Overall I would say that Gluten is bad for you. Of course, not everyone has to worry about it. But if you have or developing Type II diabetes, have have high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, you should limit or eliminate gluten intake.
It's not just bread, it's crackers, snacks, and just about all baked goods. Take a trip to the grocery store and try to find foods that do not have gluten in it. This includes wheat, wheat flour, and most types of flour.
If you are that person that has to high a blood sugar count, you should serious limit or eliminate gluten intake. I'm not a doctor, but I know from first hand experience. Just not eating bread, I felt better, and my blood pressure dropped overall. And the side effects of the Metformin were lessened.
When I first started taking Metformin, it basically laid me out sick and asleep. Part of that was my diet, what the medicine was interacting with. But equally important was the warning that says to "take with food". That didn't mean before I ate, or after I ate. It meant between bites. The symptoms have all but disappeared when I follow that.
But Gluten intake and Medicine are only half of the equation. Two other major factors are sugar intake and exercise. All four of these things blend together to lower my blood sugar level. More to follow in a future post.
