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

I have celiac, but I was just wondering whether I could have DH as well, or are both diseases exclusive, and you can only have one without the other?

I have a few spots, always have had spots on and off, but they are not a problem as compared to celiac.

I was just wondering whether a person can have both diseases?

I don't have DH, so I can't answer any specific questions about that, but I do know that if you have a diagnosis of DH, then you also have Celiac Disease. But not all Celiacs have DH.

Yes, Patti is right. If you have DH, you have celiac disease, as it is caused ONLY by celiac disease. But not everybody with celiac disease has DH. If you have DH and have a positive skin biopsy, that automatically gives you a firm diagnosis of celiac disease, as it cannot be caused by anything else. The only valid treatment for DH is the gluten-free diet (some meds will help it somewhat while you wait for it to clear up, though)
