I was recently diagnosed with being fructose intolerant after about a year and a half of having major stomach pains, diarrhea and nausea. I am 25-years-old and still want to be able to go out and have fun with my friends. Is there anything that you can drink while having this condition? I have looked on the Internet and there are so many sites with foods you can't eat, which outweigh what you can, but I want to know some things I can eat and some alcoholic beverages that I can have. Thanks for your help!
