Fructose intolerance

Fructose intolerance is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations of the aldolase B gene. The disease is characterized by fructosemia and hypoglycemia trat trigger intermittend symptoms such a vomiting. In the the clinical course, liver damage may occur.

Epidemiology

The prevalence is estimated between 1:23,000 and 1:130.000.[Error: Macro 'ref' doesn't exist]

Pathogenesis

As aldolase B is deficient in fructosemia, dietary fructose is metabolized by aldolase A that shows a much slower catabolic rate. Consequentially, fructose inhibits glycolysis and glyconeogenesis (gluconeogenesis) and hypoglycemia may occur. Intermittend cerebral symptoms and chronic liver damage ensue.

Symptoms

Proximal tubular damage syndrome
Fructose intolerance causes unspecific proximal tubular damage called renotubular Fanconi syndrome.

Systematic

Food intolerance
Adult type lactose intolerance
Eosinophil peroxidase deficiency

Fructose malabsorption
Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase deficiency
Fructosuria
Glucose-Galactose Malabsorption
Histamine Intolerance
Lactase deficiency
Lysinuric protein intolerance
