There is gluten in just about everything when eating out. My hubby and I went to a restaurant and I stood there looking at their sheet with the food and their carb counts. I thought I could eat a quiche but their list had it at 55 carbs. I rejected that idea, and asked what's in the chicken salad. Name chicken, a little may, u know usual stuff and bread crumbs. Why on earth would u put bread crumbs in chicken salad.

Not necessarily so. There ARE some restaurants that one can choose gluten-free (and low-carb) items. The best places for this serve steak and salad - easy enough as long as the seasoning on the steak doesn't contain gluten (one can ask).

I usually only eat at restaurants that have a gluten-free menu which increases the possibility that the wait-staff and cooks understand what it takes to serve a gluten-free dish. There are four restaurants I have found to be safe eating in my town. Yes, it's limiting, but at least I can go out now and then.

One thing that's helpful in choosing a place to eat at is if they are a chain and have a website - the major chains will publish an allergy menu, and show what items have gluten - or which ones to avoid. A little advance research helps.

The gluten-free fad troubles me somewhat. However, even though my gastroenterologist says I don't have celiac, it appears that gluten-free bread, of which I eat just one slice daily, helps maintain regularity with fewer bouts of diarrhea.

Oh yes, try to get your doc to test for GAD65 antibodies to rule out or in LADA/type 1.

Parenthetically, I'll mention that insurance companies may not have a billing code for type 1.5, so you may show up on summaries as type 1. Of course, ultimately it makes no difference.

Why is that?

I am gluten intolerant. It's no fad for me and others like me.

Our non-diabetic youngest (early 40s) son has gone gluten-free and all of his digestive symptoms have disappeared, just like when I went grain-free. Nothing else had worked for him.

I had already lost weight when I went gluten free (pre DX). It was amazing watching signs of inflammation vanish. Mainly by losing inches everywhere while my weight only dropped a little. I had to go buy smaller shoes!

And losing most of the acid reflux was nice too.

Nancy, I recently had the same experience. After being grain-free for over 9 months, I've discovered I'm a 6.5, not a 7 (the size I've been wearing for about a decade or 2). Which actually makes it harder for me to find shoes that fit, as my heel is now even narrower than before.

Well i've been losing the inches, but haven't lost weight in 3 months now. Upped the alpha lipoic acid in the last few days, and wow today, 3 lbs lighter. This is true weight loss and not water loss. Does Alpha Lipoic Acide help with weight loss, i
'm taking it for my nerve damage in my toes. Seems to help for that.
