It was about 4 or 5 years ago that I was diagnosed with Celiac disease,and I am also a type 1 diabetic.
My diabetes is in pretty good shape My A1C’S which are your blood sugar levels for three months are always in normal ranges. My A1C’s are between 6.2 to 6.7
I discovered a unique discovery I stopped using dairy in my diet and began drinking Almond milk. I am on the heavy side
Almost immediately I began to feel thinner, I have only been doing this for about a month but I have lost now 10 lbs just by doing this change in my diet. I am also watching what I am eating but no real changes.
Since using the Almond Milk I use the Almond Breeze Vanilla Milk. My insulin levels have dropped significantly.
I am on an insulin pump, I use the Animas Ping Pump. Before using the Almond Milk my basal dosage ( which is the insulin I use to make my blood sugars work without eating any food) my insulin dosage for the basal rate was about 70 units per day , now it is 39 units per day. This is totally amazing to me. I have never had my insulin levels this low. I went on line and sure enough it was even there saying that if you are a diabetic your insulin levels might drop by using Almond Milk in your diet.
If my insulin levels are normal between 80 and 90 and I am about to eat a meal I have to be careful how much insulin I use. The old saying less is more. I can not believe this change in my appearance since I dropped the dairy in my diet and have adopted using almond milk in my diet.
I hope this information helps you , please look more into this and consult your doctor but this has really helped me out
