TRB added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithHelp! AcneI have been gluten free three months. Overall my health has improved. I can actually eat without being in the bathroom twenty minutes later. However, I have suddenly developed acne (which I've never had a problem with before) and dandruff (which I usually only have in the winter).
I've switched to Nature's Gate Shampoo and Conditioner which is supposedly gluten free. That was about two weeks ago, still no improvement on the dandruff.
Does anyone have any recommendation for good gluten free face wash?
Does anyone have any idea why going gluten free would cause me to develop these two issues? I've read a couple places that dairy can cause acne, but I never had the problems before and I haven't changed the amount of dairy in my diet.
Thanks in advance.

TRB added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithBiopsies Negative For Celiac DiseaseI am actually really surprised that my biopsies were negative because the problems I was having totally cleared up by cutting out gluten. Except if I accidentally get glutened and then I have a horrible reaction ... 10x worse then when I was eating gluten regularly (is that normal?).
Doc is saying biopsies came back with mild gastritis ... but every reference I check says nothing about a gluten free diet as treatment for that.
So I'm wondering why I feel better without gluten when I don't seem to have any reason to be reacting badly to it in the first place. This is all very confusing.

TRB added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithJust Diagnosed - MiI have just been diagnosed with Celiac disease. I'm 29 and live in metro-Detroit. My doctors ran me through everything fast - had a Gastro consultation on Monday and the scopes on Wednesday. After the scopes my doctor said he wanted me to start a gluten-free diet immediately. Then he left ... where the hell do I start? There is so much information out there I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Not to mention I'm not used to thinking about food choices at all, I'm a grab it and go type of gal.
I know the major things to stay away from but all the hidden gluten is worrying me. How badly can being exposed to trace amount of gluten really hurt me? Sites are talking about contamination from using toasters that have been used with gluten breads - can this really cause me problems?
And must importantly of all what kind of beer can I drink???
On the plus side I will have to start eating better and will probably be healthy then I ever have before. I just have to keep positive and take it one meal at a time. Any advice on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated. If anyone is from Michigan I'd love to know of any restaurants in the area. Sadly one restaurant that specialized in gluten-free closed last year.
