Tue, Jul 28 7:23pm · Fructose Malabsorption in Digestive Health

I don't have diabetes but someone who is diabetic can eat tons of sugar compared with what I can eat.

Have you been tested for diabetes?

So sorry to hear that. Have you tried them peeled? Also I find russet and white or Yukon potatoes are much better tolerated than read potatoes. Also, new potatoes (especially the very small ones) and new vegetables in general have more sugar than aged ones. The bigger the potato, the better. G.I. issues are very complex, with multiple components, so none of us are exactly the same. Anyway, have you tried L-Alanine with them? It helps the lining of the intestine process sugars (but that doesn't mean you can get away with eating very much sugar.)

MORE RECIPES AND TIPS.
A. Chicken, Potatoes, and Potato Chips Casserole.
Peel and slice russet potatoes and put in bottom of baking dish. Salt and pepper them and add a sprinkle of thyme.
Place deboned and skinless chicken thighs on top of potatoes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and a good amount of thyme.
Sprinkle Kettle Band unsalted Kettle Chips on top of chicken.
Cover with foil and bake at 360 degrees for 60 minutes.

B. Tuna Patties
Two 5 ounce cans albacore tuna in water
2 large russet potatoes microwaved and mashed
2 eggs
1 T Pompeian Extra Light Tasting olive oil
Sage, thyme
Mix and form into 3 patties. Fry in Pompeian Robust Olive Oil on medium until browned on both sides.
Cover and cook on warm for 5-10 minutes.

C. Pork Chips with Broccoli Slaw
Brown pork chops on both sides.
Turn to low, cover, and cook until half done.
Turn chops over and add broccoli slaw to pan. Cover. The slaw cooks down quite a bit so decide how much accordingly.
Cook until done, stirring slaw occasionally.
Serve chops with slaw alongside.
Thick pork chops take 10 or more minutes per side.

D. Fritatta.
Scramble eggs in bowl.
Park cook frozen broccoli florets in microwave; add to eggs.
Cut up cooked Pederson's Farms turkey bacon and add to eggs
Add a few cooked mushrooms to eggs.
Add oil to frying pan. Fry egg mixture on low without turning; rather, lift up edges so uncooked eggs can run under. Cook until no more will run under the edge and then cover and cook on warm several minutes until top of eggs mixture is done.
Serve with grated cheese as tolerated.

A few tips.
1. Walnuts are much better tolerated than most others because they contain no fructans. Sprinkle a few on oatmeal to beef up your breakfast. They still have sugar, so don't overdo it.

2. Vinegar and oil made with Pompeian Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil and a little bit of Rice vinegar. I like a few sprinkles on cooked broccoli.

3. Pepper on Kettle Brand unsalted kettle chips. If you use only a small amount, you can't really taste the pepper but it adds flavor.

4. I can no longer use Trader Joes' canned chunk white chicken in water for some reason. The label hasn't changed, so don't know why.

Hope everyone is coming along well. We have quite the challenge to deal with.

All the drugs do not hijack your immune system. I am susceptible to infections, and while I got an ear infection for 3 months on Prolia, I got no infections on Reclast. FYI.

I tried both and they were both horrible. Prolia works by hijacking your immune system to build bone, which I learned too late. I had an ear infection for 3 months. The Reclast was even worse; check the Mayo clinic site for side effects. If you print the list out is 1=2 pages long or so. I couldn't even plug a cord into an outlet without getting out of breath. Had to buy aviator's oxygen to get my breath back after doing anything with my arms that had resistance. I have G.I. issues, which had finally been under control before the Reclast infusion; now I'm almost back to square one. I could go on and on. Don't get either one! Some people have a problem; some don't, but don't take a chance. Whatever side effects you get you're stuck with for 6 months to a year. Contrary to what some doctors say, Reclast does had G.I. side effects, and big time.

Mon, Feb 3 8:01pm · C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again? in Digestive Health

I have just posted VERY LOW FRUCTOSE, LOW FODMAPS, AND GLUTEN FREE RECIPES AND DIET in the Fructose Malabsorption discussion section. This might be a help to the C-Diff group. I had a very severe case of viral food poisoning that left me with fructose malabsorption, etc. Take a look – you might find it helpful.

If you want to read reactions to Reclast from lots of people, go to Drugs.com. It's not just me.
