LisaAnne replied to the topic 'Fructose table in alphabetical order' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Thank you so much for this table! It confirms what I have been experiencing. Only the items with a double smile work for me. I am still in the elimination phase. I hope to one day eat squash (pumpkin) again at least. Now that I've been eliminating though, the smallest fructose brings immediate nausea, which I never had before. This affliction has been so painful and caused so much turmoil in my life. I wish I would have know the problem sooner. It is difficult to give up all the fruits and vegetables as they are so delicious and healthy too. If I were younger I would become a scientist and look for a cure. I crave sweets. I guess I will try dextrose soon. Has anyone had good luck eating dextrose--not to help with the fructose but just to have something sweet to eat? What sweets have you found you can eat?

I'll safely say on behalf of everyone else with HIT that it blows a hard wind and can really make one feel isolated and not even human--especially over a long period of time. I'm curious to see how old people were when it first started for them. I was 22, although my health was always in bad condition, it spiked up to a new level. I feel it's the body's way of expressing itself with what is going on to help hint at how to fix it.

How can this be fructose free when apples have one of the highest fructose count of all the fruits?

Yes, my brother and I are like you. We have the same symptoms (and I have the same issues with fresh oranges and grapefruit). After extensive self testing... we know it is not how it is prepared. We are pretty sure our dad had it as well. Our symptoms got really strong when we were each in our mid forties.

Hello. I specialize in food sensitivity/intolerance testing so I hope this will be of benefit to you.

Hair analysis has not been studied (at least I could find no studies on it) with regards to food reactivity. You are right in that blood is more accurate, however IgG testing is not. This is because all foods will raise IgG levels according to scientific studies, both in cases of reactivity, but also mere exposure. You can google for studies on this.

After thorough research, the testing I finally chose to provide my own clients (I'm a nutritionist) is MRT. This is a mediator release test (via blood) which shows the level of mediators (immune chemicals) that are released by immune cells when exposed to a food antigen. 170 antigens are tested. It's very accurate and I see amazing improvements in my clients.

I hope this helps

Understood and really appreciate it, I am very heavily leaning towards the hair testing, just waiting for that company to contact me to answer some questions for me,

It is so confusing with all of the info out there!! I’m really not sure a out one being more accurate than the other. All I know is that I knew something was wrong and my medical doctors were not able to see that from blood work or scratch testing. Like I said, I knew about some of my intolerances l, but not the others. Which to me validated the accuracy of the testing. Perhaps see which method is more affordable to you and start there. I was able to get a discount on the testing by using Groupon, but I’m not sure that if that special is still going on. I will try to attach my results as for me, they were very eye opening and have provided another tool to navigate through this mess lol!! Best of luck to you :)

Hello and thank you very much for sharing and info. Research nowadays is so very conflicting I don't know what to believe. Instead of going the allergy testing route I am contemplating taking a "food sensitivity" test which tests for lgG antibodies for 96 foods in western diets.

The hair testing in your links tests for 300 foods plus 300 non food items so that's even better BUT what I have to decide on is which is the better option as one report I had come across had showed that blood testing is more accurate than hair testing, any thoughts on this please?

I’ve gone to an allergist (MD) and was told the only allergies I had were hay fever. I did some research and did some intolerance testing through The intolerance testing group located in Texas. I was aware of some of my intolerances, which showed up on the testing, but I was also unaware of many more that showed up on the testing. It has really been helpful to identify these food and nonfood intolerances. Here is a link to their site as well as my results, hope this helps :)

Hello, I am thinking of taking both food sensitivity and food allergy tests to see which foods are affecting my Psoriasis. However a person on my Psoriasis discussion forum who is under an allergist's care said:

"The problem is that they can be completely wrong like telling you have IgA anti-bodies for milk or egg. Any food you have eaten will have left anti-bodies in your body. According to my allergist that doesn't mean that is the food that you are having a negative reaction to"

So can you tell me why it would be of benefit to me to take these tests if the above statement is accurate please? Thanks, regards, Mike.

Lily replied to the topic 'Difficulties figuring out food intolerance' in the forum. 4 months ago

Sounds a lot like my journey. However the ppis are going to make your condition worse. My food intolerances were triggered by not enough stomach acid which is what heart burn really is. Try the gaps intro diet for a week and work your way back up the fodmaps. Get off the ppi's!!!! Start taking digestive enzymes and HCL betaine with every meal. Get on a really good probiotic and start eating fermented veggies. You'll eventually need to probably start taking psyllium husk to feed the probiotics..(see Bristol stool chart). Stay gluten, corn, etc free and check out the Wahl's diet as well. Variety in the diet is something not to be lost.oral tolerance can be increased but some foods you will never go back to...(food as fuel, not fun). Of all that doesn't work you may be dealing with mold....see the shoemaker protocol/symptoms. And get off the ppis!!!

saraszat created a new topic ' Difficulties figuring out food intolerance' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi there!
I am looking for insight from anyone that may have insight on what is going on in my body. I have had 6 years of fuzzy head and GI issues (bloating, constipation, nausea, pain, discomfort). I cut out gluten 3 years ago. Then did a IgG mediated food allergy test with a holistic doctor and did a food elimination diet based on those results. So I now avoid dairy and corn on top of gluten. I also started following a low fodmap diet a few months ago due to still not feeling great and when I follow all of these things (gluten free, dairy free, corn free, low fodmap) I feel the best I ever have, although it is very hard to sustain. Also, i still have random spouts of horrible heart burn an d nausea occasionally and cannot pinpoint it. I also am on a PPI for this. I have had a hydrogen breath test in 2015 and it was negative. I also have had multiple EGD's and Colonoscopies that have been unrevealing besides a stomach ulcer which is now healed and some esophagus irritation most recently. I am now scared of eating so many foods because I have had so many days of not feeling right. I have considered getting more strict on the corn restriction or maybe considering nightshade free because I am not sure what to do/if Fodmap is really helping since it isnt all the time. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated!

Thanks in advanced,
Sara
