That is right folks I have celiac disease to add to my list. In a way I am relieved. For quite some time I have been suffering terribly with stomach issues, very unpleasant, run to the bathroom, bloat to the point of looking pregnant issues. Initially I brushed it off as some sort of bug, but it persisted and only got worse. I had read up on celiac disease and knew that it was common for Type 1 diabetics to suffer with this as well. The more I read the more dread I felt. Every symptom matched mine, every gross and gut twisting symptom. Because I am super stubborn I did not go to the doctor right away. Instead I did my own test by cutting all foods with gluten in them out for one week. After two days of eating gluten free I started to feel much better. I was not bloated at all, my stomach was not rumbling and I no longer had to live in the bathroom. Even my skin started to look better (have been having skin issues since taking neurontin). I finally went to see my doctor and spoke with her about it. She said that from all I was saying all arrows pointed to celiac. She looked at my last blood results and sent me for a bunch more. I had to eat gluten rich foods for the three days prior to the test and for three days was miserable! Now I am off them again and starting to feel good again. At first I was very upset - the last 8 months have been super overwhelming and I feel like I have been hit constantly with bad news. I am still coming to terms with the diabetes diagnosis and now this. I know that eating is going to be a bit more complicated as I have to watch my carb intake as well. I have been reading other blogs with people who suffer with Type 1 and celiac and know I can do this. It will take a lot more preparing on my part, but I think I am up to the challenge. Today I feel positive about it as I just want to feel better and be able to do my exercise (particularly runs) without worrying if I am going to crap myself :) Any tips from other Type 1's and celiacs? Any special recipes you love?
