Hi everyone. My son Daniel was diagnosed with diabetes T1 in May, and in July with celiac. We've been on a major learning curve this year. Recently I've been looking online and blogging, joining discussion groups about diabetes & celiac. It is nice to have a place to meet people who have to deal with both! I love the celiac sites because they have great recipes, but they don't need to worry about how many carbs they are eating, so it is a bit frustrating. But I look at the recipes, take out my calculator, and start figuring it all out with the help of the Calorie King book.
Daniel is still on a 3 shot/day routine, taking N and R. He will switch to basal bolus in October, which will make life easier. So far my challenge has been trying to prepare decent school lunches. He's not thrilled with the gluten free breads. I've made some, and they have been okay, but not terrific. They get dry & crumbly very quickly.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to know! Thanks!
