<_<

I have this disorder and all three sons have it as well. Mine is more severe than the other since I am the older one.

Blood sugar levels drop quickly after a meal 2 - 3 hours after a meal. I eat 6 small meals each day during the day and night time frame or around the clock if you prefer. For each hour, I do not eat my blood sugar levels continue to drop on down the scale. Once, I eat again, everything goes back up to around 120 -130 mg/dl range. If I eat anything containing sugary products or apples, it can shoot up to 160 md/dl easily. (Spiked) I am allergic to all spices, and food processing chemicals. I am allergic to peanuts and/or tree nuts of all kinds. I do not eat anything with sugar in it unless it is natural sugar only. My skin contantly itches when blood sugars levels are high or very low. I develope a cough when my blood sugar levels gets below 70 mg/dl. At other times when it is below 82 mg/dl. I have poor circulation in my feet and hands. Feet turn red and swell up at night sometimes but, not all the time. Finger tips have lost their touch feeling most of the time. A blood sugar levels are never stable. I can feel symptoms of hypoglycemia at blood levels below 70 mg/dl or at 85 mg/dl sometimes. I eat only natural foods not man made foods. I do not eat them by choice, they are necessary to live. Organic brown Rice straight from field (Cooked) Green Peas, Organic Lentils, Organic Chicken Breat only Ground up (Cooked). Strawberries, black berries, Blue Berries, small seedless Tangerines every other meal. I drink only filter water not from tap.

My whole family suffers from pretty much the same symptoms. My youngest son sometimes has it worse than me. Is it possible for the whole family to have the same thing? Yes, I am extremely under-weight 5 feet 11 inches tall. weight: 120 - 125 pounds, weight varies daily. Oh yes, I forgot, dry mouth, thirty, and light headed things happen to me daily to sometimes. Cramps in hands and feet muscles as well. When sugar levels are low dull pain in muscles all over body. Why?

If you are asking if the whole family could be celiac the answer is yes.

Your blood sugar issues may resolve after you have been on the diet for a while. Have you had A1C testing done? I am not an expert but 160 doesn't sound like a real high reading after a meal. Ask your doctor about it. Getting some good protein and fats at each meal may help stabilize things a bit.

Can Celiac Disease cause nerve damage to the fingers, finger tips, and cause red swollen feet? The right sides of my fingers on each hand is numb to touch and has been for the last 5 years. Also, the bottem of my toes have been numb too. Why would my eyesight improve late at night where I do not need my glasses to see the television clearly but, in the morning hours be blind as a bat. These are things caused by things other than Celiac Disease. When, I was following the VA Doctors course of eating just anything, my glucose levels keep on falling until, I darn near passed out on my kitchen floor several times. Then, 5 years ago, I discovered the real thruth about myself, Celiac Disease and allergies to chemicals in foods. I also discovered I was allergic to all kinds of spices, including black pepper. Iohine Salt only can I tolerate. I have bad symptoms when blood sugar levels get as high as 160 mg/dl. Remember, I am extremely under weight. I also have bad symptoms when under 85 mg/dl which my Diabetic Test meter is set for at present time. 85 mg/dl - 130 mg/dl as confortable range. I took a whole year to experiment on all types of foods so, I pretty much got that down pat. What I mentioned in my last post is all that my body will tolerate.
