Well, welcome to the forum you never wanted to be a part of. We all wish we had a key to speeding up the process. I haven't seen any medical answers to that question nor have I read anyone who has dh who found a way to speed it up. Unfortunately! It's a matter of the antibodies. Gluten is not under the skin, the antibodies are. One would have to find a way to get rid of antibodies. Sigh.
Here is a link for the low iodine diet which may really help you b/c most of us get bad flares from iodine & that is medically documented. Check vitamins for iodine content also -- most contain it. And of you go more than a month or two on it, then you will want to get your thyroid checked on a regular basis to make sure you aren't damaging it.
Here's a link for help with the itch....etc....
Read this thread too:
In the later stages, I also found soaking in a hot epsom salts bath to help. And along the way, some things that helped at some point would stop helping & back & forth so you'll have experiment & may have to keep changing when something stops working for you & then you may go back to that & it helps again. In other words --- whatever gives you relief!
Drinking lots of water is always a good thing & I can't say that it flushed any antibodies out but it certainly doesn't hurt. I have always been a big water drinker though.
With dh, most of us do not get the GI symptoms that regular celiacs do or we get them much less severe & fewer symptoms. You may be surprised as you go along & find things you thought were not symptoms, in fact were symptoms. We do still have damage to our villi though even though we are "symptomless".
DH is extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten!!!! This is why I counsel everyone with dh to be ultra cautious in their diet & don't even risk eating out unless it's a totally gluten-free restaurant. If we get cc'd then we just dump more antibodies under our skin & prolong our torture & that can add months to years to our dh prison sentence.
If you have any questions or just want to vent & rant & rave --- we're here. Been there, done that.
