Hi, my husband just confirmed last week that he has Celiac Disease...he also have Type 2 Diabetes, but Dr just started him on insulin a few months ago. He also thinks he is pretty much symptom free. Sadly, his mother has many symptoms and is going to get tested soon. We also have 3 young children who we will eventually get the bloodwork done on.

We know not a lot about this disease, and wanted to see where is the best place to buy breads? Do you make your own? Is lunch meat okay? He brings sandwiches to work everyday and is confused right now. He's also a big time snacker :)

Any tips/advice for newbies? I can see theres a lot of great information on this board - so we are going to start reading away.

thx!

Welcome to the Forum!

I would like to offer this thread to you as some basic starting information. I included shopping guides, some menu suggestions and safe foods for snacking.

Click on it and read through and see if any of that helps.

Many people like Glutino Genius Bread, Kinnikinnick, Canyon Bakehouse, UDI's and Rudi's brand breads. Many bake their own.

and you can search the Baking and Cooking sections.

These people offer many wonderful suggestions for meal planning and shopping.

Best wishes to you and your husband.

You need to learn more about controlling his diabetes. I don't think a sandwich is supposed to be the best lunch for someone with diabetes becasue of the carbs. Gluten-free breads are VERY starchy so they are generally worse for blood sugar than wheat.

Have you considered sending him ow-carb gluten-free dinner leftovers and some cut veggies with dip or nuts?

Thank you! I love Elana's panty and have already printed many recipes.

Here are a few more threads to get you started. Meat and veggies is a good way to go when starting out. Avoiding potatoes would be a good idea though since he probably wants to go low carb for a while.

This diabetes forum has good info and a chat feature which is nice. They have some long time diabetics on the chat that are real nice and give great advice.

    • Jameson Irish whiskey, knob Creek single barrel, southern comfort original, bird dog apple flavored whiskey, captain morgan private stock, crown royal, and Maker's Mark whiskey?
    • Thanks for the information really appreciated 
    • There are some enzymes you can take to lessen the gut symptoms, they help break it down quicker to get over it faster. Your antibodies will still flare up for the next few weeks and weak havoc with your immune system so it is mostly damage control. Go easy on your gut everyone is different in terms of easy to digest foods. I myself use coconut and konjac porridge the next couple days of with egg whites and nothing solid. Others swear by broths, soups, sweet potatoes, rice porridge, and slow cooked meats.
      Imodium helps if you have D, if you get C like me up your magnesium, I use magnesium calm but rotate in more doctors best which is easier on the gut when glutened. Peptobismal many swear by. GasX can help also. Anise (not star anise) can help with bloat and gas also. Teas are wonderful, drink plenty of liquids regardless.



       
    • Hi all: I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2010 with blood testing and small bowel biopsy.  I have been following a gluten-free diet since and a lot of my symptoms and skin problems have gotten better.  However, I was at the beach and got bitten by flies and after biopsy of my legs and a whole Hurd of blood tests the diagnosed me with pyroderma gangrenosum (PD).  It is very painful and takes a long time to heal.  There is some research out there that does relate pyroderma gangrenosum to any inflammatory bowel disease.  I could only attach one photo but I hope this helps others to know PD is a big problem.  
    • Yeah my family stopped doing gifts a few years ago when we had a grandparent on each side of the family die. After that no one meets up, no gifts, no one even does cards. I tried 2 years ago to give all my relatives gifts, hand written cards......None of them even said thanks. Next year I said I will not give out cards or gifts unless one of them send me something....and well I did not even get a card. Funny thing is my birthday falls on the 16th of Dec so nothing from any relatives for 2 years in the month of December hit me pretty hard. I know my disease caused me to burn bridges and be a bit more secluded but it was ridiculous to the point that the past 2 years I have been sending myself on vacation the same way, hotel, and location that my family used to spend on vacations when we were a family.

      Sorry for the self pity thing, I was just pointing out that my extended family other then my parents (they still help me out and care) do not care about the holidays anymore. And I consider several members here, as messed up as it might be a "I care about your health and life" more so  then my actual aunts, uncles, and cousins. So I figured I might not be rich but if we had a secret santa type thing I could at least afford to send one person a gift.

      Funny how this community is more family to me then the one I grew up in. I guess it has to do with relating to people here more, feeling of caring, and overall support.

      I swear one of these days we do need to have some kind of meet up lol, would be crazy....oddly enough I can see certain members from our group being at each others throats, while others would be like arms around the shoulders singing carols....the mental image is quite amusing.

      But yeah I do wish I could send everyone here a gift or card, but you know how the financial issues are. If I ever when the lottery I am gifting everyone lol.
