My 6-year-old daughter has Fructose Malabsorption, confirmed with a hydrogen breath test when she was 4-1/2. I have started a Facebook group called Parents of FructMal Kids - Fructose Malabsorption USA. It is a closed group, just send a request to join. We'd love to have you join us!

My daughter Sarah is almost 8 and was diagnosed when she was 2 after and EGD, and colonoscopy (yikes). She had diarrhea for 6 weeks after a GI virus, I was giving her Sunny D, and Gastorade. It was my Mom who picked up on the high fructose content in both of those. If she eats any thing with fructose, including a lot of fresh fruit, she has diarrhea. I think I need to investigate for furthur symptoms, though. Not sure what is fructose intolerance, or normal 8 yr old girl behavior!!

My daughter is 2 1/2 and gets horrible diahrea with fructose or sorbitol. We are still not sure what exactly the cause but cutting out fructose seems to really help. She is still having problems and we have recently cut out gluten also to see if that helps. There could be fructose malabsorbtion too.

Ahh ok no problem :) my daughter is only 7 months so time will tell. I do have a 15 year old cousin who has sugar intolerance and becomes a demon if he's had too much but I reckon that's different to your child's situation. Good luck.
