Fructose Malabsorption

Just a quick thought... Most of the symptoms you describe can be caused by your hiatal hernia too.

I've been dealing with acid reflux for a long time and the worst reflux pain I experienced was from my hiatal hernia.

Hope you feel better soon!

how did you treat your hiatal hernia?

my problem is that ppis--nexium, protonix, prevacid, pantup relief, etc--do not work, and in fact seem to make it worse.

I just found out that my recent problems with reflux have been from having the hiatal hernia, so by no means am I an expert in what to do, because I am just going down that road for myself. But, my mom and one of my sisters have been dealing with it for a long time now and they are able to pull it out by massaging in a downward motion to the left of the sternum a little bit and starting from right under the ribs pressing downward with firm pressure.

I haven't learned how to do this very well on myself yet, but my five month old baby also has one and am able to get his to go back into place by either doing what I described above or by massaging his tummy in a clock wise circle.

If you aren't sure where your hernia is gently feel where the sternum and start feeling below that and toward the left side and if you feel a tender spot that is probably where the hernia is and you can start massaging it downward. It might be possible that the hernia could be a little toward the right side instead, but I just don't know enough about it to say for sure.

The idea with massaging the hernia out is that if you can get it back into place when it comes out, after a while your muscles will get stronger and be able to stay together so that you won't get it anymore - or at least not as often.

I have not tried any drugs for this problem and have only seen a natural practitioner for this problem, but so far this approach has helped my infant and mother and sister.

I hope that all made sense, but if not I'll try to answer any questions the best I can. :)

I just thought of another way to help your hernia. If you can find a really good chiropractor, they should be able to put the hernia back in place and show you ways to help it stay where it should.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to give advice here. I was quite sure I had fructose malabsorption issues because of gas and fatigue when eating foods on the "foods to avoid" list. Then I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. When researching on the web, I discovered that one medical expert had the opinion that fructose malabsorption was caused by severe hypoglycemia. I thought this could be possible for me.

oh, just a note to say I'm back eating sugar and fruits again, and noticing no differences. this is obviously not my problem. my problem is I think, low stomach acid and bad balance of bacteria, because my reflux was greatly reduced when I started supplementing HCl and probiotics

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
