In this book, pages 50-56, the author talks about
allergy to milk may cause insulin resistance. Pages 57-64 discuss how gluten intolerance can cause insulin resistance. Apparently the same type of tissue changes in the digestive system that cause celiac disease can also raise your blood sugar.
This is over and above metabolism of carbs. Unfortunately the book is copyrighted and I cannot extract any content. Perhaps you can browse it online.
The author says that this is backed scientifically, I dunno. But cutting back on gluten did lower my fasting blood sugar. Cutting back on milk had no effect for me.www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=1605296759
