Mon, Nov 18 8:12am · Fructose Malabsorption in Digestive Health

Wow ,I do the same life style thing. I don't eat all day then have 1 meal at night. I have cut out sucrose and all grain products. After a year of c. dif. my small intestine is damaged. I was finally diagnosed to have sucrase deficiency . All grains with or w/o gluten cause extreme upper abdominal bloating. So I guess I also have isomaltase deficiency . I can tolerate white rice and wild rice mix. I make a drink of glucose powder and water when I exercise. This increases my energy . I have also read about round up in our food supply. Any way I find my problem socially isolating.

Thanks for the info. I tested negative for SIBO. I have been diagnosed with the inability to digest sucrose and starches. There is a medicine for the sucrose portion of the diagnosis, but not for the starches. The only problem is the sucraid cost $8084/month. I don't think the average person can afford this. If i eat only "home made" meals that consist of protein and a green veggie (no peas). I have no bloating or diarrhea .The diet is worse than fodmap . Just check food labels in your kitchen… table sugar is in everything.

I thought I had IBS for 64years because all the G.I. Drs. said so . I saw one that tested me for sucrose intolerance (table sugar ) . Now I know I have sugar and starch intolerance. Worth doing a simple breath test for this. Good luck.

Have you had a sucrose breath test . After the c.diff. I can no longer digest sucrose. I have to take the enzyme. This caused massive bloating. Table sugar is a a hidden ingredient in many foods.

Hi there ,at least sibo can be cured with the right antibiotics and probiotics. The breath test (kit) was supplied by my doctor. I did the test (thought it was a waste of time) and mailed it to the lab the results came back showing 0 sucrose activity. I also did the sibo breath test which came back negative. There are several types of breath tests. Sibo breath test looks for hydrogen in the breath meaning positive for sibo. You had an actual culture that is a definitive diagnosis. Take the antibiotics and ask which probiotic to take and when. The breath test for sucrose intolerance is as accurate as the sibo test. The sucrose test measures hydrogen methane in the breath. Thank you for responding

I had c. diff for a year and after 2 negative cultures I still had horrible bloating after meals . I finally had a sucruse breath test and I tested sucrase defficient . The question is now what. It looks like I can only eat green veggies,salad and protien.Will I survive on this diet. I certainly can't afford Sucraid ,the needed enzyme to digest sucrose into glucose and fructose. The drug is $8084.00/month . Help…anyone with this ailment ?

I just found out I have sucrose intolerance. Every time I ate I had severe gas and distended abdominal. I want to know how anyone can afford Sucraid?
