Aunt Jayne's Activity
Aunt Jayne added a topic in Super Sensitive Celiacs & Gluten SensitiveCan Gluten Be Absorbed Through The Skin?I was still having DH and gastric issues after going gluten free and finally was told that it could be because of the shampoo, laundry detergent, soap etc. that I was using.
I threw out all of my old stuff (actually gave it to my daughter) and started with only gluten free products. My issues went away and I have not had any problems since unless I accidentally use the wrong soap at my daughter's house etc.
I have been told by a couple of GP's that it is no different from a nicotine patch or whatever, things are absorbed through the skin and into your body.
I was recently told that the Mayo clinic disagrees with these doctors. They say it isn't possible.
What do you think?
Have you had a similar experience?
Do you know of any clinical studies that show gluten can, in fact be absorbed through the skin?
