fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

I agree with Dark Angel. Take a look at the FODMAP diet. I would not do the FODMAP diet on your own. It is very specific & it is recommended to have a knowledgable dietitian guiding you through the process. Let me know if you have any questions.

Corn and corn starch are OK in fructose malabsorption.

Foods to avoid in FM are those that contain more fructose than glucose.

Sucrose, for example, which contains equal parts of fructose and glucose, should not be a problem.

Here's a brief explanation of fructose malabsorption with a list of foods to avoid.

If, by any chance you have "fructose intolerance," which is a genetic disease and is much more severe, then you need to avoid any fructose from any source.
