Are these conditions more pronounced in Coeliacs?

I don't know the answer to that. My son broke out in eczema and cleared up after going gluten/soy free. He breaks out with eczema for his food intolerances it seems.

I have eczema that hasn't totally cleared going gluten free, but it generally seems a little better. I always have flare ups in the fall/winter so for me I think it must be related to something other than food (at least in part).

i, too, am a lifelong eczema sufferer, and although it has improved since i've gone gluten free, i still break out due to other allergies (like tree pollen season) and alot of handwashing without lotioning afterwards. i don't know about psoriasis, but i believe that eczema breakouts are mainly related to some sort of allergic reaction whether to food or other noxious materials. oh, and i use gold bond ultimate healing lotion to treat my patches. it's a Godsend.

According to my doctors, yes, it is more pronounced in Celiacs. I have seborrhic dermatitis (fancy words for seborrhea) . . . it's between eczema and psoriasis . . . . so I guess I'm on the side of the fence that's proving them right!

My hubby had psoriasis before going gluten-free...it completely disappeared after going gluten-free.

I've had eczema all my life and although I'm not a coeliac I went gluten-free as hubby + 1 son are coeliacs.My eczema greatly improved when I went gluten-free.

Hmmmm,- not sure I understand why though!! :blink:

I have psoriasis and did have psoriatic arthritis. They both went away when I eliminated wheat/gluten, dairy, eggs and soy. The psoriasis has come back though, even though I am gluten-free. I don't eat soy at all and eat very limited amounts of eggs and dairy (a little butter, a little goat cheese). No problems with the psoriatic arthritis though. I think other food intolerances can contribute to psoriasis. My psoriasis is MUCH better though than it was before.

I have just a few very mild spots of ezcema on my face and also some what I think is psoriasis on my forehead. Although they've been worse in the past, there hasn't been much change since going allergen-free. In fact, a new tiny spot of ezcema popped up just a few weeks ago. But maybe it will take several more months for improvement - I can only hope.

;) I've always wondered if the Psoriais in celiacs is often just misdiagnosed DH that can accompany celiac disease. Don't they look and act a lot alike?

My hubby was diagnosed with Psoriais many years before being diagnosed with Celiac (although he did have all the celiac symptoms) and nothing seemed to help. But strangely, after going gluten free, it diminished and eventually disappeared completely. He had it very bad on his knees, elbows, knuckles and bottom. With such improvement after being diagnosed with Celiac and going gluten free, we just always assumed it probably had been DH all along.

[My psoriasis and excema were really bad before going gluten and dairy free and cleared completey after a couple of years. Is started putting dairy back in in small amounts like cream in coffee the occasional DQ icecream and that is about it and it came back. Take it out and a fews days later it is gone. So for sure it is Gluten but I have to eliminate 100% of the dairy as well and preservatives.

This is my first post EVER so please bear with me. I was diagnosed with psoriasis some 30 years ago, although I never believed I actually had it! Its a Looong story. I actually suffer from DH but do not seem to have an issue with any GI matters; however I have a brother who has serious GI issues, and a daughter who suffered from severe ocular migraines in her early teens until all gluten was removed from her diet. My DH is a scalp and face issue, yet my father suffered DH (which I now retrospectively realise) on his feet and ankles. Anyway, as interesting as this all may or may not be my reason for posting this is that I was interested to discover that current research suggests that celiac problems are related to chromosome 6. I found this very interesting as I also am dyslexic and current research on dyslexia also shows that this condition is also related to chromosome 6. For relief of HD breakouts I use a 50/50 mix of organic Apple Cider Vinegar and isopropyl alchohol. Its bliss.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
