I hope you are not referring to me as I don't believe I've done that. I do believe that there is at least a one-way relationship between the two as almost all low carb diets tend to be gluten free, but you can certainly eat gluten free without eating what I would describe as a low carb diet.

However for many people, gluten containing foods tend to be a large part of their total caloric intake and when you cut them out and get those calories from other sources those people often end up eating fewer carb calories as a percentage of their total calories than before, or what might be referred to as a lower carb diet. Just my $.02 and feel free to disagree.
