In Topic: Additional Complications Years After Coeliac Disease Diagnosis

Crikey Moodle, you really are having a time of it.

I'm O RH- too but am lucky in that repeated episodes of left eye uveitis ceased when I went gluten free. Isnt it brutal, savage and total agony ? I have seen it described in an ophthalmology journal as a "perfect pain".

As for AS, Im fortunate that I have no firsthand experience - and hope it turns out you dont either.

but have a look at

http://www.kickas.org/londondiet.shtml

Ive been avoiding rice, potatoes etc but using beans, lentils and the like ( i.e. a low GI diet ). Looks like this is also a low starch diet.

Content on Kickas.org does suggest that HLAB27 is uncommon and that a significant number of people with AS are HLAB27. BUT that does not mean that everyone with HLAB27 has AS !



lots of ((((((doggy breath hugs))))))

In Topic: Hypoglycemia And Gluten Free Anyone?

I find a low GI / GL diet helps greatly in avoiding hypos.

Things like Beans, Lentils, plain organic yoghurt and, of course, protein ( no I'm not a veggie :D )

With rice, potatoes and such I'll be a trembling wreck within a couple of hours without followup food

There are lots of sites around listing GI / GL for foods for example
