My Husband Just Found Out He Has Celiac Disease...
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi, my husband just confirmed last week that he has Celiac Disease...he also have Type 2 Diabetes, but Dr just started him on insulin a few months ago. He also thinks he is pretty much symptom free. Sadly, his mother has many symptoms and is going to get tested soon. We also have 3 young children who we will eventually get the bloodwork done on.

We know not a lot about this disease, and wanted to see where is the best place to buy breads? Do you make your own? Is lunch meat okay? He brings sandwiches to work everyday and is confused right now. He's also a big time snacker :)

Any tips/advice for newbies? I can see theres a lot of great information on this board - so we are going to start reading away.

thx!

Welcome to the Forum!

I would like to offer this thread to you as some basic starting information. I included shopping guides, some menu suggestions and safe foods for snacking.

Click on it and read through and see if any of that helps.

Many people like Glutino Genius Bread, Kinnikinnick, Canyon Bakehouse, UDI's and Rudi's brand breads. Many bake their own.

and you can search the Baking and Cooking sections.

These people offer many wonderful suggestions for meal planning and shopping.

Best wishes to you and your husband.

You need to learn more about controlling his diabetes. I don't think a sandwich is supposed to be the best lunch for someone with diabetes becasue of the carbs. Gluten-free breads are VERY starchy so they are generally worse for blood sugar than wheat.

Have you considered sending him ow-carb gluten-free dinner leftovers and some cut veggies with dip or nuts?

If you need low carb, gluten-free bread try reading the Elana's Pantry blog. She has a few almond bread recipes.

Thank you! I love Elana's panty and have already printed many recipes.

Here are a few more threads to get you started. Meat and veggies is a good way to go when starting out. Avoiding potatoes would be a good idea though since he probably wants to go low carb for a while.

This diabetes forum has good info and a chat feature which is nice. They have some long time diabetics on the chat that are real nice and give great advice.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
