I have alwas had rough, bumpy, dry skin on my body (not my face)

I usually had pimples all over (lovely, huh.)

anyway, 3 weeks gluten-free and my skin is really changing! it's not dry, I have no active pimples, and the rough texture is *much* less.

I never thought of my skin problems being related to my GI problems....

I really hope this trend continues!

If I can perhaps get my sex drive back someday I've got lots of healthy skin to show off!

Anyone have similar experiences? I'm fascinated!

Yep, really makes me wonder how many that have 'acne' have it because of skin related gluten issues. My kids skin cleared up also.

I can only answer for myself but being gluten free brought that drive back after while for me. Gluten can mess with your hormones so that may be part of the decrease or perhaps even just the ill health. Something that helped me a great deal in that dept and with energy in general was Royal Jelly from bees. It is high in the B vitamins and lots of other good stuff. I noticed a big differnce in that dept after I started taking it but can't be sure it would do the same for you. If you are allergic to bee products this would not be something you would want to try though.

I was amazed too at things that changed that I never would have thought connected. I clipped my nails what seemed like once a month and thought that was normal. After going gluten-free, I was suddenly trimming them every week!

Back when I was actively seeing clients in nutritional consulting, I had a women come to me to lose weight. I had read information about gluten intolerance (though I never related it to myself <_< ) and after going over her diet, decided cutting out wheat might help her. She seemed addicted to it. She came back 2 weeks later with the biggest smile on her face. She had not lost much weight, but her substantial acne on her face was nearly gone!! We were both floored. She said that she didnt even care about the extra weight anymore because her skin was so beautiful. :)

I dont know if she was Celiac. In all my studies, Celiac was just written off as a "rare genetic disease". But I did know about gluten sensitivity. I tried wheat free many times, but now is the first time completely gluten-free. It has really helped me.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
