Well the fructose thing isn't going to be as severe as the woman on the phone told me. Seems like we are only going to have to take apples, pears, and the one that she loves the most watermelon out of her diet, her fruit consumption will be limited to 1/2 cup 2x's a day only. No canned fruit, dried fruit, or fruit juice, splenda and another type of artifical sweetner is a no no also.
The Doctor is a young man probably very early 30's maybe even late 20's and he was wearing braces!!! He was nice and asked questions and then told me what he was concerned about after we talked and what he wanted to do until the test results come back. The abdominal xray showed no abnormalities which was great, very little poop in her intestines. He wants her to have an ultrasound of her liver, then she had a blood test done that is going to check for Celiac's, food allergies, and complete metabolic workup to check her liver function as well. The woman in the lab said that I should have an answer about Celiac's in 48-72 hours. I know that the metabolic panel won't take long either. I don't know how long before the allergy one comes back.
I am scheduled to go to the 2 hour class about the fructose malabsorption on the 2nd of August. Follow up with GI on November 22 the day before her 10th birthday.
