Michele G's Activity
Michele G added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsDiabetes And Celiac Questions....I am looking for input from people who are diabetic and then went gluten free. My husband has had problems managing his blood sugar levels, despite massive amounts of insulin and strict diet adherence. He finally went to a Dr who did the blood test for all types of food sensitivities, and found that he is Gluten intolerant (going to a gastro Doc Monday to see if it's worth getting the biopsy).
Anyway, he has been off of gluten for about 2 months now, but still having blood sugar issues. Currently he is basically of of carbs all together (all grains, potatoes, etc.). Just meat, veggies and fruit (not much fruit, but he eats a small apple for his morning snack when his blood sugar starts to drop, it does not spike his sugar, but balances it nicely...)
He has been told by the dr that the intolerance causes a leaky gut situation, which *may* improve as he stays off of gluten, which should help his body metabolize his food better, hence balancing out his sugars... Has anyone experienced this? What I am reading here often makes it look like once you get off of the what, other food in-tolerances rear their ugly heads! I don't know how he would handle that! Not well I suspect.
Anyway, any advice, input, hints, would be GREATLY appreciated as I am feeling pretty lost, as I do all the shopping, make all the meals, etc.....
thanks in advance
