BabsCanada added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsEczemaNew to the board and not as well-educated as I should be!!
I saw a post where the writer referred to eczema as one of the reasons she suspected a child/family was suffering with celiac.
Is eczema related to celiac disease?
I've been tested for celiac (in about 1995) and got a negative result.
I do have some moderate stomach / bowel troubles, I am insulin-dependant diabetic, and I am at present covered head to toe with eczema. I've been treating it for about 6 months with various prescription creams, all hydrocortizone. It is only getting worse (although eczema has always been a problem for me in winter)
My dad is celiac, since 1995 (which was why I got tested). My mom and only sibling are also celiac. I was quite pleased in 1995! when I escaped the diagnosis (figuring being diabetic was enough), but now when I see eczema mentioned, I wonder.
