I found this book when feeling much despair in the treatment of my daughter who was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who has any IBD inflammatory bowel disease or IBS inflammatory bowel syndrome. We were offered surgery, (colon removal,) or heavy duty medications for our elementary age girl. She had been sick for several (7) months with bloody diarrhea. Some medications helped for a short period of time,(prednisone and mesalamine,) but it was only weeks before they didn't help. It finally occurred to me that we needed to look closer at fructose when she became quite ill after Halloween weekend. She had consumed soda pop, orange juice, and way too much candy. At first we stopped the fructose for about 5 days, we saw some improvement. But to fully implement this treatment we needed to stop milk as well, (she still got to eat cheeses and yogurts). We also reduced wheat products, only giving low fiber types like white bread in small doses and switching to gutten free whenever we could. Also we had already stopped the polyols, sugar alcohol artificial sweetners. Some artificial sweetners are okay and are quite helpful, such as aspartame. This was early in December 2009. I have since found out that this is called a FODMAP diet. Getting information on this diet appears somewhat limited, but it's out there and in this book. Nine days after full implementation of this method with our daughter and the blood in her stools stopped. Fifteen days after implementing this method and my daughter told me her bowel movements are back to the way they were 8 months ago prior to all of this starting, aka normal. She is not taking any medications. She is getting supplements of iron for her residual anemia and she takes a child size dose of basic, inexpensive probiotics. She also gets some vitamins. At first we weren't sure that this would be a lasting effect, maybe just a remission. But after looking long and hard for information on this I really truly believe that this is the answer I intended. We did not get information on this from our paid experts. We were told that diet has nothing to do with it. We were serving her medications with fruit juice several times a day!

Our daughter is well, eating well, playing well, and her energy is returning to previous levels. Nothing could make us happier. She's not suffering, just having to pay attention to what she eats along with help from her parents. We have made sure she has her special treats for her special occasions at school and with friends.

It is my understanding that fructose malabsorption is common and that is not abnormal for many to have sensitivities to consuming large loads or doses of sugar in whatever form it may come in. I will now always be a proponent of this concept. My grandmother died of ulcerative colitis in 1980. She was the best cook of all the chewy gooey sweets. I think of her often this time of year, the holidays...De Lamar Gibbons MD is my #1, all time hero. We owe him much graditute.
This book really worked for me. It's small, and to the point, but as simple as it is, I couldn't find the same information anywhere else!

It's written by a doctor who had to deal with UC himself. The theory is still on the fringes, and you won't hear about sugar intollerances and sugar, fructose problems anywhere. However, they are a key factor in getting well in a number of illnesses.

I would definitely recommend this book for a read and to try out if you are dealing with chronic illnesses from unexplained origins.. such as UC, CD etc.

God bless the author.

PS- I've noted some further info, not included in the book. To properly avoid ALL fructose foods, also add to the list (besides those in the book and all fruits); corn, corn syrup, beets, carrots, tomato, peas, eggplant, and sweet potato. I've also noticed it is helpful to just avoid any form of "glucose syrup".
This is the best, most complete overview of the mechanics of fructose intolerance and how it affects bowel health that I have found in years of reading, but there are disappointing gaps in the author's practical advice, and some downright bizarre statements about weight loss. If you have found that the conventional high-fiber diet for IBS is not helping (or even making your IBS worse), read this book. This may be the key to your problems. Unfortunately, after convincingly establishing that fructose intolerance is at the root of much bowel distress, the author gives only spotty practical advice about what to eat and what to avoid. For example, he repeatedly warns against eating "wheat fiber," but says nothing whatsoever about oat or rice fiber. Are they safer? Just as bad? He mentions "waffle syrup made of corn" several times as a source of fructose. Is he implying that pure maple syrup is safe? Maple syrup is very high in fructose I believe, but anyone reading this book might assume that as long as the syrup is not derived from corn it is harmless. And his weight loss advice is just strange. He rails against ketogenic diets as unhealthy and counterproductive to weight loss, then gives you his version to try! While the bulk of his argument is a revision of the unexamined conventional wisdom on "healthy" eating that he believes is all wrong for IBS sufferers, his weight loss advice is a hodge-podge of exactly the same kind of lazy conventional wisdom. I suspect this reflects the fact that serious bowel disorders (his area of expertise) are more likely to result in weight loss and emaciation than obesity, so his weight loss diet is kind of a careless afterthought.

In the end, I recommend this book for its detailed discussion of fructose intolerance and its role in bowel disease, but if you decide to take the low-fructose approach to healing, look for another list of "eat this, avoid that" foods. As for weight loss, any low carb approach will be low fructose. Find the one you can live with.
UPDATE: June 2010: Check out http://www.amazon.com/IBS-Free-Last-Revolutionary-Step-Step/dp/0982063504/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276731568&sr=1-1 for more practical information. It explains carbohydrate maldigestion and give a step-by-step action plan for finding out which foods are bothering you and why.
This was purchased to help a family member understand her condition and how to deal with it. All these self help/information books fit into ones library for understanding, yet all are not always in agreement. One must decide for themselves what works best for them.
Suffering from IBS...this book is sure to help. My doctor said I would have to take meds the rest of my life, and I, by the grace of God found this book in the library. It has change my life and I have passed it on to many others. And it has changed their lives as well. It works!!
