From Jackson, Wisconsin, USA:

How long does it take for the blood glucose levels to stabilize after starting a gluten free diet for someone with both diabetes and celiac disease?


In my experience, it take at least three to four months for the glucose levels to stabilize. Keep in mind that gut epithelium takes at least six months to completely heal after starting a gluten free diet.
