Hello. I am new to the site. I recently was told by a Gastroenterologist to go that he wants me to go on a Lactose free diet and also thinks I have an issue with sucrose. Therefore, he wants me to go on both diets. It has only been a few days since I had a colonoscopy, and with my symptoms, and whatever, that's what he wants me to do. I assumed it was hard because of how the nurse sounded sympathetic on the phone.
I have been going nuts trying to find information about both diets. I can't find a diet for both a Lactose and Sucrose diet, and I did find separate ones, and of course they contradict each other. Most foods cancel each other out, and so far I've been mostly following the Lactose diet. I am going to see if my insurance covers a nutritionist, which it should, but so far my insurance has been costing me so much money for the recent problems I've been having lately.
I've been losing weight, which I wouldn't normally mind, but I'm losing a lot of muscle, and losing the weight in the wrong places.
Does anyone have these two issues and can perhaps guide me to a diet, as I have been researching the net for three days and haven't been able to find what I need. I'd be very much pleased. Thank you. I don't know what to eat.
