    Beware of Gluten Free foods. Many have high glycemic index and can cause blood sugar problems:

     

    Book Request: In addition to Gluten intolerance, I have casein intolerance, chronic hypoglycemia and problems with fatigue and in the past with candida. When I started to eat gluten free I did not realize that there would be problems with GI (glycemic index). Neither did I understand how glycemic index works.

     

    I started to have problems with blood sugar! I need processed food, easy fast recipes and support for a gluten & casein free diet with a low glycemic index.

     

    I am sure that I am not the only one who has had problems with blood sugar after starting a gluten free diet.

     

    Please help! Write me a book that will help me, please.

    I too, being a working lady, like the convenience for short cuts to a good meal. However, I am (with my husband) still a huge label reader. For now it takes some of my time at the stores , but my health is my life. I do e-mail any and all companies that state gluten free on their labels. As they too need to know the good, bad and ugly of what is out there.

    I wish you all good health with good food.

    I'm a big believer in fun, especially when it comes to eating. And just because your child is on a gluten-free diet doesn't mean he or she should be deprived of one of life's greatest pleasures. It will require a little extra work on your part, but its well worth it.
    Don't think your choices are limited to carob and fruit-juice tofu, and don't limit yourself to the health food stores (unless that's your preference - I should have mentioned that I'm big on fun, but I'm also big on junk food; I think its an important part of growing up).
    Learn to read labels carefully, and to call manufacturers. Even if a label appears to be gluten-free...

    Our story began when our first child, a perfect baby boy, began to get sick. It started benignly enough, with more than just a touch of diarrhea, which the doctors attributed to the antibiotics he was taking for ear infections. When time was up on our allotted four-minute visit, we were told to keep an eye on it and call them if it didnt go away in a couple of weeks.
    What we were supposed to keep an eye on, Im not sure. The piles of diapers that we had to haul out every afternoon? The lovely rhinoceros-skin texture that my hands were assuming, thanks to the extra washings? Or maybe the water bill that had skyrocketed because of the additional...

    Celiac.com 01/11/2005 - Even the most seasoned wheat-free/gluten-free eater (forgive the pun—"seasoned eater") may feel a little uncomfortable venturing out of the home. Its true that your risk of getting unsafe foods does increase when you leave home, but most people agree that the life experiences of eating at restaurants while traveling, or even just the social aspects or convenience of eating at a restaurant on any given day or night, are well worth i...

    Celiac.com 10/04/2010 - When Tyler was diagnosed with celiac disease at the age of 18 months, I wanted desperately to talk to a kid––one who could talk––about what it’s like to have celiac disease.  Do you feel jipped?  Does it make you sad?  Do you feel “different” from the other kids?!?  I was heartbroken––grief-stricken––I had a long way to go before I would evolve into the cheerleader I hope I’ve become in helping people live––and love––the gluten-free lifestyle.
    Oh, sure, friends and family told me “it would be okay,” the way frie...
