Our Fructose and Sucrose Malabsorption Story

My beautiful little boy who is only 2 years old has been diagnosed with Fructose and Sucrose Malabsorption. What a ride it's been. He also has Milk Protein intolerance and Soy Intolerance. The milk and soy intolerance were easy to overcome, compared with the Fructose and Sucrose which has been far more challenging.

He was diagnosed through a Hydrogen Breath Test which was done at the Womens and Childrens Hospital in Adelaide Australia.

Before the test I knew something was very wrong. He was always getting stomach aches, not sleeping and whenever he got stomach aches his appetite would decrease. I suspected it was something to do with sugar. A mothers instinct is very strong.

We are now waiting to have a endoscopy and bowel biopsy. I will add more to our story soon...gotta go.
