  1. Hello everyone. This is my first post to this board. I have been Gluten Free for about 2 years now. My diet is going very well, although it is a bit difficult to handle at times for me because I am also an insulin dependent diabetic for the last 25 years. All the rice/potato/corn is very high in glycemic content and can cause large spikes in blood sugar levels. I have become healthy enough in the last year to control my blood sugar levels pretty well through going to the gym, walking, golfing, etc, but life has become so routine! I'm only 29 years old and I live like a hermit. My co-workers don't understand my situation, and my social outlets have become non-existant. I am trying to date and it is so hard to explain to potential dates all of my health problems. Eating out is just not really a possibility it seems. I am allergic to so many things besides gluten (fish/seafood, nuts, seeds of all kinds, onions, spices, coconut, raspberries, etc.) I would be interested in hearing if others out there have multiple allergies (I bet there are a bunch) and how you go about eating out, travelling, whatever else. I'm too young to be living like a hermit! Later, -Mike
