I noticed some talk about celiac disease around, and a few folks asking me questions.

I was diagnosed with severe Wheat Allergy shortly after my diabetes diagnosis and have been living gluten-free for 4 years now. Every once in a while, I screw up. Over the weekend, I ate some "questionable" bread and broke out in terrible hives! Aaargh.

Anyone else living with this?

btw, I've written quite a bit about the gluten-free life on my blog:

Any type of grain just blows my numbers sky high. Also I found that since I have stopped eating grain altogether I have much more energy. One strange side effect from eating wheat and corn(which is actually a grain, not a vegetable!) was that I stained my clothing and sheets a brownish color when I would sweat. That doesn't happen anymore. Also, my wife commented that I have less gas since I stopped eating the grains.
