Gluten-Free Diet Doesn’t Lower Diabetes Risk

A gluten-free diet in the first 12 months of life does not lower the risk of later developing type 1 diabetes in children who have a family history of the disease, says a German study. Previous studies had suggested that babies whose diets included gluten in their first months of life might be more likely to develop type 1 than youngsters whose diets did not.

Balancing Diabetes and Celiac Disease

Max Bruno, a freshman at the State University of New York at New Paltz, tries to get to the gym about four times a week. He says that he knows his limits for working out, but likes to push himself.  "I just have to be careful," he explains. "About an hour or so after I'm done working out, my blood sugar drops really low."

Screening Practices and Management of Celiac Disease and Type 1 Diabetes

Both celiac disease (CD) and type 1 diabetes (T1D) are autoimmune diseases. In CD the immune response is triggered by the ingestion of gluten, resulting in chronic inflammation and villous atrophy in the small intestine. Treatment requires permanent elimination of gluten from the diet. In T1D, pancreatic islet beta cells are damaged resulting in loss of endogenous insulin production. Treatment includes daily insulin injections combined with meal planning and exercise. Nutrition management of the individual with both T1D and CD can be challenging for both the patient and the dietitian.

Season's Eatings (Allergy-Free)
Season's Eatings (Allergy-Free)

The holiday season is here. Time to deck the halls, trim the tree, and most importantly, fire up the oven. For most Americans, the holidays mean chestnuts roasting on an open fire, homemade pumpkin pie, and turkey with all the trimmings. But what if you must cook for a family plagued with food allergies? What if you have one yourself? Does your holiday feast have to be a bland, flavorless affair? And if not, is it inevitable that you (or someone) must suffer the decidedly unfestive fate of being stuck at a dinner table full of foods that you can't enjoy?

What is the Connection Between Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac Disease?

“The prevalence of celiac disease is increased in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus,” according to Turkish researchers. “Since many patients may be asymptomatic, it is suggested that all diabetic patients should be screened for this disease.”

Diabetes and Celiac Disease

Sailing on Smooth Waters

I can't wait to see what my next A1C will be! My last one was 7.3%, with my blood glucose up, down and all around. I was low, I was high, and just way out of control.

It’s No Secret

Untreated celiac disease in children can stunt growth and cause lower A1Cs. However, researchers conducting a longitudinal study of children with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease say that following a gluten-free diet can restore normal growth and contribute to even lower A1Cs—and might also mitigate the blood-glucose deterioration commonly present during puberty.

Researchers Find Cases of Celiac Disease in Children With Type 1 Diabetes; Most Did Not Have Symptoms

All children with type 1 diabetes should be screened for celiac disease, say researchers from Wisconsin, who drew their conclusion after finding cases of celiac disease in children with type 1. Most of the children who tested positive for celiac disease did not show any symptoms of this illness.

Children of Type 1s Susceptible to Celiac Disease

If someone in your family has type 1 diabetes, you should be screened for celiac disease, a chronic condition in which the wall of the small intestine is damaged by a toxic reaction to gluten, a substance found in some grains. Untreated celiac disease can lead to a number of nutritional deficiencies, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation.

Grimacing Over Grains - Abstract #32

Celiac disease is a chronic intestinal disorder in which gluten intolerance interferes with the absorption of many nutrients. Eating foods containing gluten, which is found in wheat, rye oats and barley, stimulates an autoimmune response in the intestines. The immune system then attacks the tissue of the small intestine, destroying the lining that absorbs nutrients. On a gluten-free diet, the small intestine begins to heal and returns to normal or nearly normal
