Gluten Free High Protein

Gluten-free high protein does not have to be an oxymoron any longer. This is good news since celiac and diabetes, both auto-immune disorders, are thought to ride on the same HLA gene.

According to recent
Ads by Google:

studies, 40% of diabetics have celiac disease.

Conversely it is believed that diabetes is higher in celiacs than in the general population.

diabeteshealth.com states that possibly 5-10% of all celiacs have diabetes, though I believe that if insulin resistance and Syndrome X were included the number would be closer to 30-40%.

Given my personal experience and in hearing from readers on my blog I know firsthand that many celiacs have challenges metabolizing sugar and large amounts of high glycemic carbohydrates in their diets.

This is why my baking involves higher protein gluten-free flours such as almond flour and the sweetener agave.

I do not eat or bake with white sugar and have felt much better since I made that change more than a decade ago, at the same time that I gave up gluten.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Your doctor is wrong, you should be getting an annual test to see if you are doing well. This is standard care for celiacs. Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By checking your celiac antibodies, you can determine if celiac disea...

If you had a celiac blood test done that showed high at diagnosis then I believe you are supposed to test at the 3 month then 1 year mark to verify that those numbers went to normal levels on a gluten free diet. If they are still high you might not be as gluten free as you thought or just going g...

You can always just sub regular milk for the powdered and liquid. Powdered milk is nice if you are using a bread maker and setting up the night before or storing a dry mix to save time. It is nice to have powdered milk on hand for earthquakes. I had to drink it as a kid. It was cheap and...
