The article focuses on fructose related disorders such as fructose malabsorption (FM), gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease. It says that in FM patients, fructose directly passes to the large intestine where it is fermented by bacteria thus producing gases which can result to abdominal pain, constipation, and bloating in children and teenagers. It also mentions that celiac disease, infection, and lactose intolerance are the prior diagnosis of FM patients.
