Where To Find Help With A Gluten Free Diet

doctor with appleHow many times have you read an article and it tells you to speak with your doctor about how to follow a gluten free diet?  A recent Washington Post article recommends working with your doctor to follow a safe gluten free diet and ensure you are getting proper nutrition. The Natural Product Expo West magazine recommends this approach too.  As important as it is to have a doctor help you understand if you have celiac disease or other medical conditions that mandate a gluten-free diet, most doctors do not understand what it takes to actually live a gluten-free lifestyle.

It is fairly safe to assume that unless a doctor or their family is gluten-free, they will not know much about the details of the diet.  They can tell you what to avoid (barley, rye, oats and wheat) but not what to actually consume.  Or more important, they may not be able to tell you how to eat a nutrient-dense gluten free diet for optimal health.

Some helpful resources to learn more about the gluten free diet are:

    I would like to know if you have come up with recipes that are Gluten-Free and are for Diabetices. My granddaughter has both and there is alot of carbs in gluten-free produces. We learned that 1 person that has Diabetics will get Celiac.All these paople that are making gluten recipes better start trying to fit the diabetic part in it to.
    Thank you

    Wow, what a great resource. I just stumbled across you from the PBS’ websites ’10 Best Food Blogs’. Can’t believe I didn’t know you existed!

    My mother has major problems with gluten so finds eating in the US a huge problem (not outside the US as much, as everything in Europe says gluten-free on the package if it doesn’t include gluten and in Asia most foods she eats don’t have gluten).

    Will send your site onto her. She’ll love it :)
