Why FODMAP was created by MrSmith
I'm suffering from lactose intolerance and now also from fructose malabsorption. Would it help to eat a FODMAP diet?

So my questions are:
1) As I understand it, I would have to avoid gluten as well? Right?

2) At the moment I'm eating lactose free and I try to eat healthy (no sugar, lot of greens, ...). But I assume I have to cut out the fruit and vegetables...

3) Do I have to avoid all FODMAPs or just some?

1) No. If you don't react to it, it's not necessary

2) Yes, if you're a fructose malabsorber you have to do a 2-4 week elimination diet and than re-introduce fruit and veggies.

3) Some, why should you avoid more if you don't react ro it? A low FODMAP diet ist only for people suffering from IBS, not for people wirh FM and LI.

Hi! My son was diagnosed with the same. I started a blog about our journey. It's fairly new (so I don't have tons of info yet - I'm getting there) and I would love to share ideas with you. I have some recipes and I started a list of acceptable foods.

But, as mention earlier, it is important to start with the elimination diet and slowly add new foods so your body has a chance to heal. Please reach out - I'm very happy to help!
