  1. I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid.

    Have had a rash off and on for 10 years.

    Have just learned that Celiac and Hashimoto's can be related.

  2. Yes, does anyone know how long? I have been gluten free for a week now and there is no improvement.
  3. Thanks again. May look into elimination diet. Don't have the insurance to see another doctor. I surely didn't know that about soy. Thought it was supposed to be good for gals. Oh well, can't believe what you hear on TV. Ha!
  4. Any idea how long these itchy bumps will last? It's been 4 months now. They used to come and go in about 3 weeks, but I've had this traveling itching since March. Started on my head, went down my neck, and now on my arms.
  5. Thanks, kareng. I have been looking around and like anything else find yeas and nays. Guess the proof is in the pudding so to speak. If I feel better off of gluten and my rash goes away that is the ultimate lab test, isn't it?
  6. Has anyone used Enterolabs to get a diagnosis rather than going to a dr?
  7. That is surely good to know. At least I can keep my beans.
  8. Thanks for posting this. I have just checked my shampoo (Aveda Pure Abundance). Would you believe hydrolyzed wheat protein and wheat starch? I am going shopping tomorrow so I will definitely be on the look out for Shikai and Himalaya. I never knew before I found this forum that you had to check products that go on your skin. I should have....duh...I have a rash that is torturing me day and night.
  9. Thanks, Paul. As I explained to Marilyn they did the biopsy wrong as they took skin from a lesion. I am finding the DH forum quite interesting. Learning so much, but I still feel lost and overwhelmed. How did you find out there were so many things you couldn't eat?
  10. Thanks, Marilyn. That's good info. I've been reading on this site much of the afternoon and now know that the biopsy that was done was done incorrectly. It should have been done from healthy skin and it was done on a leision. No one has ever told me to avoid soy. Another eyeopener. I guess it makes the Hashi's worse? I have been "trying" to be gluten free for about a week now, but haven't been as strict as I should. For instance I ate grits this morning and the package said "it may contain wheat and milk." I've got a lot to learn.
  11. I am new to this site and just posted "Lost" in the Prediagnosis section. This looks like my rash, too. Also, thought it was eczema, but now see it may be DH. Wow, this is enlightening. Thanks for posting your pic.
  12. I don't know about the celiac because I am trying to figure that out myself, but I do know something about Candida. I had to follow a yeast-free diet and take a medication called Hypo A Nystatin to get rid of my candida. The drs at Hotze Health and Wellness Center in Houston, Tx are experts when it comes to treating this. You can find some info on their website There is also a radio show on KSEV 700AM from 12:00-1:00 CDT. They do talk other things like hormones, but I have heard candida discussed on the show before.
  13. 10 years ago I developed a nasty rash that would come and go. It could be anywhere on my body. Would start out as a small pimple and quickly progress to hot, raised, incredibly itchy patches. Have gone to 3 dermatologists and they say it is atopic dermatitis (a skin biopsy was done). Went to an allergy doctor who took a look at it and said I didn't have an allergy, although he didn't test for any. Have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid and osteopenia. No digestive symptoms other than lots of flatulence. I am 60. At the present time the rash has come to stay and has been here 4 months now. Previously it would only last 2-3 weeks. Could this be celiac? Thank you for your help.
