Of it is DH, Dapsone may help reduce the rash in combination with a gluten-free diet. Bit it's wicked stuff...you'll need monitoring.
A good number of DH sufferers are iodine sensitive. I was successful at keeping my DH "down" by going gluten-free and low iodine (thyca.org diet) for 2 weeks - then adding iodine back slowly. Took about 2-3 months to be able to eat high iodine foods in abundance.
Iodine doesn't cause DH but it can trigger it.
Thanks. My bloodtests came back that the doctor was running for other autoimmune disorders/diseases and it cam back negative. So, I guess that's positive as it's not a lupus or another serious condition on top of Celiac. I'm going with it's a form of DH. Iodine - is that mainly salt? I will have to google it to see what it's in. 8-) I'm on predisone right now and it's helping clear it up. Thanks for your feedback. Really appreciate the positives and not negatives. When we are at this stage, we're very sensitive as to what things can be so it helps to hear positive approaches to this and not so much negatives. 8-)
