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.

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?

Hi Annabella. Your reply hadn't showed up yet on this page when I commented; guess we have the ideas on the subject! I have in fact found that the longer I have Celiac, the less gluten it takes to upset my digestion.

Hi Jody. Well, if it's Celiac, you probably know you have to be off the glutens in wheat, barley, rye and, to be safe, oats. Cold turkey is the only way your gut will be able to heal, so that you will feel better. Not easy I know, but concentrate on eating the protein foods, fruits and vegetables. There are gluten free baked goods and cereals in most supermarkets now, certainly health food stores, so it won't feel quite so cold-turkey-like. If it's Celiac, you will feel enormously better, really, and it will all be worth the troubl.! Best wishes.
