“Sucraid® saved my daughter’s life and gives us a quality of life for her that we would have never had without it. Sucraid® means everything to us.” -Sara, Florida
“I was diagnosed at 17 years old, and before that I had no quality of life and whatever I ate made me sick. When I got Sucraid® and ate the foods I wanted to, I had almost no symptoms and felt normal. Before diagnosis, I would miss so much school from all the symptoms, and Sucraid® has been so beneficial in my diet and eating the foods I want and being able to get back to school.” -Cole, Washington
