I don't know if this is the right place to put this but ive been gluten free since july 10 and ive noticed recently my nails are becoming really brittle, which ive always had strong nails, and ive been breaking out with acme way more then usual and frequent. has anyone else had these problems? i know im probably not getting enough vitamins and minerals in my system. as of right now im just taken a gluten free B-12. any help or advice would be very helpful and i would be very great-full.

It would be a good idea to add a good gluten free multivitamin to the B12. What are you eating? Mostly whole unprocessed foods will help you heal and absorb more from your food. Are you using topical products with gluten ingredients? If so you may want to avoid them for a bit and see if that helps your skin clear up.

Hi!Once I read somewhere online that brittle nails with ridges in them are the sign of iron deficiency. I had brittle nail and I was iron deficient. Maybe you can check that.

Before I went gluten free I had trouble with acne for 5 years. I found out what was causing mine. It was milk. I reduced the intake of milk product rapidly. Soon I ate somothing with milk in it, next day I had big acne on my face. Milk was my trigger for acne. I don't eat nothing with casein in it and my face is clean again.

I also had trouble with gas and .... after I drank milk or ate ice cream. I tought that I'm milk intolerant. In July 2010 I had test for milk allergy. I tested positive for milk(casein).

Try to abvoid lactose and casein for maybe two months and you might see the improvement. Anyway we should avoid lactose, or milk when we go gluten free.

Me too. If I consume dairy, my face will break out the next day.

    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best
