Diabetes with cealiacs - can anyone help?
4

triballeader · 25/08/2022 17:33

DH has recenetly been diagnosed type2. Then has just found out about the cealiacs that has been burbling away and making him horribly ill for years. he thougt it was just IBS. He also has an egg [as in anaphylaxis and hospital] and nut allergy.

I am currently pulling my hair out trying to find gluten, nut and egg free recipes. No-one appears to make anything so I am back cooking everything from absolute scratch. This is worse than my sons severe allergy diet as he can eat gluten. DH has repeatedly asked for a referral to a dietician but not currently possible unless he lands in A&E and needs to be admitted for anaphylaxis. I am tempted to go on cooking strike but I know takeaways are not an option.

Has anyone had to deal with diabtties and cealiacs? If so have you spotted either a book that caters for both or can share a URL of a sane source of recipes online that I could try?

Diabetes U.K. has a GF recipe section, hopefully it will be obvious which ones don’t have egg & nuts in so you don’t have to spend too long filtering those out.

Becky Excell does loads of GF recipes (although quite a bit baking and too sugar heavy for a diabetic but she does mains also) and often has swaps listed for eggs & omits nuts. If you follow her on Instagram she also posts recipes and she has an ‘accidentally gluten free’ info bit and lists things by store eg Morrisons here but type accidentally gluten free & the name of the supermarket you shop in for a list you can use.

If you look for vegan gluten free recipes, that will save you worrying about eggs & you could just add meat?

Amys Kitchen offer allergy friendly ready meals if you are desperate for a night off cooking, although maybe he should cook a bit too!, some are GF & they have nut/egg free ones but you would have to check which ones. The website isn’t flowing as well as it should atm

There is a link between T1DM, coeliac disease and thyroid disease. I know you said he has T2DM but do look at symptoms of thyroid disease too
My mum has all 3 and it does take some adjusting and in some ways T1 is easier than T2 but it is very do-able
Good luck

Thank you so very much.
I was coping right up until the 'no gluten' was added on top of everything else. DS has to avoid nuts, eggs, legummes, shellfish and milk. Now I know why and where he migt have inherited his serious allergies.

Definatly in need of some hopeful inspiration to get me back into the kitchen to try again.
