit, which can be used at home. Popular posts trending on the website help users make themselves familiar with the ongoing research surrounding this impairment. A number of food-diary applications and Fructose malabsorption drugs are also listed on the website.
