Gluten intolerance – a new challenge

Gluten Intolerance – A New Challenge

Hello Friends. We have recently adjusted out food life style in the family due to new revealed Gluten intolerance condition.

Let me be consistent and not jump forward without explanation.

My T1 daughter was complaining on her stomach pain for a couple of months, my middle non T1 daughter started complaining on her stomach at the same time. Knowing my Lina, I thought she was just mocking her older sister.

At the same time my T1 was complaining about her pain almost every day. At school she would go to the office and ask to lay down. We are lucky to be in a so caring school, my gratitude to the management is endless.

Meanwhile I heard somewhere that type 1 diabetes can cause celiac or Gluten Intolerance. I was not sure because I had never encountered with such a condition, so I decided to check my Type 1 Albina for antibodies.

The diagnosis was confirmed with pediatrician endocrinologist. Albina did not have celiac but she is Gluten Intolerant. I decided to go ahead and check my middle non Type 1 daughter. Turns out she is gluten intolerant as well. Then, I decided to check myself.

Why myself? Because for almost 2 years I have been traveling from doctor to doctor, telling about my bloating, chronic constipation, pain in my gut which was growing worse and worse to the point where I started to wake up at night. It was strange pulling-burning pain in my gut. No one guessed to check me for celiac or to advise me to go gluten free and see if I would feel better.

Aaaand, I am gluten intolerant as well)) We all did bloodwork but we didnt do scope, doctor said no need in one now.

Now, our house is gluten free and all of us feels way way better.

Now I am on a mission to learn to cook gluten free pastries and other delicious food that involve flour.

These are my gluten free blintzes. Very tasty. I am truly pleased and my family loves it.

Also I think that gluten free dough causes more spikes in blood sugar than a regular one. This is just what I have noticed during this short time while I have been observing my diabetic since she has to follow a new diet style now.
