  1. Constant joint pain even with no gluten

    fargo,     What is your current Vitamin D level??    Low D may cause joint pain in some people.
  2. Fraud?

    Gene testing may rule out Celiac Disease.
  3. Were you eating gluten before the biopsy?     You could have DH.
  4. My Turn For Possible Dh

    Try going to a new Dermatologist.
  5. Giwi777,      When was the last time your Vitamin D was checked??      I had many pain issues when mine was very low.    
  6. WoW....       You have DH and want to eat gluten.    How were you diagnosed with DH?       It could take quite a while for that gluten to exit your body and stop causing a DH reaction.    I would rethink that approach.
  7. Disability

    Do you have any hearing loss?
  8. Sit Down Dinner Wedding Reception Help!

    GFDonna,  "Hope for the Best", isn't an option for those that must eat gluten-free!!!      You must step up and ask if there's a gluten-free option offered!     I've found Chefs for Weddings to be very knowledgeable and go out of their way to accommodate our gluten-free requests.   Good Luck, 
  9. Hives Only Reaction

    Read up on Dermatitis Herpetiformis and have a Dermatologist take biopsies.
  10. Aczone Causing Bleeding

    I've used both without any negative issue.      Aczone Gel works Great and doesn't require blood labs.
  11. Aczone Causing Bleeding

    Was it Dapsone or Aczone ??     
  12. Nesting :-)

    SkyBlue,   Please educate me, as to cleaning a Toaster to make it Gluten Free???
  13. Muscle Weakness And Pain

    answerseeker,    Two things come to mind,   1, See a Dermatologist   2,  Have your Vitamin levels checked.   My Vitamin D was dangerously low and it took 9 months of Prescription strength VITAMIN D to bring it up within a normal level.   As it came up, my neck, shoulder, arms, hands, fingers, back, and other joint pain found relief.    
  14. What Other "celiac Rash" Besides Dh?

    answerseeker,  Try going to a Dermatologist.    I have DH (diagnosed by biopsy & blood labs) and it doesn't always act the same.    What makes you so sure your getting Glutened???      I get tummy & lower GI issues from Dairy, Nuts and recently Corn.     It's taken me 4 years and 4 months to add Dairy, Nuts & Corn to my list of foods I can't eat.     Keep in mind that I went through 2 rounds of allergy testing in the past 4 years.    Both times I was negative to those three foods and may never test positive on an allergy test.       IMO,   a good GI Doctor won't give advice on a skin issue.   He should be sending you to a Dermatologist.    Would you use a Plumber to diagnose your Electrical issues???   Good Luck,
  15. That Dentist passed away quite awhile back.    My current Dentist is well aware.
