Disaccharides are made of two simple sugars, Sucrose and Maltose. Sucrose is broken down into glucose and another common sugar, fructose, and fructose is broken down, and maltose is broken down into two glucose molecules. People with congenital sucrose and maltose deficiency are unable to break down the sugars sucrose and maltose, as well as other substances made from these sugar molecules. An affected child will typically experience stomach cramps, bloating, excess gas production, and diarrhea after ingestion of sucrose or maltose. As they get older, most affected children are better able to tolerate sucrose and maltose.
