I was perusing some older CF posts and came across one where Robb mentioned a connection between celiac disease and fructose intolerance. I had noted (with bewilderment) my increasing intolerance of most and ANYTHING with fructose added to it in the years since I found out I am gluten intolerant. Does anyone have more information on this (websites, articles, studies)? I have done web searches on "fructose intolerance" and didn't come up with anything linking it to celiac/gluten intolerance (of course, the answers you get depend on the questions you ask :D ).

Here is a place to start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fructose_malabsorption

I didn't know coconut milk had so much fructose in it... I also notice gastric troubles with fruit now, though I rarely eat it in the winter months.

Thanks Scotty! I keep forgetting about the wonders of Wikipedia.

Ditto what Scotty said. I certainly notice handling things like Yams better in general than fruit. It's tough being a caveman!
