Fructose Intolerance

Recommended Posts

Has anyone out there discovered that they also have issues with fructose? I just read by doing some research on the internet that it is common with some people with Celiac to also have issues with fructose. I noticed years ago that fructose seem to be a problem for me before I ever realized that gluten was an issue. I also have a problem with casein. Sorbitol is like poison to me. So I'm thinking what am I supposed to eat!!!! If I didn't have to eat to survive I would just give up on eating. It is so stressful to me to try and eat ALL the right things. I have been pretty much gluten free for two months now and I'm not feeling any better. I'm just having a bad day today. I certainly don't want to feel sorry for myself, but if I would get to feeling good then I would eat whatever it is to continue to feel that way. I haven't felt normal (whatever that is) for over 20 years with my stomach.

Yes, I have. Have you cut out any other food groups ie dairy?

Another poster provided me with these links. They have info on fructose.

I found that eliminating apples and peaches, that I was eating a lot of, has helped a lot.

I'm now sticking to berries, cantaloupe, and bananas.

Still I think fruit in the amounts that I'm eating is troublesome to me. My plan, when I get organized, is to quit fruit for a few days, stick to just meat and green veggies, and re-try some other foods such as rice or legumes just to see if fruit has been the problem.

It's all a PITA, but I'm trying to look at my food experimentation as a challenge that I will eventually find a solution to. Hang in there!

Hi -

My 4 year old daughter was just diagnosed with fructose intolerance on top of celiac on top of her allergies to milk, eggs, soy, and several nuts. You can do this with a breath test and I suggest it. It is very stressful and I am so sorry that you are going through this too. It means (depending on how sensitive you are) to almost all fruits and a host of veggies, honey, and other sweeteners. I do know that if you have the fructose problem you may have to also give up sugar (some are OK with it some are not) and that we can substitute glucose/dextrose. But, if any readers out there are fructose intolerant, I would love to ask them some questions. Good luck.
