I read about this in LR4YT.  That section talked about what CI caused, but not about what it actually IS.  How do I know if I have it?  I sure hope I don't...being a nonnie with very little IAP, fats don't help me much, either, which would leave only protein as a good source of calories. :'(

Carbohydrate intolerance is the inability to digest certain carbohydrates due to a lack of one or more intestinal enzymes. Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal distention, and flatulence.

Thank you, that is what I was looking for.  That's good news.  I don't seem to have those symptoms, and as skinny as I am, I doubt insulin resistance is a problem.  Unless being really skinny is a symptom! :o

diabetics come in all sizes, it all depends on how your pancreas produces and puts out insulin.  If you have relatives that are diabetic, there is more likely a chance of developing it. (parents, grandparents, brothers,sisters of self and)

Oh, no problem there.  No family history.  In fact, I tended more toward hypoglycemia before BTD/GTD.
