[IP] Another with Celiac Disease



Gus(8) was dxd 2 1/2 year ago with DM and Celiac Disease within a week.  He
started pumping in September, so we've really had no experience regulating
BGs on anything but a GF diet.  We've also experimented with a modified
macrobiotic diet, eating closer to the "whole" food. This means a lot less
processed food.  However I do think that GF foods metabolize faster. Other
members of the family who eat the GF baked goods I make say they feel
"cleaner" than when they eat a lot of gluten containing foods....  I can
only attribute this to the (perhaps) "gluey" effect of gluten. When eating
pizza and pasta Gus boluses using a square wave over an hour at the most.
This seems to cover those carbs....  The only thing I know for sure is that
the proverbial  learning curve is long and steep!
