Does Dh Ever Go Away?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

No, gluten is the culprit. Stress is an exacibator. I know the two are almost impossible to seperate (especially in the beginning)...but it's true.

I know it's hard to have faith (so to speak) that the dh will eventually clear, but if it's dh and you follow a gluten-free diet (modified to avoid anything else you're intolerant to) it will eventually go away. And yes, unfortunately, some people have a very long and painful road with it, and it can take years for it to clear for some.

Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.

Hashimoto's DX 2005.

Gluten-Free since 6/2011.

DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.

Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

I fully agree. My body has been knackered this year. Mentally its been really stressful too - the exacibator as you say. I think there have been a knock on effect (or butterfly effect maybe? ^_^ ) on my state of mind.

 

Since hearing the results of my endoscopy and biopsy, which I've been waiting for for so long, a weight has lifted and my mood is improving. Hopefully, things will fall into place the longer I am off gluten.

 

Thanks for the reassurance guys !

I had a rash on my face since approximately 4 years ago and prior to going gluten free. A butterfly effect red rash which didn't itch until maybe 2 years with the rash when it suddenly started to get redder and brighter and drier it flaked and itched. It seemed to get really bad after a pie and peas and a pint of lager on my lunch break :)

 

I've now been gluten free for nearly 8 months and the rash is still there but is much, much lighter in shade. Its a barely noticable rosey cheek type of colour. It flares up in heat or with excercise, but never to the extent when I was consuming gluten.

 

I'm hoping from reading all of the above posts, that it will eventually disappear.

Butterfly shaped rash sound to me like a LUPUS. How are you doing?

Since going gluten free, my rashes receded into a dot or two.  Since taking lukewarm showers as opposed to nice hot ones, I no longer itch.  Recently, to head off future itches, I apply coconut oil from the health food store and that seems to work.
