This site, our members and our experts are not qualified to provide a great deal of information on your situation.

We are not sure of what type of testing occurred, results, etc. And this is not our area of expertise.

I do know that food allergies are present. And I also know that the "diagnosis and treatment" of food allergies is also one of the biggest scam industries of today.

I would encourage you to work with a board certified allergist who has a specialty in food allergies---for the most effective and beneficial treatment.

Yes, sugars can be very attractive to water, metabolically. Read into that: *all* sugars, not just HFCS. It's the worst, and the most popular in current thought. But most sugars can have similar effects.

And you're right - it's in EVERYthing. Not only that, but manufacturers have found insidious little methods of naming a variety of sugars so they can list them separately in their ingredient lists without our being aware that the majority of what's in our processed foods is *sugar*.

The FDA (or whoever regulates such things) really ought to make them 'fess up.

So went to the doc thinking I may need vitamins since I have already lost weight, also to be checked for diabetes since thirsty is a sign, To my surprise, tests turned out normal But after the doc reviewed the food journal I have been keeping suspected High Fructose Corn syrup as the culprit. I Don't drink soda! She told me it is found in just about everything from jams to fruit juice to some yogurts, bread and cereals! I was tested for allergies and found to be sensitive to HFCS! So now reading labels more carefully to avoid it. There is so little choices to choose from!
