Gluten Free Diet Can Help Control Diabetes

Diabetic patients who live gluten-free lives see a significant decrease in their blood sugar levels (BSL). Sticking to a gluten free diet and having a regular dose of workout tend to make your BSL lower, give you more energy, plus a healthier outlook in life.

First and foremost, you must educate yourself about gluten. Gluten refers to the protein found in wheat and other related grains. Such gluten protein could not be digested by those who suffer from this particular illness called Celiac disease..

Health experts came up with this diet program in order to help tons of individuals suffering from Celiac disease, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Diabetes, as well as Wheat Allergies. Searching for foods as well as recipes that don’t contain wheat, barley, rye, among others, is a pain in the neck to most people. Oats may not have gluten, but they are usually processed in the factories in which wheat products are processed. That said, when buying oats, see to it that you look for the gluten-free label.

Gluten is also found in food additives that are used in stabilizing as well as thickening foods that are processed. A lot of alcoholic beverages contain gluten, too. Gluten free diet is a diet that steers clear of gluten completely. It is committed to being free of any whole grain as well as anything produced with grains.

Most individuals on gluten restricted diets are aware of the fact that gluten free is no joke. You must be fully committed and religious to it.

For diabetic people, restriction of the amount of gluten they eat will allow to have better control over diabetes. With such control of the levels in the blood sugar, these people will be able to lessen a lot of diabetes medications.

Are there benefits to being gluten free if you DON’T have Celiac Disease?

Question by Nina_L: Are there benefits to being gluten free if you DON’T have Celiac Disease?
I do not have Celiac Disease, although a few of the symptoms fit me pretty well. I’m looking for a way to feel better and generally “eat cleaner”. Are there any benefits to eating gluten-free for people who don’t necessarily have troubles with gluten?

Best answer:

Answer by Clarissa
How do you know you don’t have it? What symptoms do you have?

If you have the symptoms, you probably have it or another form of gluten intolerance. It’s extremely common. I think you should give the diet a try and see if it helps. I’ve been doing it for about 6 months and have seen tremendous health benefits. I asked a couple doctors about getting tested for celiac because I had a bunch of symptoms and they laughed me out of their offices. I decided to try the diet on my own and symptoms that I didn’t even know were symptoms went away. It was amazing. It makes me mad that they don’t know more about it. Basically, if you have sensitivity you will feel better, if you don’t, you won’t. But it’s still worth a shot. Let me know if you have any questions!

Sometimes there are benefits. It’s impossible to say unless you try it. If you go gluten free for 3 weeks, with no cheating, then do a challenge where you eat gluten at every meal for a day, you will know whether or not there are any benefits for you.
