Fructose Malabsorption And Celiac
0

5 posts in this topic

How many of you have dealt with or heard of fructose malabsorption along with Celiac Disease? After a year on the gluten free diet and many tests that revealed my son was healed and all levels were normal, etc., he was still experiencing regular nausea, excessive burping, and fuzzy or heavy head, and fatigue. After much of my own research, I came to see that fructose malabsorption may very well be the cause. We are experimenting with going off fructose and fructans to see if the symptoms go away and stay away. Just curious how many others have dealt with this????

I am curious to hear how this is going. We do not have a celiac diagnosis yet, but have had reason to suspect a salicylate sensitivity in our son-- salicylates are naturally occurring compounds in many fruits and vegetables (and is the active ingredient in aspirin) and some people can only handle so much before they become symptomatic.

My dd has fructose intolerance/malabsorption and my ds is just now going through the remaining testing for celiac disease.

if you have any questions about food associated with or to avoid let me know for the fructose issue.

I am curious to hear how this is going. We do not have a celiac diagnosis yet, but have had reason to suspect a salicylate sensitivity in our son-- salicylates are naturally occurring compounds in many fruits and vegetables (and is the active ingredient in aspirin) and some people can only handle so much before they become symptomatic.

I tested moderately intolerant to fructose but not all fruits. My doctor told me I can continue to eat the fruits that tested acceptable. I question that.

I would say I am also sensitive to saliciyates. I was getting such bad headaches after starting to use salycilic acid on a corn my my foot. I was taking a pain reliever that contained aspirin for the headaches. After over a week straight with a headache, it dawned on me that it could be caused by salycilates. I quit using the acid and pain reliever. The headache went away after a couple days.

I still have very sore muscles in my back that I feel is caused by salycilates, fructose or other food intolerances. I even question if I am getting cc with gluten. It is so hard to pinpoint. I am not able to give up all the foods high in saycilates and fructose because of so many other food intolerances. I'm still not gaining weight like I should be.

Over thirty years ago, my infant son was very, very fussy. When he was 11 months old, I put him on the Feingold Diet, which was low on salycilates and removed all artificial flavoring and coloring. We weren't feeding him foods with artificial ingredients, but most likely they were passing through my breast milk. After four days on the diet, he became a content baby. Whenever he got fussy, I was able to figure out what was causing the problem.

jackay - what fruits did they say you could still have? My daughter has to stay away from fruit and veggies with a higher fructose content than glucose. So, we avoid apples, pears, etc. She can have the berry fruits fine, but we also sprinkle dextrose on those for a little extra protection.

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
