2551 - Hereditary fructose intolerance

Material & Volume
  • EDTA Blood, 2ml
  • or oral mucosa (eSwab)
Clinical Information

In hereditary fructose intolerance, a rare enzyme defect, fructose breakdown in the liver is reduced. There is a deficiency of aldolase-B, which leads to an accumulation of fructose-1-phosphate in the liver cells. Instead, only aldolase A is active. This leads to an inhibition of glycolysis, gluconeogenesis and glycogen metabolism, resulting in severe hypoglycaemia. As the condition progresses, severe liver damage up to liver failure occurs.
Note: The clarification of the much more frequent fructose malabsorption (intestinal fructose intolerance) is done with the fructose H2 breath test (see here).
