“Hi, I’m Amy! I am a mom, sweet tooth and registered dietitian specializing in Sugar Intolerance (aka Sucrose Intolerance, Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency or CSID) a rare disease that impairs a person’s ability to digest sucrose. As Americans, 45-65% of our daily intake comes from carbohydrates (sugar, starch and fiber) in the form of fruits, vegetables, healthy grains… and the occasional donut. For a patient with CSID, this diet hits a sour note causing negative GI symptoms and limited food choices. My goal is to create a greater awareness of this rare disease, as well as to empower dietitians across the country to help them identify and better serve CSID patients. Through discovery, knowledge and understanding, patients suffering from Sucrose Intolerance can get the support they need and live more fulfilling lives. How sweet is that?”
