How do I begin on a fructose reduced/free diet? Also, is it possible that these lactose and fructose intolerances will go away if I go off the offending foods for a while?
Thanks so much.

Have you tried digestive enzymes with meals? It maybe a stage of healing you're going through (I went through a gassy/bloaty phase).

Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

I've found it is still a bit trial and error as not all foods listed as 'safe' are suitable for me personally but it has helped a lot once you figure out the main culprits of the bloating.

I think berries and really ripe bananas are supposed to be pretty good. I found your post looking for my own information on fructose intolerance. How is it that we're randomly having this problem after 6 months? I thought these sorts of things would be on the way out...
i know, i have no idea why after we have been feeling great for so long that now it is starting all over again. i went to my doctor yesterday about my bloating symptoms, and he had no idea. ughh, guess we have to do it on our own. but yes, i have found berries and bananas to be ok. also i think citrus fruits are ok too. and spinach, i eat a lot of that haha.
good luck with everything, here's to hoping it will go away in another 6 months!

I have used a food diary in the past to help figure out symptoms and reactions.
Best thing I ever did for figuring out my symptoms.
I miss bread! But I love Kinnikinnick gluten free pizza crust.

I have to chime in - 6 months gluten free, and I'm also so bloated all of a sudden!! I figured out it's fructose, but I can't seem to handle any carbs either. Paleo works great, but it's difficult to maintain while traveling and on backpacking trips. How long did this annoying bloaty phase last for you more healed folks? Nice to know I'm not alone, but I'm sorry you guys are having these problems too.
What I have done is just cut a lot of sugar out of my diet, especially refined sugar. That has seemed to help my bloating so much! Also, stress was a huge factor. Unfortunately, the digestive tract is connected to the nervous system and when we get stressed our intestines and stomach take a hit. I dont think there is one finite answer to our problems, we just have to experiment and see what works...
