  • BACKGROUND Fructose malabsorption is characterized by the inability to absorb fructose efficiently. [...] Key MethodRESULTS Depression scores were reduced by 65.2% after 4 weeks of diet (P < 0.0001), and there was a significant reduction of meteorism (P < 0.0001) and stool frequency (P < 0.01).
