In Topic: Feeling Worse After Feeling Better

Thanks so much to both of you for the replies!! It felt really good to read them!

I don't eat out but am living with roommates who do eat gluten and although I'm very careful not to get cc'd, there is a chance it's been happening... I'm now 4 days lactose free and I'm seeing some improvement. I'm also thinking about taking probiotics and something that could help with the inflammation issues. I also keep a food log. So I guess it's all about patience now.. :)

Hey Everyone,

Ginger tea is the best! I drink it with lemon and honey.

About the nettle - I don't know if you can find it in the US but when I got bored of the taste of nettle tea, I started to take it in pill form..

In Topic: I Wonder If My Dad Has Dh

Hi,

I was having a bumpy rash on my hands too before I went gluten free. My bloodtest was negative and I still don't have the biopsy results, yet. The dermatologist didn't even mention DH or biopsy so I went gluten for 3 months ago to see what happens and the rash has improved a lot but from time to time still cracks and bleeds and most of the time still itchy. It used to look like this at its worst: http://i.imgur.com/eTiZl.jpg. The daily ups and downs make it difficult to see the overall improvement so I would recommend you taking a picture of your dad's rash now and look at it a few weeks/months later while trying the gluten-free diet. Doing the biopsy before starting the diet would be a good idea, too.
My grandfather has also had 'eczema' on his palms for most of his life and sometimes I realize that I'm scatching my hands in the exact same way as he does. Nothing really has helped him with the rash so I wouldn't be surprised if he had celiac, too. I think it's important to raise consciousness about celiac desease in your environment but you also need to accept if not everybody is ready for living a gluten-free life... :)

Good luck!

Hi,

So have you done the juice fast?

I actually realized that I have celiac after breaking a 10 day fast and building up my diet gradually. That's when I got sick after eating bread. My experience is that after the fast you don't crave for breads anymore so it can be a really good start for going gluten free!!

Thank you for your answers. My TransGlutaminase igA was 3 U/ml and they noted that it is a weak positive from 10.
