I have Fructose Malabsorption
By 1artsychick on March 15, 2011
Today I got the results of my Breath Tests, I talked about those previous posts. They tested for digestion issues, Lactose Intolerance, and Fructose Intolerance (otherwise known as Fructose Malabsorption). I have the later.
This is going to take some getting used to. As you probably know I already have to avoid gluten, this will just add to the things I can't eat. I knew this may be a problem, but I never knew there would be so many things I wouldn't be able to eat. I'm shocked actually.
According to the diet my doctor gave me there are only 9 vegetables I can eat. And after doing some research on this disorder on the web, I found that one of those vegetables are not recommended. I will be calling a nutritionist tomorrow morning to get in as soon as possible to help me with this.
Not only can I not eat fruit, and many vegetables, I can't eat any sugar at all.
I don't know if this aggravated my Meniere's symptoms or not, but I'm sure it effected me in more ways than I know.
Life without chocolate...*sigh*.
