Essential Fructosuria is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder that is caused by a deficiency of fructokinase (See Fructose Metabolism - coming soon!).

Essential fructosuria is a benign condition characterized by the presence of fructose in the urine. On laboratory analysis of urine samples, a reducing substance (fructose sugar) is found in the urine despite a negative urine dipstick (no glucose in urine).
