Research findings could pave way for a fructose tolerance test

13 octubre 2014

The FGF21 hormone may be a reliable predictor of altered fructose metabolism and provide the basis for a «fructose tolerance test,» researchers report. Determining the body’s metabolic response to fructose has been a difficult task, researchers say and consequently, there is no equivalent test to warn of impaired or altered fructose metabolism. That may soon change, thanks to new research.
