Hi, a question for type 1 diabetics who also have coeliacs disease. When the gut is inflamed do you ever experience carbohydrate malabsorption? Say for example you eat something that would ordinarily provoke a blood glucose spike shortly after but instead glucose levels are conspicuously unchanged or perhaps even figuratively "nose diving"?
This was my first coeliacs disease symptom, i never experienced the "classic" gastrointestinal symptoms personally (gas, bloating, diarrhoea). My symptoms manifested as sudden carboyhydrate malabsorption for certain foods, dizziness, crippling fatigue , tinnitus and nerve pain. Thankfully when gluten was removed from diet most of those symptoms either vanished or eased considerably ( minus the lingering fatigue).
I'm curious really if this is uncommon or have any other person's experienced the above.
Especially interested in hearing from type 1 diabetics who also have coeliacs. Any relevant input welcome though.
