I've been having digestive problems for about 2 years, after picking up a parasite and virus in Mexico. Before then, I was vegan (occasionally some eggs), pretty high-carb, and alcoholic (so more stress on digestive system). I have symptoms... (more)

Samantha, wow my gastroenterologist is frustrating. He will only talk about traditional celiac, and any other reaction to wheat is something he won't accept as a real condition. No Cyrex testing for other peptides besides gliadin. No Cyrex... (more)

I'm definitely sensitive to fructose and need to limit it. Does anyone know how much acorn squash contains? I'm not sure if it is all glucose, fructose, a mix of the two, nor even how much sugar is in acorn squash to begin with.

Squash are awesome if you are low carb, they pack a lot of nutrition, flavor and sweetness even though they have a negligible amount of carbs. You could eat quite a lot of it before reaching 50g net carbs (which tends to be my personal limit). (more)

I notice that whenever i eat some fruit, honey, maple syrup or other high fructose foods i get anxious, moody and bloated. This never happens with glucose containing carbs like white rice, yuca, sweet potatoes and yams, just fructose carbs. Could... (more)

A lot of people do say that they respond differently to fructose and glucose. I recently wrote a blog post on the difference over at paleoisms.wordpress.com, but it's certainly possible that you have a deficiency in fructose metabolism.

I have run the gamut of diets to heal my digestion issues-- most of which help for a bit, and then my symptoms come back, and new ones appear as well. I have gone gluten free, then cut out soy and dairy, done the candida diet... Now am full low... (more)

I had similar problems, it turned out that fructose and other FODMAPS were issue, so low carb obviously didn't help (hello broccoli, garlic and onions!). Now I eat safe starches (glucose) and try to eat only fermented vegetables, feeling much... (more)

I have been strict Paleo for about 5 months. I have Psoriasis as well as fructose malabsorption and SIBO. Recently, I began to follow the elimination diet for FM and killing off SIBO. I have gone from having no food craving to having out of... (more)

Try taking 500-1000mg of glutamine capsule broken open under the tongue to help deal with the cravings. (Source: Mood Cure--Julia Ross) It helped me deal with sugar cravings.

I have never had any gut problems or food intolerances. However, I did adopt a pretty clean paleo diet about a year or so ago. This has really leveled out blood sugar issues with much improved sleep/energy. Problem is, with the onset of cherry... (more)

Sorry, I know this is an old thread but if I can stumble across on Google, others can as well. People with Fructose Malabsorption (FM) don't have a "signalling" problem, they have an absorption problem, leading to a bacterial problem. ... (more)

I've been reading Paleohacks every day for the last 6 weeks as I've been trying to clear up my skin. I haven't had perfect success with that yet, but it seems that it usually takes 2 to 3 months to resolve skin issues, so I'll continue to wait... (more)

I just came across this post, hope my comment will still be relevant. I've suffered from an extreme 'change' to my body since I was 40, guess that's the magic age that things go to hell. At any rate, I've spent the past 3 years suffering from... (more)
