Thanks, kareng.

I have been looking around and like anything else find yeas and nays. Guess the proof is in the pudding so to speak. If I feel better off of gluten and my rash goes away that is the ultimate lab test, isn't it?

IMHO yes it is.

You could also see a derm and get a biopsy done to confirm DH. Just make sure the derm knows that you suspect DH and make sure they do the biopsy properly. It needs to be done on the skin next to the rash.
