Gluten Free Diet And Hypoglycemia?
Posted 27 October 2009 - 04:23 AM
I have been gluten-free now for about a month and have experienced some blood sugar crashes in the morning.
The things that have helped just a bit, is later dinners, protein with my carbs, and a late night snack preferably
a protein snack.
I am just curious why this is? Do gluten-free grains have a glycemic load greater than wheat flours?
It's just strange...

I find that keeping my hypoglycemia controlled isn't hard on the gluten-free diet, it just means eating natural foods - fruits, vegetables, meats, legumes, nuts, seeds, and some gluten free grains. (I can't do dairy, but that's not everyone.) Gluten free bread I can do a bit of, and when I make my own things, like waffles, I try to pick higher protein flours and use less sweetener (and use agave instead of sugar, but that's me), but I can't eat a lot of 'em.
