Happy birthday and may God bless you today!
Hello - I was diagnosed with DH on 3/1/06. When I went to the dermatologist I had the rash on my elbows and the genital area. He took a biopsy from one of my elbows and called to tell me that I had DH. I've assumed that the genital rash went along with the DH diagnosis since I've never had that problem before one way or the other. I still have both and am told that it will take a very long time 2 years or more to get rid of the rash because gluten stays in your body a very long time. I've been gluten free since the diagnosis and am still in the throws of "what to eat". I'm getting there though. I've done lots of research and read in several places that if you have DH, you automatically have celiac disease and that you don't even need a biopsy of the small intestine to know that. Anyone else? Thanks for being there! Harplady
