Today i found out i have coeliac disease!! it was only 6 years ago i found out i was type one and my diet was majorly cut in half and now its been sliced down AGAIN!!

I have a bit of concern of what foods i can and cant eat now, sugar, bread, pasta all a no no but jaysus whats left except fruit and veg and i do love them but my main source of carbs would be either bread or pasta, will i be expecting to suffer alot more lows now??

And a pint of Guinness is outta the question! : . (

Please provide me with any info or advice if you have any!!

Thanks a mill

Yes i understand that very well. I also have celiac disease and it is not fun but there is a website that you can go to and find out about the foods. Celiac.com is the site and you can order pasta and bread and pretezals and even ice cream. if you want just ask me anything.

Thanks a mill sciboy!!

It helps to know im not the only unfortunite one!!

It took me a while to get used to the term 'diabetic' and now its even harder to get used to the term celiac iswell. Do you find u need to take more meds/insulin when you eat the cleiac foods, im finding is rising my suagrs then im having these huge hypos at night time!

Back to the doctor i go i guess!!

thanks again!

There's a common link between the two diseases. If you do cut back on your carbs then you would need to cut back on your insulin, you shouldn't have more lows if you just match what you inject with what you eat. There are also quite a few gluten free beers, some even Guinness like!

It would be worthwhile talking to your doctor and seeing if you can get referred to somebody who deals with both diseases who can help you with food choices.
