Need Advice About Dh Testing.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Sorry if this question has been posted before. 

 

I've just recently had breakouts of rashes on my leg and a burning/itching red spot on my back. My dermatologist said the rashes on my leg were eczema. 

 

I am thinking about getting a test done for DH on the leg. I've just started a gluten free diet this week (only a few days). Can that affect testing for DH? 

 

Thanks.

YES! You need to be actively eating gluten for even the dh biopsy. And I don't mean eat a cracker before the biopsy. Too many have gone down that road & been sorry they didn't stay on gluten as they were supposed to. You can't outsmart or cheat by not eating gluten for a while & then eating a little at the last minute. Sorry. Sad but true. If you want a dx then you need to go back to a full gluten diet right now! And stay on it until testing is completed.

And the dh biopsy is NOT taken directly ON a lesion or spot. It is taken from clear skin adjacent to a lesion.
