If you are 100% gluten free, then yes, DH goes away. But eventually. For a while, you may also need to eliminate sources of iodine from the diet. But it can take months for everything to clear up. (The DH is caused by IgG deposits under the skin, which require iodine to form. It takes a while for those deposits to be cleaned out.)

Lots of things have iodine but a couple of the bigger ones are iodized table salt and shellfish. You cat'y completely eliminate iodine nor would you want to. You need it to live.

Also, if you've only been completely gluten-free for a week then it will take time for your body to start repairing itself. I've also only been on the diet for 6 days. I am feeling a bit better but am told it takes 2weeks to 2months for your body to be back to "normal". Good luck :)

Yup, you can't eliminate iodine (and as richard said, you don't want to), but you can - until the DH heals, not consume extra iodine - so eliminated iodized sald, shellfish, regular fish, seaweed, dairy, and eggs.

Once you no longer are having DH outbreaks (and are gluten free, consistently, the whole time), then you would allow more of those foods back in. But it isn't an intolerance thing - it's not a "avoid wholesale". It's just a reduction, so you're not getting *a lot* of it. (Most of us, in the US, get more than enough iodine, if you're eating dairy, meats, and sea-originated items.)

My DH took about 6-8 weeks to completely heal. I didn't know anything about iodine at the time so didn't reduce it. Maybe mine would have cleared up sooner if I had.

I have been gluten free for going on 2 years (only occasional accidents) and my DH still is really bothering me. I haven't yet eliminated dairy and other grains such as corn. Should I? I don't understand it, because within 6 months of first going gluten free my skin got crystal clear, but then the DH began returning. I have no idea what is triggering me and I'm really confused and sad. :( I can't get testing to see what is bothering me, no job and no health insurance. :(
