Fructose malabsorption and celiac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a endoscopy again today and it showed I have decreased folds in my small intestine.... I was just diagnosed with fructose malabsorption can that cause intestinal damage?? Iv been on a gluten free diet for 6 yrs already but never had a diagnosis for celiac  they never did a endoscopy before just said I was intolerant. 

 

 

 

 

The doctor who did my endoscopy took a biopsy and says possible celiac disease

"But just as celiac disease often masquerades as another condition, failing the best diagnosticians, the reverse can be true and celiac disease can be misdiagnosed.  Or celiac disease can co-exist with other conditions.  Some conditions that mimic celiac disease symptoms include pancreatic insufficiency, IBS, SIBO a, lymphatic colitis, FRUCTOSE INTOLERANCE, etc. "

Gluten Freedom.  Alessio Fasano, MD, Founder and Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.  turner Publising .  2004. 

(Ha!  Not following the MIL citatation format.  Do not tell my kid! ?)

And this about the folding:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10840307

so, it could be celiac disease or the fructose intolerance or both!  No way to confirm celiac disease with the blood panel since you have been gluten-free for six years. I take that back.  It  maybe worth testing.  You might have been exposed to gluten.  Who knows?

I won't tell your kid haha.. 6 years ago they said I was intolerant to gluten. They didn't even do the testing. After awhile I was completely better on a gluten free diet up until 6 months ago... but then again they didn't test me at all for celiac until i was already gluten free for a year and a half. Then they did the blood work and said again just intolerant... my gi doctor had a suspicious of celiac so she went ahead and ordered the endoscopy knowing that my vili might be healing but it will give us a idea of them healing or not. It's a mess

yep ... im really starting to get very frustrated. i called my dietion today and told her what was going on and she said it makes no since that fructose isnt the cause so for right now i want you to keep avoiding it ok... i said ok... i said when i emailed you yesterday i said never mind i did have it then you replied back i thought so! well that was a sike. they called me thinking i was someone else.  so back to square one. she then said screw the tests and your to avoid it... the other day when i was preping for colonoscopy i had chicken broth and i added some beef flavor to it and ended up sick before i even drank the prep drink.... i looked at the ingredients and there was corn syrup solid in it.....
