Diabetes and Celiac: "What Carbs Can I Eat?" (continued)
Naturally gluten-free and full of vitamins and fiber, fruit should not be forgotten in a diabetes and celiac diet. Aim for two to three servings per day of low-glycemic fruit, such as a cup of blueberries at breakfast and an apple at lunch.

Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, salad greens, green beans, asparagus, mushrooms, peppers, and zucchini are gluten-free, low carb, high fiber, and full of vitamins and minerals. Aim for three servings daily.

More than 15 seasons playing NFL football at the highest level and he still finds areas in his game that require fixing. It's been 10 years for us in the game of type 1 diabetes and I still have so much to learn. Not to compare my diabetes management success to Peyton Manning's football success. If anything, I'm more like Peyton's brother, Eli. I...
