I was just diagnosed with celiac disease which tends to be fairly common among diabetics. Celiac disease is a gluten intolerance, which means I can't have any wheat products. It acts like an allergen in my body, causing my intestines to swell and then they can no longer absorb nutrients so I actually stop growing. I can't tell if it happened because of diabetes, or was a cause of it that was just discovered. We opted out of the invasive intestinal biopsy, and instead are going the alternative route, but most importantly are excluding gluten from my diabetes. Diabetes can be limiting, celiac disease even more, add to that thefact that I am a vegetarian and the food is even more limited, but I love fresh veggies and fruit and and we are looking into rice and other alternatives. More on this as it progresses.
