New Fructose Malabsorption Support Group

For those of you who stumble across this blog while searching for information about Fructose Malabsorption, I just wanted to let you know that a new Fructose Malabsorption Support Group has been set up.

This group has just started, so as with most things, it is starting small, but hopes to grow over time. While the previous Australian Support Group I mentioned provides a lot of information, it can also be very restricting to those who don't fall into their FM outline as this group specializes in those who cannot eat wheat products. While this is common in FM and many cannot eat wheat, there are also many who can eat some form of wheat, whether only very little bits, or a certain kind (sourdough). And so the new group is more open to all varieties and sensitivity levels of FM so as not to make people feel like they have to fall in a certain "mold" or that they are not properly helping themselves if they continue to eat wheat.

Hopefully over time this group will grow and be helpful for those who are looking for information and help with FM. If you are suffering from FM please help it grow by joining and introducing yourself and asking any questions you have.

It is always nice to see another family dealing with this intolerance. It is a difficult one and since most people are totally clueless about it, they tend to look at you like you are crazy when you say your kid can't eat fructose...I also have a blog http://diabolicalvegetation.blogspot.com
