Re: [IPk] reply for Miriam - gluten and BG control



Thanks Michele,
To aid the pump start we went gluten free without testing and Grace was
really balanced even though the foods are high glycemic++.
Grace is on gluten now, awaiting testing and it is a nightmare as her
absorption is the pits and sometimes spikes at mad times. I struggle too as
the team won't trust my belief of coeliac and  insist on doing the bloods
first whereas I would prefer to go straight to biopsy and save the amount of
time Grace is being exposed to gluten. Ce la vie!
Many thanks
Mir
