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

I may be way off base, but I thought I'd ask here anyway. I have been gluten-free now for a month. My energy has returned, by digestion has calmed down, and I can sleep again. One of the things I have noticed is a type of acne-like breakouts on both my face and scalp. I also have a problem with food collecting in the deep pockets of my tonsils, which has really been worse since I went gluten-free. I am wondering if any of this is related. Is this some sort of detox from the yrs of gluten I had ingested? Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

This forum has given me so many answers and calmed so many fears, thanks to you all.

I've read that acne can get worse when you detox. It never made sense to me though. Seems like it's more likely that it just takes time to heal and your body is still trying to get rid of the toxins.

But how do you know you have food collecting in your tonsils? What are your symptoms exactly?

I have a similar type of acne that runs along the side of my face at my hairline and into my scalp. It looks a bit like acne but lasts for months. It started to get better after about of month of going gluten-free. I had never had it until about a year ago when my symptoms really started. Now that I did a challenge it is back

I think that it will eventually go away.

As gross as it is, I get pieces of putrified food stuck along the edges of the back of my throat. They break loose and cause the most awful taste and odor. My dr told me to gargle with peroxide, which is horrible in itself. I have always had this, but it is much more frequent since I went gluten-free. or maybe Im just paying more attention to everything now.

What you have are called "tonsil stones". You can do a search on them to get more information, but from what I can tell, some people just produce them and there's not a whole lot that can be done. I hope that the change in diet isn't the cause, because I get them too.

    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
    Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
