Hi, I have a problem with fructose but had no idea what it was. I have come to my own conclusion that my liver doesn't process fructose well. I didn't realise that 1, fructose is processed by the liver, 2, that regular sugar is half fructose and half glucose, 3, corn products ie modified maize starch etc (in masses of foods, filler in medication tablets...) are fructose.
When I ate too much fructose for my system to deal with, these are the symptoms I experienced: nausea, weight on my brain, feeling slow, headache, nasty taste in my mouth, tiredness, vagueness, apathy, felt depressed, needed to pee a lot, my breathing went very slow - I lost the urge to breathe in and I had to go and lie down. After a day or so of eating fructose, I had a feeling that I was being poisoned.
My thoughts on this is that the fructose was acting on my body like alcohol, so with too much I developed a hangover.
This is not the FODMAPS issue, it's fructose itself.
Anyway just a thought.
I have to keep fructose to an absolute minimum - like spinach and kale.
