I have ALDI near me, I stopped shopping there when I went gluten-free. What type of products?


YOgurt, some dried fruits, a lot of Aldi canned goods now say 'gluten free' on the label. They also have Fit and Active meatballs that appear to be gluten-free, I bought a bag to try. Some lunch meats and all their hummus is labeled gluten-free.

#659195 Results Of Iodine Patch Test

Posted by ChemistMama on 08 December 2010 - 11:20 AM

i tried this test too- i placed the bandaids with iodine ( 2 of them) next to my suspected DH patch. i only lasted an hour- because of the burn. the skin was stained for about a week. one part of my skin was actually BURNED & peeling & raw. i was afraid cause i only did an hour that it wouldnt work- but i did get a few more DH blisters a day later.
im not sure tho- if everyone that feels a burn is a positive for DH, or only a positive for an iodine sensitivity.?? i really just started learning about this.


According to this:http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-the-effects-of-an-iodine-allergy.htm
very few people have iodine allergies/sensitivities, and these usually come about when you have to ingest iodine. Both of your responses to iodine sound like DH to me for sure. In a normal person, the iodine would stain their skin and then be absorbed back into their skin over a few days.

If you've both just been diagnosed, make sure your go gluten-free and steer clear of iodine-containing foods (vitamins, iodized salt, shellfish, seaweed) and NSAIDS (like ibuprofen and naproxen) for a few months, these are known to aggravate your DH. I"ve been gluten-free over 2 years and can eat both with no problem now.

#618090 Healing W/dapsone Diagnostic?

Posted by ChemistMama on 19 June 2010 - 07:20 PM

See the thread here, and my posts about testing:

If you're gluten-free the blood tests will come back negative, you need to be eating gluten so the gluten antibodies can be detected.

In my opinion, stay FAR away from dapsone. Made me very sick. Cleared up the DH in 36 hours, but was totally not worth all the awful side effects. There is topical dapsone you may want to ask about, there's a lot less side effects. It's called Aczone.
