An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
While a diagnosis is nice to have, it is possible to remain gluten free and LCHF. My hubby has been for over 16 years (long before my diagnosis). There is no way he would consider a challenge (we like to pay our bills!)
Just because you have the genes to develop something, does not mean it can happen to you. About 35% or so of the population carries the genes that can develop into celiac disease, but only a tiny fraction (about 1% or more) actually do.
Get a meter from Walmart (with a TD2 diagnosis, you should qualify for one) and start testing foods. What affects you might not affect me! We are each unique. With a history of gestational diabetes, you should monitor for LADA (type 1 adult onset). Too many doctors take a look at weight and assume Type 2.
Make sure those probiotics are gluten free!
Welcome to the forum.
In my case Ulcerative Colitis for me reacts to fructose, glucose, and sucrose....in addition to the common triggers I am already avoiding. Sugars/carbs/starches cause a type of flare up. IT becomes apparent with I get anemic and start shitting blood and mucus. Keto it went from globs of blood, extreme anemia, to the occasional streaks in the stools. I still sometimes get too much via seeds, coconut flour, and sugar alcohols but streaks and drips beats globs and anemia any day lol. OH if your looking for a premade bread, mixes, etc. Look up Julian Bakery especially if you want to avoid starches and sugar alcohols. If you do not mind sugar alcohols Knowfoods has some stuff....I preferred Julian before my bakery I run reverse engineered their bread and started selling it >.> I also came up with a lemon bread recipe, dinner rolls, etc by accident trying to make their bread lol. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/blogs/blog/1202-gluten-free-and-specialty-diet-recipes/
Enis_TX: Thank you for the reply. I'm doing Atkins/Keto/Paleo combos so I would love recipes or tips! I started with Atkins but they use a lot of sugar alcohols in their products and those don't agree with me. I still use the tracker but I've switched to more fats with the Keto macros rather than the higher protein. I'm staying under 25 net carbs a day and try to keep it under 20. I have good days and bad days with that. Some of the Keto and Paleo rules aren't for me but I find a lot of their recipes helpful and try to embrace the whole/non-processed foods philosophy. I wondered how much worse it would be to go back on gluten now that I'm off of it. The first couple weeks of going low carb were truly terrible-I certainly don't want to do anything that will send me back to carb addiction and cravings. It's funny, I've never really struggled with addiction- didn't smoke, didn't drink (couldn't really-alcohol makes me feel terrible) but I never really considered carbs and gluten as a deadly addiction-yet here I am. Out of curiosity, what kind of AI issue reacts to sugar?
