Yes I find fructose & lactose really aggavate my IBS
Symptoms..is it a normal part of aging to develop intolerances such as gluten lactose ftuctose plus difficulty digesting fat because of a lack of digestive enzymes…Are all Seniors affected?

Maybe aging is part of it – our bodies slow down. The intolerances are caused by damage to the lining of the intestines; that is my understanding. Regarding digestive enzymes decreasing, that may be a part of aging. Have you asked your doctor for a prescription to Creon to help you digest the fats better? I take it and need it even though pancreas tests normal. Worth a try.
