I can eat gluten just fine, but my sister has celiac disease (gluten intolerance). Having it sucks, but it's not the hardest intolerance to work around.>I might have high blood sugar
Gluten is the protein I thought. Shouldn't impact your blood sugar more or less than gluten free breads.
Assuming you want to avoid gluten rather than sugars or carbs, there's hope: Not eating gluten became super popular with the "alternative nutrition" crowd a few years back, and hipsters and hippies alike decided to buy it, which is amazing - because as a result there's a large variety of gluten free products.
For normal nutrition, avoiding carbs that have wheat or gluten and instead using carbs that naturally don't have any (rice and potatoes) are great. Some gluten free pasta is fine as well, though that will depend on brands. I'd recommend you buy the ones your local store has and try those first, especially the cheap ones.
Sadly, the way my sister describes it is gluten free baked goods are usually where the quality suffers (or they are super expensive). She got herself a bread machine and a pasta machine and makes both herself. Her breads don't taste as good as a homemade sourdough, but better than the usual supermarket bread, and it's economical as well. So I'd recommend getting those. Bread machines second hand are super cheap, they seem to be in the category of "a lot of people buy them, don't use them, and they take up too much space to just stand around", which drives second hand prices down. Just remember to give them a good wash, both because of gluten and because of general nasty surprises you may find. Also be aware that there's a lot of "hidden" gluten especially in sauces like cheaper (and worse) soy sauces. Your mileage may vary and it depends on your health situation, but for her she says anything that states "contains traces of gluten", she doesn't eat and anything that says "may contain traces of gluten" she does.
Good luck sushi. >>939>Apparently Celiac's disease is real brutal,
It really depends on the person, but if you have celiac's disease and keep eating gluten, it tends to get worse and worse until it can get really bad. So if you just have a intolerance, probably Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
