I have a diagnosis of DH and Lupus but none of my doctors agree as to what is causing 'the rash'. One biopsy indicated a pointer to Lupus and none of the 8 biopsies showed DH although only 2 were done properly for DH.
I am scheduled to meet a new GI in December and hopefully she will combine a Colonoscopy and EGD procedure, the same day. I will ask the GI to biopsy via EGD and maybe that will settle the Celiac DH issue.
I have not been lesion free since Feb 2012 although I have been gluten-free since Oct 2012. I have had minor relief but then all symptoms renew. I'm on mega histamine blockers so that is helping me keep my sanity.
If the procedures are scheduled in mid December, when should I add gluten back to my diet? How much should I intake?
Thanks for any information. I'm sure someone has been in this same situation.
