Hi I'm new to this forum, Have type 2, IBS, have a benzoate allergy, and am gluten and lactose free. I've asked GP's, consultants, dieticians etc etc to help put a diet together, and have been refused by all. They say it's not possible. Any comments or suggestions???? By the way, there was chat about gluten-free bread. This will probably raise your blood sugar more than ordinary bread. A lot of gluten-free stuff is made with - wait for it!!!! - golden syrup or black treacle to help it stick together.
