“Sucraid® helps by doing what our bodies cannot do very well–digest sucrose–and that could mean fewer symptoms and more options. Sucraid® provides us with more food options and with the possibility of larger quantities within those food choices. Starting Sucraid® brought the ability to tolerate such things as fruits other than berries and lemon, the ability to avoid carefully scrutinizing food content and constant sucrose-gram counting, and eventually the freedom to occasionally eat more popular, sucrose-containing foods like pizza. Sucraid® also brought dependence with it which is sometimes hard to accept as you carry your medicine cooler everywhere, but with the acceptance of that dependence comes more freedom.” –Aileen, Michigan
“When my son was first diagnosed with CSID and I realized how much his diet needed to be restricted, I thought it might be near impossible and I feared his diet would be so restricted that it would be unhealthy. And I was already experienced at doing restricted diets with other family members. Sucraid® made my son’s diet (and my life!) more manageable. After a year or so with Sucraid® therapy, my son felt like he could eat more like a normal kid!” –Kristi, New York

“My son is now able to drink infant formula and eat sucrose-containing foods that would normally cause severe, frequent episodes of diarrhea, and weight loss. As a mother, it is devastating to watch your baby deteriorate before your eyes and not know what is causing him to react to certain foods in this horrifying way. To get the proper diagnosis and then to be able to manage his diet with the right foods and Sucraid® has been just what we needed.” –Briana, Florida
“We give our toddler son a dose of Sucraid® (28 drops) with each bottle/meal. We have seen a dramatic change in the past 2 months from 14-15 BMs a day to 1-3 at most. He has been able to gain weight, which the doctor says has helped him to grow.” –Briana, Florida
