Coeliac 3Year Old With Glucose In Urine...
0

3 posts in this topic

My son was diagnosed with coeliac disease about a year ago, I also have it and found out around the same time. I noticed he was drinking a lot, always asking for drinks, waking in the night thirsty and was uncontrollable if refused a drink. Took him to the doctors yesterday and have now found glucose in his urine so looking like he has diabetes too. Does anyone else or their children have this? Is it common? I have no idea what the implications are...I feel like when he was first diagnosed with coeliac all over again...a dark pit of unknowing :(

If anyone could offer me any advise or information I would be so pleased.

Diabetes is a common companion of celiac, unfortunately. The good news is that with a strict gluten free diet it can often be controlled very well, once you can get his sugar under control. The whole foods diet that works well for celiacs seems to work pretty well for diabetics too. Your doctors should be able to help you with this. But there are lots of good folks on the forum who will have lots of advice for you too.

I'm sorry to hear of his diagnosis. :( 'Shroom is right, diabetes is one of the most common rag along autoimmune disorders that celiacs get. Hashi's is another.

Best wishes.

    • Even if the animal ate gluten, the meat is still gluten free. if it's just meat, it's gluten free.  
    • Should be if unprocessed, if they processed into burger or sausage I would be concerned and turn it down. I was given some venison a year ago that was cut with pork in the processing facility and gluten contaminated due to the machines (some places use a flour as a binder, or wheat as a cleaning agent to run through the grinder). If you just have unprocessed chunks of meat, steaks, etc. It would be perfectly fine.
    • Wow  those sound amazing! Thanks for the info thats really interesting. I agree with easing into it, plus i dont think I'm ready to give up everything yet. I'm a little worried since I have trouble getting enough iron but I take a b-12 supplement since thats one of the ones I've been deficient in from celiac.  Also as a side note/question where in AUS do you live? I think I will be moving there within the next year. At first a was a little concerned what my food options would be there (restaurant wise) but it seems like you guys have even more gluten-free stuff than I do here in New York!  
    • No reason it shouldn't be gluten-free, unless he was eating donuts right before he was shot, lol. Just kidding. Unless it's a grain-gluten grain- fed animal I would think he should be fine to eat. Sounds very exciting to try!
    • Awesome, thanks! Also, I just remembered I forgot to add a possible symptom of my standard temp is 96.7F. Haven't had a fever since 1988 when I had rocky mt spotted fever!
