Fructose intolerance is caused by the lack of an enzyme that helps your body process fructose. Researchers are trying to identify all of the mutations that can cause fructose intolerance, to learn more about the nature of the disease, to gather data on how the disease affects people of different ethnic groups, and to identify possible ways to respond to the missing enzyme. To cure fructose intolerance, you would have to have your gene with the abnormality replaced or the aldolase B enzyme put in the kidney, liver, and intestine. Speak with your doctor if you are interested in participating in clinical trials.
