A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Hereditary Fructose Intolerance
I had a question the other day about hereditary fructose intolerance.
Hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI) is an inherited disorder characterized by the inability to digest fructose, or fruit sugar.
In people with HFI, an enzyme is deficient, resulting in an accumulation of fructose in your liver, kidneys, and small intestine.
Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, vomiting, dehydration, convulsions due to low blood sugar, extreme thirst, excessive urination and sweating, loss of appetite, and stunted growth.
Symptoms are made worse by consuming anything containing fruit sugar.
If untreated HFI can result in coma or death.
Early treatment, mainly adopting a fructose-free diet, leads to a normal length and quality of life.
Otherwise, the disorder can lead to serious and permanent damage to your liver and kidneys, and, eventually, death.
Sticking to a diet with no fructose in it can be difficult today.
Fructose is not only in natural fruits, fruit juices, and some vegetables, but it’s also in lots of processed food products.
High-fructose corn syrup, for example, is one of the most common additives listed on food product labels, and it’s present not only in sweet foods.
To deal with hereditary fructose intolerance it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to keep hydrated.
*Begin a diet of fresh vegetables (preferably organic and raw) plus nuts, seeds, grains, and other foods high in fiber.
*Include in your diet chlorella, garlic, and pearl barley. Also add kelp to your diet, in the form of giant red kelp or brown kelp.
*Consume “green drinks” daily. The best contain a wide variety of plants and are organic.
*Avoid animal products, processed foods, sugar, and soda.
*Be sure to get sufficient sleep.
*As much as possible avoid stress.
*Get regular moderate exercise.
*Don’t smoke or consume beverages containing alcohol or caffeine.
*Don’t take any recreational drugs.
