    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Strange diagonal creases on forearm

I was diagnosed with celiac disease 4 months ago.  I noticed these strange lines on my arm, I saw a dermatologist who said it could be lichens sclerosis.  I was wondering if anybody has these lines as and if you know what they are?  The skin is almost like crepe paper and a bit shiny.

I think it's related to a deficiency of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's).  Celiacs often have trouble absorbing essential nutrients, especially fat based nutrients like EFA's, vitamins A, D, E and K.  

You might try adding healthy fats to your diet like cod liver oil, flaxseed oil, olive oil, or hemp oil (not CBD oil although that has benefits, too).  

Hope this helps.
