In Topic: Gluten In Prescription Med.

Just wanted to come back and let anyone in a future search involving that medication know that it was perfectly fine.  No issues and I've been taking the pills for almost 2 weeks.

A paraphrase from Peter Green and Rory Jones' book Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic:

Celiacs show higher amounts of insulin antibodies, which tend to go down on a gluten free diet. Therefore, undiagnosed celiac disease can put you at risk for developing diabetes and many people end up with both.  Those with both tend to get their celiac disease diagnosis second. 


What I gather from the above is that if you haven't yet developed diabetes and stay off gluten successfully, there is a good chance that your pre-diabetes situation will resolve itself. Best of luck in that!

In Topic: Does Dh Disappear And Reappear?

DH is supposed to be INSANELY itchy and lasts and lasts long after exposure to gluten. Scabs form over the water-filled hives as you scratch even in your sleep. Folks get scars from scratching.

Allergies affecting the skin can be itchy, but I do not think they would be in the insane category. I get hives from the cold that wheal up and itch, but they resolve quickly as do some of my reactions from meds. An antihistamine usually does the trick. Nothing seems to help DH except for strict avoidance.

Thank you!!  This is exactly what I wanted to know.

Hi Ladies-

The first thing I thought was allergies- most likely something related to food (as a child I broke out in hives to strawberries and chocolate milk and it eventually faded away).  But seeing as though I don't have and therefore aren't familiar with DH along with her genetic chances, I wanted to check.  So I'm assuming that DH sticks around without fading quickly while hives can come and go- is that correct?
