How do you tell if you have fructose malabsorption?

Symptoms of fructose malabsorption include abdominal gas/bloating, cramping, and diarrhea. These symptoms are not unique to fructose malabsorption and may be found with malabsorption of other carbohydrates such as lactose. The diagnostic test is called a hydrogen breath test, similar to the one used to diagnose lactose malabsorption.

Are hives associated with celiac disease?

Pressure hives (dermatographism) are a common occurrence and likely not related to celiac disease, but spontaneous hives may be. Discuss oral antihistamines with your medical professional as a possible treatment.
