"I'm sorry, I have trouble reading the lengthy info packed posts. They are SO good but I have trouble following them. Should a person with Celiac also avoid sugar because of the way it interacts with the Gluton, I think that's what you're saying? Or are you saying that the sugary diets of today spur on the "outbreaks" of Celiac disease cases? Forgive me for being so simple minded..."
Sorry. Yes to both. People with celiac disease should avoid gluten and sugar.
Candida albicans is a digestive yeast. It thrives on sugar, and gets out of hand. Gluten and candida have identical protein sequences. The digestive immune system sees gluten and candida as the same antigen.
Celiacs should eliminate sugar and gluten.
My other point is that non-celiacs, people with hypoglycemia and/or
type 2 diabetes should eliminate gluten and sugar. ........same reason different symptoms.
