    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.
