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.

In regards to cereal and diabetes...some celiacs have trouble with all grains and their diets need to be even more limited. I also cannot do cereal in the morning or I'm slumped over all day with really high numbers but I can eat a small bowl in the evening with no effect. As a matter of fact...I have pretty much eliminated ceral atlogether...same with bread. I do occassionally make gf pizza but still shopping around for the best one.

I'm no expert and just learning about Celiac although I've been sick for yrs. But as I get better at the whole GF diabetes numbers are excellent. Doesn't even look like I have diabetes anymore if you look at my numbers! My Celiac symptoms were so bad that the peripheral neuropathy in my head and numbness in arms and legs were out of this world. I have slight symptoms late at night...weird I know..but other than that, things are much improved. Gluten Free is doable, don't lose hope. Just embrace it.

Laura, I eat most any of the G.M. g/f cereals every day. I
use a 1/2 cup portion with a good portion of fruit and a portion of the pecans I good every year. I eat around 0730 & add 1 boiled to the meal. I enter 80 carbs to my bg reading. After that I walk and am usually around 200bg at 10:00 or 10:30. I enter the reading but if I take most any bolus I will drop to 50 or 60 by lunch time.

Don't know for sure about the cereal. I do know when I was pregnant my obgyn specialist would NOT let me eat cereal at all (and I had been eating plain cheerios). I remember it was bc of what cereal does to your bs level, and that it was especially not good during pregnancy. I did not have celiac at that time, just T1. But even now if I eat gf cereal, it does crazy things to my bs. I have learned to just avoid cereal most of the time. Maybe kind of a blessing for me, since gf cereal is kinda pricey. Just saves me some $$.

Don't know where you are located, but Hy-vee carries cream of xx soups that are gf. They are condensed soups, so they can be used in casserole recipes. I have used the cream of celery and cof mushroom. Nobody even knew or noticed, and my casserole tasted the same. Now, at my store they are like $2.78(can't remember exact cents) per container. But they were well worth it.

Wonderful! Thanks!

There are some mixes out there, such as this: which I think can be used plus Progresso makes cream of mushroom soup which is gluten-free (and delicious).

Another question - does anyone have weird glucose readings after eating cereal? I eat it in the morning at 0630am and my blood sugar spikes at 8am. I tried splitting up the insulin so some of it will work later (like a 30% and then 70% at 8am BUT in the meantime, I take it off to take a shower. So that dumps that info. I used to eat only sugared cereal (my favorite is Lucky
Charms) but now am eating GF cereals - and the same thing happens. Now if I'm in a hurry at night for supper, I'll have a bowl of cereal and this does not happen. In fact, I can be running low and have to eat an hour later. What's happening?
