Going Gluten-Free, Even With Diabetes

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - A new guide can help millions of Americans who have  diabetes, celiac disease or both.

Celiac disease, an inherited autoimmune disorder, makes people incapable  of digesting gluten, so the common treatment for this condition is a totally  gluten-free diet. The strong link between celiac disease and diabetes can  mean a double challenge of finding foods to fit the dietary restrictions of  both conditions. It doesn’t need to mean giving up dishes you love,  however.

To help, chef Nancy Hughes and registered dietitian and diabetes educator  Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton created “Gluten-Free  Recipes for People with Diabetes” for the American Diabetes  Association, a collection of 75 gluten-free recipes for people with diabetes.  It has a meal-planning guide, advice on shopping, cooking tips, grocery  lists, menus, and lists of safe and not-so-safe ingredients. Recipes provide  exchanges and nutritional information to help manage glucose levels. There’s  also an extensive list of resources, including organizations, books, websites  and magazines.

It’s at www.ShopDiabetes.org/gf,  bookstores and (800) 232-6733.
