I’ve been type 1 diabetic for 11 years. I’m first generation as there is no history of diabetes in my family. I’ve felt sick, fatigued, and have been showing many different symptoms of Celiacs disease for a few years now and I’m tired of being… tired.
So, I’ve been talking with a friend of mine who has Celiacs and I am interested to find out if I do as well. He mentioned that doctors will typically take a biopsy of your small intestine after you’ve ingested large amounts of wheat.
I’m scared to do that. :*(
So, my friend said that I can just change my eating habits for a few weeks and see if it makes me feel better. If I do feel better, slowing introduce gluten into my diet again and see if it makes me feel worse.
Where do I start?
What is the main food that I should stop eating?
People have said, no flour, no concentrated fats. But, what am I really looking at here? For those of you who are diabetic and celiac, what do you eat??? I feel like I already spend so much time on what I choose to ingest… but I’m really tired of feeling sick.
