Help With Getting Info On Fructose Malabsoption/intolerance
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me with finding sources of good information about fructose malabsorption. My natural practitioner thinks that I may have this and I would like to request that my midwife order the hydrogen breath test, but she thinks that all my symptoms are just related to depression and not actual physical symptoms. So, I was hoping to be able to print out some legitimate research that I could bring in to her when I have my appointment on Wednesday.

I have been diagnosed with Celiac for about 20 months now and have tried eliminating all of the most common foods that other celiac sufferers tend to have a hard time with. I also have been on the SCD diet for 9 months and I have had very little - if any - improvement. I know that it's not from CC, because my house is completely gluten free and I call on all my products including toiletries to make sure they are gluten free.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi!

I have fructose intolerance and I had fructose intolerance breathing test. It was positive for me. The technician tested two gases, not just one. She tested me for methanol too. I had only methanol readings high. The technician gave me to drink 1 cup some special liquid and checked my breath every 20 minutes. I asked her how she will know if I have it. She told me that normal people will have spike in readings only ones at the beginning and fructose intolerant will have twice- Second time after 2-3 hours. Which is the truth. I tried to eat apple and I will have bloating twice, second time ( after 2-3 hours) stronger then ever. Maybe you can try to do the same. Or eat pear, or watermelon. You can find out by yourself, if you have it. With fructose malnutrition you can have bloating, gas, even diarrhea which is similar to celiac disease. When I went gluten free I started to react very strongly to fructose. It is possible that you have it too.

I dont have any material about fructose malnutrition or intolerance. I found all information on internet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fructose_malabsorption

and I found this: http://www.cigna.com/healthinfo/nord227.html, which is scary. This is just for heriditery fructose malabsorption.

The single best thing is to join the 'fructose malabsoprtion australia' yahoo group. There you can get access to some recent research papers, including ones that involve scientific explanations of the process and research studies.

The best lists of fructose and fodmap content come from Monash University in Australia, as they are the ones actually testing food. Authors to look out for include Shepderd and Gibson. If there's conflicting info, always go with Monash and Shepherd first, as they are testing and publishing right now. Some of the other information on the net is old and incorrect.

Also, if you search fructose malabsorption here at celiac.com you will find posts from others looking in to the topic.

Yes, look at shepherd works - I happen to live near sues practice in Melbourne Australia. I got dietary advice from her dietitians when I was diagnosed Coeliac and then later with fructose malabsorption and lactose intolerance. Sue was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was studying her masters degree in Dietics.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
