Tolerance Of Refined Sugars

What Causes Sugar Intolerance?

Sugar intolerance can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose sugar intolerance, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "sugar intolerance" as a symptom.  Here are three possibilities:
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Candida / Yeast
  • Bacterial Dysbiosis

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
very frequent stools
incoherent speech
very angry/hostile disposition
increased emotional instability
current birth control pill use
dizziness when standing up
cigarette smoke sensitivity
PPI antacid use
history of sinusitis
vaginal yeast infection
fatigue slightly reduced by eating
chronic nausea
... and more than 60 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of sugar intolerance:
Cause Probability Status
Candida / Yeast 91% Confirm
Bacterial Dysbiosis 16% Unlikely
Hypoglycemia 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Diet section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about tolerance of refined sugars:
What amount of refined sugar consumption, if any, produces a noticeable decline in your health?
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ Even the smallest amount causes problems
→ Only small amounts are tolerated
→ Moderate amounts are tolerated well
→ I can tolerate regular/large amounts
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate intolerance of sugars, poor tolerance of sugars, tolerance of sugars or high tolerance of sugars, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
