Just feed her plain unprocessed foods.  Cookies , pizza and chicken nuggets aren't that good for her.  Try meats, fruits, veggies, etc.  A dietitian might be helpful as you are also dealing with diabetes.

Here Are two lists of gluten free foods:

https://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/glutenfreediet/food-options/

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/

Eating gluten free need not be expensive if you avoid gluten free processed foods.  Read our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of our “Coping” section of the forum for some valuable tips.  Go to the library to get books about celiac disease and Type 1 diabetes or read celiac websites from celiac non-profits or celiac centers like the University of Chicago.  Consider testing other family members as celiac disease runs in families.  

Do not worry, before you know it, your family will be used to dealing with TD1 and celiac disease.  Your granddaughter will feel much better soon.

Whole foods are simple...I know with blood sugar issues that the cheap stuff like rice, poatoes, fruits all have to be eating in moderation. Try going with low glycemic stews and homemade soups in crock pots, you can use disposable liners to prevent contamination if you can not afford a new crockpot. Try going with stuff like omelettes, scrambles, baked chicken (again you can cook it in a foil lined dish so you do not need to get new cook ware), gluten free labeled turkey bacon and bacon, steamed veggies (get what ever you can get on sale) I go with canned spinach in omelettes often as it is cheap, If you can not afford all new pans etc. that you need to keep her from getting sick with gluten contaminated cook ware I suggest Nordicware microwave cookware, cheap and you can get hte steamers, grill plates, omelette makers that way.
Helpful links for learning the ropes and finding some brands of safe foods. PS as a diabetic she is going to want to stay away from gluten free processed foods for the most art as most are loaded with starches, sugars, carbs, whole foods lower carb options......they do make low carb, gluten free breads, baked goods etc....I run a bakery and do these myself but they are insane in prices, so whole food again.

    I've spent a lot of time looking up to see if I can find a post about a similar situation but haven't had luck finding it. I've never been 100% gluten free. As of this past Spring, I consumed gluten regularly (maybe a few times per week?...
    Genetic testing will just lump your son  into the possibility of developing celiac disease, along with almost a 1/3 of the population!  That is a lot of people!  Even if he has the genes, what will you do?   I understand your position.  My...
    Looking at the technical/FDA information for BioPlex, it looks a little different from some other tests.  One test looks for IgA for both TTG and DGP, along with IgA deficiency, and the other looks for IgG for both TTG and DGP.  So it looks li...
