Celiac and Diabetes

Well, since Celiac Disease (Gluten Allergy) is such a prevelant disease with diabetes, I figured we needed to have a group for it. Let this be a group for questions and suggestions.

Hi Group - Thanks for all the great ideas. I'm wondering if there is anything at all to replace cream soups, as in cream of mushroom, etc. I used to be able to use it so much in casseroles, etc. I'm at a loss.....

Miscarriage is more common in women who have celiac... but would not believe such would be the case in women who maintain a gluten free diet and have allowed a period of healing of the gastrointestinal tract.

They just made a g/f section in our CAFB,SC commissary. They already had a different section with all of Bob's Red Mill products + bread, rolls, Van's Waffles, g/f pasta and many other items. I am always surprised that the bases carry all these g/f item. The manager once told me that most of these items are organic? I know the Enviro-Kids g/f cereals are.
Kids cereals are.

Since Celiac causes malabsorption from the flattened villi that lingers for a long time after complete compliance, I would think that the attending obstetrician should be aware of the Celiac dx and monitor the pregnant woman to make sure that her chemistries are ok more often than usual. In other words, if you are a celiac with flattened villi, you won't absorb the prenatal vitamin like someone who doesn't have Celiac.

Does Celiac affect pregnancy? Anyone know?

This my first post to this group, First it was juvenile diabetes in 71 then DH in 92 then CD in 96 so I was on a whole wheat regimen all this time till we saw an article in Diabetes Forecast *Wheat is Your Problem* by Jean Guest. I went on a g/f diet immediately. I am not sensitive to anything now.

Welcome back, Aunt Jayne. Good to hear that you are normal again after the heart attack. Eating anywhere at all other than home is really difficult for me too, since I have Celiac and an intolerance to corn, soy and some tree nuts. Probiotics are a major help to me.

Does anyone else also have problems with casein?
