Gluten Free Diabetic Diet

Share on facebook

Joseph Murray, M.D., a gastroenterologist and celiac disease expert at Mayo Clinic, discusses a journal article published in Gastroenterology about non-celiac gluten sensitivity. The results of the study show non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a misnomer that should be labeled as a wheat intolerance to fructan.

The Diabetes And Celiac Diet

There's no cure for celiac disease, but people can manage it by eliminating gluten from their diet. People with diabetes have additional challenges in going gluten-free, but a healthy diet for blood-sugar management can easily be made into a gluten-free diet with some careful shopping and substituting. Here are some tips for managing this disease duo: Follow a whole-food meal plan. A gluten-free dinner consisting of a serving of protein (broiled or baked), steamed vegetables, a small serving of brown rice, and a small piece of fruit for dessert can also work well for managing your diabetes. Buy gluten-free foods . Health food stores and most mainstream grocery stores now carry gluten-free products. If your diabetes management plan allows for pasta, rice pasta is an excellent substitute, since the taste is very similar to wheat pasta. Watch your blood sugar levels. A diagnosis of celiac disease necessitates what may be a pretty dramatic change in your daily sources of carbohydrate. This means you're going to experience variations in your usual blood-sugar patterns, so be extra vigilant in testing. Continue to track your calories and carbs. Some gluten-free foods such as rice may be Continue reading >>

    Hello all, I have recently started taking metformin for life extension purposes. I don't have diabetes nor any other significant medical history (I'm allergic to house dust mites and pollen, but other than that I'm healthy.) After a few days, I suddenly got a nasty cramp in my back; It's on the left side, and it hurts mostly when I move or take a deep breath. Massaging helps a bit. Now I'm curious, can metformin cause this, and why? Is it possible that it happened because I'm dosing too high, or because I didn't build up slowly enough?
    The pain is pretty nasty, but not debilitatingly severe. I can move, work, sleep, etc; It's just very painful and annoying. I have no other side effects except for mild nausea (nowhere near enough to vomit.) I have no abdominal pain or lower back pain, so I don't think my kidneys are in any trouble. Does anyone know more about this?

  2. Gerrans

    A glance round the net brings up anecdotes about metformin causing pains for some people, including back pains.
    I wonder if the trouble with taking metformin for a possible longevity effect is that it is not designed for that, which is a side bonus. It is designed to potently mess about with the liver and glucose mechanisms. Conceivably, that could hurt.

  3. Kevnzworld

    How much are you taking?
    I've taken 500 mg of the CR version twice a day for two years without any noticeable side effects. I occasionally but not often get unexplained back pains, but I always attributed it to sleeping awkwardly.
    The only caveat I would suggest is make sure you get a liver function test as part of your next blood draw, but that's just common sense, Mine have always been fine.

To be 100% sure your food is gluten free is to buy it fresh and make it yourself, because almost many food are gluten free in natural state.

When someone with celiac disease eats foodcontaining gluten, their body reacts by damaging the small intestine.Uncomfortable symptoms such as abdominal pain often occur. The damage tothe small intestinealso interferes with the body's ability to make use of the nutrients in food. About 1% of the total population has celiac disease. It is more common in people with type 1 diabetes. An estimated 10% of people with type 1 also have celiac. The only way to manage celiac disease is to completely avoid all foods that have gluten. Following a gluten-free diet will prevent permanent damage to your body and will help you feel better. There are also many people who are said to have a gluten intolerance. When these people eat foods that contain gluten, they also experience uncomfortable symptoms. However, they test negative for celiac disease and actual damage to their small intestine does not occur. More research about gluten intolerance is needed, but avoiding foods with gluten should help to relieve these symptoms. Taking gluten out of your diet can be a dif Continue reading >>

    Just Curious... How Much Novolog Do You Take ???

    I was hoping that some of you wouldn't mind telling me how much Novolog you take with each meal, as well as, how much Lantus, or, similar long lasting insulin you take each day ???
    It seems that I am needing to increase my dosages every few weeks, yet, my diet and exercise have not changed. This is confusing to me, being rather new on Novolog. As for the Lantus, A year and 5 months ago, I was only taking 10 units of Lantus a night. Now it's 55 units.
    Does this ever stabilize ??? Or, will I have to infinitely add to my units all the time ???
    Thanks for your answers. It will assist me in calming down my anxiety.

    Dont matter what I take. what matters is what you need. If you need more over time, you need more over time.
    Probably insulin resistance. I ain't an MD so you might want to check with one.

  3. Shanny

    D-86 is right, Paul . . . I didn't post at first because I don't use insulin yet, so I stay out of the insulin discussions, but there's no point in comparing what you take with what others take because one has no bearing on the other. What your body needs is what it needs. By cutting the carbs in your diet, you can prob'ly reduce the amount of insulin you require, but these are choices that are yours alone.
    Here is a link to Dr. Bernstein's law of small numbers - it may help you make the connection between the amount of insulin you need and the other components of your diabetic regimen.

Living Gluten-free

Celiac disease (an intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley) is an autoimmune condition in which the inner surface of the small intestine becomes damaged, leading to reduced absorption of all nutrients. People with Type 1 diabetes are 10 times more likely than people without Type 1 diabetes to have it; and the only treatment for the condition is maintaining a gluten-free diet. At first, a diagnosis of celiac disease may seem overwhelming, given that gluten can be found in so many things: breads, pastries, pasta, and cereals, as well as lipstick, medicines, and condiments. There’s also the potential for cross-contamination; for example, a gluten-free meal prepared with utensils that have been used with foods containing gluten can still cause problems for people with celiac disease. Until recently, few people had ever heard of celiac disease, but in recent years awareness of it – and of a condition provisionally known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity – is increasing. As a result, a wider variety of gluten-free food products is available than ever before. The following resources offer guidance on shopping, cooking, and eating safely for people with celiac Continue reading >>

    Is Coke Zero okay for someone with Diabetes???

    There are no carbohydrates in Coke Zero. It is made with Sucralose which is the generic name of Splenda. If there's no listing for carbohydrates it's because there are no carbohydrates, sugar is a carb. When reading the nutrition facts on the label it will list the total number of carbohydrates and then break it down the types. Sugar alcohols have less of an effect on glucose levels so most people count half of them when counting carbs. Fiber has no effect on glucose levels because it can't be digested so if counting you can subtract those. The rest is usually listed as sugar or other carbohydrates and they're the ones that will raise you glucose levels. There's no need to read ingredients to find out if there are carbs in something, it will be listed in the chart. If you however want to know what ingredient is contributing to the count, then by all means, read on. Most diet cola's will be carb free and calorie free. I personally think Coke Zero tastes better than any other diet cola I've tried so far.
