Diabetes And Celiac Connections... Any Info?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Trusted friends...!

I'm posting for a friend who has a child of 6 years recently diagnosed with diabetes type 1. She knows of the link between celiac and diabetes, but I'm finding it hard to find any info online for her... She desperately wants to look at every possibility to keep him healthy, and he has recently displayed some celiac type symptoms. The docs here in uk won't acknowledge the link easily. So am trying to help her. But I have no experience or links to show her. (Am more of an expert in celiac and allergy!!)

Anyone have any useful info or links, would really appreciate it... As always, many thanks

I had breakfast at the G F cafe yesterday near me, and a little girl (age 6) was sitting next to me. Her Dad told me she

was Dxed at 3 with type 1 diabetes (she wears an insulin pump) and now, celiac.

Well, that little angel was enjoying a sugar free cupcake

and when i said " I have celiac too!" , she said "oh boy!. so, you're on my team?"

I was never so honored in my life. I almost cried.

 

I said "yes, babe...and YOU are a celiac warrior princess.... just like me!".

I talked with her Dad some more and realized what a struggle it has been for them, but now, they are ok.

 

Yes,  the Type 1 diabetes and celiac connection is documented in every celiac book and article I have ever read!!!.

 

TYPE in This (below) ....and PUB Med articles galore will pop up

 

Children  celiac  type 1 diabetes. 

 

There is a ton of info on it.

Thanks Irish as always. I'm passing this all on to my friend tomo... It's strange, the longer I go in with this disease the more people I hear of having it... Or at least someone who knows someone who has celiac... I often wonder if they have the stats wrong and it's more than 1in 100!!

hi everyone

 

this is interesting because i was just gonna start a thread on diabetes. after all the negatives ive received, i just found out ive got to go see the nurse at docs because im pre diabetic.

i didnt realise there was a connection to celiac. not even sure what pre diabetic means . ( mum has been diagnosed with it though) guess thats another thing to google now. :mellow:

Oh no, sorry to here that. I don't know what pre diabetes really means though I'm sure it's as it sounds. Fingers crossed for you... Are you actually celiac or just your mum?

hi

 

from what i gathered pre diabetic means im definately on the way to being diagnosed with diabetes. my mum already has it. 

all my tests have been negative. so no celiac although i know i have a problem with it. my mum on the other hand has all the auto immune diseases associated with celiac and is being sent for a camera down the throat by the doc.shes having problems with her throat and hes checking if the problem is further down to her stomach. shes being very sneaky about it and not telling us much.i think its because ive been mentioning celiac to her and now shes a bit worried.

im feeling a bit mean at the moment because im hoping that they do a proper check on her and take biopsies and find celiac. it would just explain so much within the family. god i feel so bad now for saying that. anyway whatever happens i just hope shes ok :)
