Acne After Becoming Gluten Free
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi-

Since having beem diagnosed via biopsy and bloodwork I have been strictly abiding to a gluten-free diet. Here in lies the problem...I have NEVER had problems with acne (I am 41 years old) and since becoming gluten-free I have developed an unbearable case of acne that extends down my neck, chest and shoulders. Anyone know whats going on here??? Thanks in advance for your response!

Maybe rosacea? 30-50 years old is the most common time to be diagnosed. Although it's often called "adult acne," it's actually an inflammatory disorder. Do you blush easily? Is your skin sensitive to sun, wind, soap, skin care products, etc...? A good dermatologist could be very helpful.

I used to have this problem. At its worst it extended down to my buttocks. Avoiding sugar and going on basically a cave man diet made it go away. If I eat sugar it quickly comes back, esp. on my neck first. I used detox herbs (and still do regularly)--many of which I have discussed elsewhere here on the forum. Dandelion root and/or milk thistle caps plus yellow dock or Oregon grape root caps or the direct root boiled for twenty minutes or so should help a lot. Undigested proteins are going into your blood stream and causing your liver to be overloaded with toxins. Thus the skin problem. Healing the lining of the gut is essential--thus slippery elm caps and marshmallow root. Also bromelain/papain caps between meals to take down inflammation and with meals along with pancreatin for improved digestion.

Hope this helps!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
