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
