Are you sure you're having an intolerance for fructose? If I am correct fructose is one of the products the body produces when digesting food.

Fructose is the sugar in fruit. All, or nearly all of fruits contain it. I think it is in honey also. Be leary of fruit juices for sure! People breed fruit to be as high as possible in fructose. So far as I know I am not intolerant of it, but I am extremely careful with fruit. I think of having bites rather than whole fruits.

Hi Skittles,

I think I am fructose intolerant (based on an elimination diet) but I am waiting until my gut has healed before getting formal testing. For now, I just avoid things that give me problems, no matter what they are.

There are lots of good lists online, but they are all different (research keeps changing). A really good list is here: http://ibs.aurametrix.com/2011/04/fodmap-diet.html

You can also check out the Farting Pear to check a food: www.thefartingpear.com/

There are some tests you can take, but none are proved 100% reliable (yet). The best thing to do is to find a doctor in your area who knows something about it. The Yahoo! group for fructose malabsorbtion may be helpful in doing research and finding a doctor: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/fructose_malabsorption/

I joined the group when I was testing, and they are very nice.

The elimination and challenge test I used was from Free At Last, by the way: http://www.amazon.com/IBS-Free-Last-Revolutionary-Step-Step/dp/0982063504

Apparently fructose malabsorption can show up alongside celiac. But you could also have other issues (SIBO, leaky gut, whatever) that could cause problems that look a lot like it, so that's why it's nice to have a doctor or good dietician to help you out. Eliminiation diets are tricky -- sometimes they seem pretty definitive and sometimes they are confusing. Just FYI, all humans are fructose intolerant to some degree...it's just we differ in how much we can take. A tiny bit of pear gives me a stomach ache, but other people may need to eat 3 or 4 pears to get the same result. It's just people who aren't fructose intolerant almost never push their limits and my tolerance is a fraction of a pear, so I push it all the time. Some people are even more sensitive and can't hardly eat anything (!). But that's extremely rare.

Take care,

Amelia
