Dermatitis Herpetiformis?

08 March 2013 - 07:38 PM

Hey guys.
I know no one will be able to diagnose me, I'm just fed up of continuing to have to eat gluten whilst my waiting for my referral. Well I'm gonna upload a pic (bare with me if it doesn't work) of just above my knee of these odd things I suspect may be dh. Any replies would be very appreciated.

Posterior Blepharitis

23 February 2013 - 08:25 AM

Hello again guys.

Well, I'm still eating gluten, so that I can have a reliable result when it comes to the biopsy (which is 3 months away ugh :(), but anyway, yesterday I had a bowl of pasta, and today I've woken up with a little lump thing inside my eyelid. This is the second time I've had this come up, and on extensive research, I am like 99% sure it is posterior blepharitis. I was wondering if there's any connection between Celiac and blepharitis? I know it can affect healthy people too, but with my other symptoms I think this is highly unlikely.

Thanks in advance. 


Possible Iga Deficiency?

16 February 2013 - 04:09 PM

Hello.
Just to clarify, my username is what it is purely based on the questions i pose, dont mean to be misleading :D. I was directed here by a friend of mine since we've both suspected Celiac disease as a cause of various symptoms. Well I went to the doctor and got an iga antibody blood test for Celiac disease. The result was '<1 U/ml' with a range of 0 - 4. I was okay with my negative result until I talked to said friend and he let me know about possible iga deficiency! I'm not quite sure what all this means if I'm totally honest, other than I could still have celiac! I was just wondering what is the likelihood of being iga deficient? I mean I find it quite unlikely - I've never been told I am or even heard of it prior to this?? & also with my result of less than one, is that any sort of indicator as to whether I am? I'm just pretty overwhelmed with all this info, and would really appreciate some help :)
