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
  • Bacterial Dysbiosis
  • Candida / Yeast

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:
temple-based headaches
difficulty swallowing
fatigue slightly reduced by eating
very frequent stools
sugar/sweet craving
high refined white flour consumption
current GI infection/parasite
frequent meal-related bloating
regular runny nose
very deformed toenails
meal-related bloating
... 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
Hypoglycemia 91% Confirm
Bacterial Dysbiosis 17% Unlikely
Candida / Yeast 4% 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:
