My son was diagnosed with coeliac disease about a year ago, I also have it and found out around the same time. I noticed he was drinking a lot, always asking for drinks, waking in the night thirsty and was uncontrollable if refused a drink. Took him to the doctors yesterday and have now found glucose in his urine so looking like he has diabetes too. Does anyone else or their children have this? Is it common? I have no idea what the implications are...I feel like when he was first diagnosed with coeliac all over again...a dark pit of unknowing :(
If anyone could offer me any advise or information I would be so pleased.

Diabetes is a common companion of celiac, unfortunately. The good news is that with a strict gluten free diet it can often be controlled very well, once you can get his sugar under control. The whole foods diet that works well for celiacs seems to work pretty well for diabetics too. Your doctors should be able to help you with this. But there are lots of good folks on the forum who will have lots of advice for you too.

I'm sorry to hear of his diagnosis. :( 'Shroom is right, diabetes is one of the most common rag along autoimmune disorders that celiacs get. Hashi's is another.

Best wishes.
