There is no cure for fructose intolerance, but doctors have identified the gene that causes it. You can be tested to determine if you are a carrier and what your odds may be of passing the disease to your children. If you have fructose intolerance, you can minimize your symptoms by avoiding foods that contain fructose. Try to avoid sugar, soft drinks, desserts, and fruits like cherries, apples, grapes, and pears.
