  1. Fasting Glucose & Celiac

    I was diagnosed with celiac disease about 6 months ago at the tender age of 53. Explains so much of my past medical history. I know the diet and have stuck to it religiously. I am not over weight, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet but am still feeling sickly and tired sometimes. After my most recent blood test I was upset and surprised to find that although my celiac disease is under control, I am prediabetic. Will this explain why I still feel unwell? I'm going to meet with a dietician to hopefully find what I can do to change and improve. Any advice will be gratefully received.
  2. I am a newly diagnosed celiac. Recently I heard that salad bars in family restaurants might not be safe to eat from as the salad was sprayed with something to keep it crisp. Has anyone else heard about this? Is it true? I'm almost afraid to eat out any more.
