Thanks. Met with the dietitian today. The book they doctor gave me was pretty much what the dietitian went through. The good news was that nothing will kill me...I just need to decided how comfortable I want to feel after eating :). Since the diagnosis I have lost 8 pounds by watching what, when and the portion size of what I eat. Now to add some exercise...

Hi, I'm sure your dietitcian will suggest what foods to eat and which ones to avoid, For now Check labels to make sure no fructose (sugar from fruits or vegetables) are listed. Call and ask your doctor if you can eat any type of fruit or veggie since fructose is naturally occuring in those. Fructose is naturally occuring in plants as opposed to the very condensed, processed high fructose corn syrup version used in many products.

I was told by my doctor about 6 years ago to avoid all lactose and just yesterday after two days of testing was told I am not lactose intolerant, but rather have a fructose intolerance (malabsorption). I'm frustrated, hungry, cranky, and probably a bit depressed (not to mention overwhelmed with work).

Any suggestions or encouragement? I'm meeting with a dietitian next week Thursday.
