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.

The best information that I have ever read. I passed it on to other family members, too.
Thank you.

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.

Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parent...

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
