sugar addiction and gluten intolerence
Posted by: Sarah Milburn

Has there been any evidence linking sugar addiction and either gluten intolerence or celiac's disease? Celiac seems to run in my family and since I have stopped eating gluten I have felt much better but have had an increased urge to consume sugar. Right now I am just at the beginning of yet another attempt to quit eating sugar. I have no energy and just feel hungry all the time. I am at a loss as to what to eat as most raw grains are out of the picture already. I am worried about overloading my kidneys with too much protein. Could you possibly offer some advice on some healthy alternatives as snack foods. I have started drinking milk again in place of sodas and find myself eating alot of corn. Is this unhealthy?

No direct link to my knowledge. The link is with gluten which is found in wheat but also in other grains processed in the same facilities with wheat. To be sure you are consuming a grain without gluten you must purchase that which is marked "gluten free." Of course you can also have a sugar problem. Sugar addiction happens when there is fungal overgrowth in the gut and this happens when the immune system in the gut is damaged and can no lnger maintain eubiosis. Use Search This Site above, type in GALT and read up. While you are dysbiotic and craving sugar, suggesting healthy snacks such an seeds and nuts is not likely to help much.
