Did any of you have these tests?

Hi Everyone,

Okay, I'm pretty sure I have IBS. But my doctor sent me for a fructose test ( which I tested positive to) and he sent me for a blood test for anti-transglutaminades, which is a wheat allergy. Im still waiting for those results, but i wanted to know if anyone had these tests and in the end they still had IBS. My mom had IBS and i'm soo sure I have it. MY symptoms are seasonal, but can get very bad during stress periods. I also seem to have an anxiety disorder which comes hand in hand with my stomach problems. ( I'm 19 btw)

What is a fructose test (blood tes?)? And when you say you tested positive to it does that mean you can't eat anything with fructose?

Frustose is a type of sugar. This test is administered by drinking water mixed with fructose and periodically breathing into a tube to test levels of a certain gas. I tested postive, meaning I have trouble properly digesting fructose. So far I am waiting to see my doctor and we will discuss what to do next.
