Are you sure you're having an intolerance for fructose? If I am correct fructose is one of the products the body produces when digesting food.

Fructose is the sugar in fruit. All, or nearly all of fruits contain it. I think it is in honey also. Be leary of fruit juices for sure! People breed fruit to be as high as possible in fructose. So far as I know I am not intolerant of it, but I am extremely careful with fruit. I think of having bites rather than whole fruits.

Hi Skittles,

I think I am fructose intolerant (based on an elimination diet) but I am waiting until my gut has healed before getting formal testing. For now, I just avoid things that give me problems, no matter what they are.

There are lots of good lists online, but they are all different (research keeps changing). A really good list is here: http://ibs.aurametrix.com/2011/04/fodmap-diet.html

You can also check out the Farting Pear to check a food: www.thefartingpear.com/

There are some tests you can take, but none are proved 100% reliable (yet). The best thing to do is to find a doctor in your area who knows something about it. The Yahoo! group for fructose malabsorbtion may be helpful in doing research and finding a doctor: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/fructose_malabsorption/

I joined the group when I was testing, and they are very nice.

The elimination and challenge test I used was from Free At Last, by the way: http://www.amazon.com/IBS-Free-Last-Revolutionary-Step-Step/dp/0982063504

Apparently fructose malabsorption can show up alongside celiac. But you could also have other issues (SIBO, leaky gut, whatever) that could cause problems that look a lot like it, so that's why it's nice to have a doctor or good dietician to help you out. Eliminiation diets are tricky -- sometimes they seem pretty definitive and sometimes they are confusing. Just FYI, all humans are fructose intolerant to some degree...it's just we differ in how much we can take. A tiny bit of pear gives me a stomach ache, but other people may need to eat 3 or 4 pears to get the same result. It's just people who aren't fructose intolerant almost never push their limits and my tolerance is a fraction of a pear, so I push it all the time. Some people are even more sensitive and can't hardly eat anything (!). But that's extremely rare.

Take care,

Amelia

    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
