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.

Thanks you guys! I'll check out those links. :)

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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
