Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    I am seeing KDM for the first time next week. I am having the fructose and lactose breath tests. The guidance says:

    'Avoid food with a lot of fibres (brown bread, bran, pasta, chocolate, spicy sauces, muesli, fruit and vegetables)'

    This list seems a bit random - can't quite understand why spicy sauces are high in fibre.

    Does this mean just stick to white bread/pasta, potatoes? Would porridge be OK? Should all fruit and veg be avoided?

    I don't know the tests but it sounds like he wants you to eat low residue foods like you would before a colonscopy. So that is chicken, potatoes, eggs.. You can google it to find out.

    Hi @yabeeb

    I had fructose and lactose breath testing done recently in Australia. I don't have the instruction sheet anymore, but if you have a look at www.gastrolab.com.au you should be able to find a sample meal plan for the day before the testing with suitable food options recommended.

    Think I had rice puffs and rice milk, chicken and rice and some veg that day.

    Best wishes for your appointment with KDM.

    Hi, I thought I had posted yesterday? but my post is not here. Just to say when I went to Himmunitas I didn't arrive at the hotel until 7pm and you cant eat after 8pm so I just ate whatever they had on hand that I could eat due to other diet restrictions. The fasting and having testing done after travelling I found quite gruelling so I am afraid I didn't take the dietry advice too seriously. The second night I was so ill with PEM etc that I just had a bowl of soup and some bread in my room - again all I could face getting down me before the second fast. The first day I actually ate mashed potato with salmon and a few vegetables - the second night mushroom soup and white bread - so probably not too bad anyway!

    Good luck with your visit.
