Good News: I Can Eat Fruit Again

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Some months ago I found that any time I ate fruit I would have to run immediately to the bathroom. I thought I'd done some damage to my liver by drinking fruit juice more or less with every meal. However, since I finally figured out and addressed my iodine deficiency, I have undergone a miracle cure. This morning, I made ambrosia (proving, finally, that I'm really a Southerner) and ate it with breakfast. And I'm fine. No issues whatever. Soooo if you suddenly develop fructose malabsorption, you might want to look into iodine, or some other electrolyte, deficiency. My favorite iodine link: http://www.qfac.com/articles/august/iodine.html (If you do the test, wear something black or sleeveless. My iodine stain did disappear, though not in two or six hours. But then, I'd been redressing the problem for a few days. Last Friday, it probably would have vanished in minutes.:))

What I did was tear up a navel orange, cut up a banana and throw on some flake coconut. As I remember it from my childhood, it was basically any citrus fruit, any other fruit, and coconut. This grapes and pineapple stuff is news to me, but I'm sure it would be good: http://southernfood.about.com/od/orangerec.../r/bl30621z.htm I think Aunt Clara made hers with oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and coconut. Coconut is supposed to be good for the thyroid and I figure I can use all the help I can get. Going to have guacamole with lunch (as avocados are good for the thyroid, too) even though I'm not the world's biggest guacamole fan. But every day in every way I'm feeling better and better.

Good article. I like that she advises getting iodine from foods and sea salt. One heads up though for those that want to do the iodine patch test. You don't want to do this if you have DH as it will reactivate the antibodies and cause a flare up. The oldfashioned way to test for DH was to apply iodine to skin and watch for a reaction.

I was using sea salt when I ran into trouble, but probably not enough. I'm glad you spurred me to reread the article again, because I had been looking for iodine supplements (duh-- hey! I've been starving:)) when I needed to be looking for kelp. And I'll change my sig line (again).
