Hello everyone,
I am just wondering if anyone else has diabeties along with Celiac and how are you coping with this. I am very fustrated and tring to figure all this out. Sometimes I just want to give up on all diets. I am also very over weight so I was also trying to do Weight Watchers before I found out I had celiac disease. Let me know if you are a diabetic. Maybe we could help each other. I live in Atlanta.

I have celiac disease and I am a diabetic. I am tired of trying figure out what to eat and what to feed everyone. Does anyone else out there have diabeties? If so, how do you deal with it and what do you do?

Karen,

Diabetes is very common in Celiacs. Many people find that the diabetes was a symptoms of celiac disease, and it sometimes goes away after a while on the diet. Have you tried a high protein/low carb type of diet. It is supposed to be very good for helping to regulate the blood sugar level, as well as help you lose weight. It also fits well into the gluten-free lifestyle. I hope you are able to hook up with someone in your area who is diabetic and Celiac and you can help each other.

God bless,
Mariann

I have Gestational diabetes... It's tough to eat right :(
I eat a lot of veggies, cheeses, meats, as well as my hourly alotment of carbs! :P

I've noticed that rice has mega carbs!! Especially the flour--and really the fine ground Asian style flour!!! (It's about triple that of wheat!!) :o I can only eat a small amount at a time... I just space them out all day!

I usually make what everyone wants to eat, but I have just a few of the carbs on my plate--and eat extra veggies.
A salad at every meal is my best friend!
**Remember, if you eat too much protein and not enough carbs to digest it--it's bad for your body!

I'm supposed to keep my BS at below 105 fasting/morning and below 130 2 hours after a meal.

How about you?

Connie

Dear Karen;
I had been diabetic for about 10 years when my daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease last summer. I felt pretty overwhelmed at first trying to correlate my dietary needs with hers. I do the food prep for our family out of a small kitchen, so it seemed easiest to have everyone be gluten free. We went to a dietitian who explained to me that many of the gluten free carbs have a higher glycemic index(in fact I had avoided many of them for that very reason) and that I could compensate by adding a unit or 2 of regular insulin to my sliding scale regular at mealtimes. My blood sugars are still up & down a lot; but my last HgbA1c was the lowest it's ever been after about 6 mo on a gluten-free diet so that's encouraging. At least we have some experience in tailoring our intake! Hang in there, I think you're on the right track w/ the low carb direction. ksc

I could KISS you for this response - but I'll spare you. I am 2 days into a diabetes 2 diagnosis. I've been properly diagnosed celiac since March 1, 2011. Diabetes June 21. I'm still adjusting to the idea. I am one of the ones in the 10% of celiacs who can do everything right and still gain. Vindication to know there is that, but it doesn't help m pancreas any. So I am swimming right now as to how to proceed. I am not insured properly and my medical help (nutritionist) is not able to see me again unless I go out of pocket. She is nice! but she did hook me up with a program through a local grocery chain for a largely reduced self-bloodtest devise! I am 58, NO diabetes in my family and yet I have developed it via celiac. I am hoping what you said above is true and it will fade, but intend to do what it takes to soothe it down into compliance in the meantime. It's just hard to comprehend when you've already done everything right and it STILL comes out wrong. (oops - wrote the wrong thing and brought the tears back out.) If you're still following the forum, I wold really like to be in touch. Thanks!

Sorry, but:

**Remember, if you eat too much protein and not enough carbs to digest it--it's bad for your body!

Just just bad information.

I agree.
Cut the carbs increase the protein.
(but always talk to your doc about any dietary / insulin changes first,,


I was surprised when doing some research to learn that diabetics is an autoimmune disease

edited** to add I did not realize what an old thread this was when I responded *** sorry :ph34r:
