Diet High in Fructose May Worsen Inflammatory Bowel Disease

A new study from researchers in Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, USA, finds that a diet with a high content of sugar fructose may significantly worsen inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).Diet High in Fructose May Worsen Inflammatory Bowel Disease

To check the effect of fructose on the gastrointestinal tract, a team of scientists performed a range of experiments on three different mouse models with IBD.

In the first model, a high fructose diet increased the severity of symptoms of the condition. In the second model, a high glucose diet did not have any effect on the inflammation.

The study leader David Montrose, Ph.D., of the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, NY, says: “Our findings provide evidence of a direct link between dietary fructose and IBD and support the concept that high consumption of fructose could worsen disease in people with IBD. This is important because it has the potential to provide guidance on diet choices for IBD patients — something that is currently lacking.”
