We have a new GI doctor that I am super excited about. His name is Dr. Abdullah. He has given us hope that we can get to the root of Tootsie's recurring SIBO issue. She has been dealing with this for 6-1/2 years now. We have seen so many health care providers over the years it's ridiculous... Naturopaths, Pediatricians, Walk-in Clinic doctors, Gastroenterologists, an Endocrinologist, a Neurologist, Counselors, Acupuncturists, and Massage Therapists. I finally feel like we have found the doctor that is truly going to help us. He's the only integrated GI in the state, meaning he works directly with a naturopath to formulate a treatment plan.
We have exciting news regarding Buddy! He is no longer showing signs/symptoms of having Fructose Malabsorption. He is trying all sorts of new foods that have been on the AVOID list for 4-1/2 years. It's like watching a baby eat a new food for the first time. He doesn't know it, but just watching him eat an apple or homemade sloppy joes almost brings me to tears. Celiac disease and having to avoid gluten is a drag, but it will be so much easier without having to worry about fructose or FODMAPs!
