Fructose Malbsorption, Light Bulb Moment Again, Drats!

All this time I knew I had a problem with sugar, apples, bananas, squash, splenda, aspartame, etc. Just thought it was problems with going gluten free. I have seen mention on here many a time about fructose malabsorption and foodmap stuff. Never really paid it any attention until last night when I decided to google it. Like I said, light bulb moment.

Now, I understand why some foods are still messing with me. So here we go again, with another tweaking. But this time I know what i'm doing and looking for. Nothing like practise. Lol.

Bummer, though I'm glad you figured it out. You might like the Yahoo! FM group.

This is a pretty good resource too, by one of the group moderators.

I know how frustrating that is. The same thing happened to me not long after I went gluten free a few years ago. I couldn't eat ANY fruit or any sugar in any form. However, after I completely cut out sugar and fructose for close to a year, I began to be able to eat bananas (don't know why bananas didn't affect me as much) and as my gut healed (I guess), I was able to eat some other fruits again. It has now been about two years since I had any non-fruit sugar, but this past summer I was able to eat a huge bowl of watermelon, canteloupe, kiwi, and grapes every single day with no adverse effects. I still can't eat most fruits that have the skins on (like apples, etc.) because they are harder to digest, but very happily, my fructose problem seems to be manageable. I don't know if this will happen for you, but maybe try cutting out all sugar and stay off the non-fruit sugar long-term if not permanently, if you think it's worth a try. Agave once in a while has been possible for me, as it has a lower glycemic index and is more natural, whereas just a tiny sugar cube affects me as badly as gluten does. Good luck and I hope you will be able to enjoy fruit again!

gleegan- bananas actually can be tolerable with fructose malabsorption- as long as they're more ripe. still im only eating 1/2 a banana at a time.

also- your post gives me hope that in less than a year from now, my fructose issues could get better.

That makes sense since I don't like bananas that are not ripe (I always avoid them if they have ANY green). Thanks for explaining that. Yes, please don't lose hope. As frustrating as it can be to find out there's a new thing we can't have, I have definitely been able to reintegrate things that I thought were gone for good. Sugar overload seems to be a common thing - maybe your body, once recovered, will be able to handle fruit again. :)

I have issues with fructose and fructans too. My fructose test came back negative but I'm sticking to the fodmap diet because I feel better. I had SIBO which exasperated all of my issues. I can have a tiny bit of cooked apple, coconut milk and lemon and lime. That's it for fruit. I can't tolerate any onions, shallots, garlic, scallions, or asparagus. I can have tomato sauce once a week and only one serving, say on spaghetti or pizza. Any more than that and my esophagus flares up and I have heartburn for days. Salad kills me. I can have well cooked corn, potatoes, carrots, green beans, beans, and squash. It feels really weird not to eat fruit and veggies (as well as no gluten, soy or lactose) but I feel so much better. I've always eaten a ton of veggies for variety and nutrition so I feel like I'm being bad. I haven't touched any stone fruits since May and there's a lot of veggies I haven't tried too. Even though what I eat is limited it just feels good not to be in pain. It's wroth trying if you have tried everything else.

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
