Cc'd With Dh

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I'm about a month into the whole gluten-free thing. Actually I think it's a month today! I'm prepared for this to take a good while. But I'm thinking, while my skin is still quite bad and since my gastro symptoms were never very acute, how can I even tell if I'm being cc'ed? For those of you who have been doing this longer, do your gastro symptoms become more obvious, or is it just your skin that will react?

For now my plan is to be as super careful as I can till I can clear my skin, and hopefully it will be more obvious if I'm being cc'ed. Any thoughts? Thanks

Are you watching your iodine intake?

Read the DH threads about iodine and DH.

If you react to iodine, you can be perfectly gluten-free and still have skin flares if you eat high iodine foods like seaweed.

Even low iodine you can still have dh flares until the IgA gets out of your skin. NSAIDS make my dh go gonzo! Stress makes flare ups.

We are eating nothing from a can. No processed foods unless you count frozen veggies & mostly we eat fresh fruits & veggies. We only get stuff that is batch tested, certified gluten free. Most of my flours, nuts, flax seed, chia seed, organic nut butters I order from Nuts.com.

We do NOT eat out. We are doing everything we can to make sure we can not be cc'd. There is no question. I can't tell you what reactions GI or otherwise that either of us get. I did get cc'd back in Jan. from some canned refried beans & I did have some GI stuff from that but it may have been a general fluke as to the GI as I was also eating some stir fry veggies that were partially cooked & have found on several occasions where I get GI reactions if certain veggies are not well cooked --- such as Bok Choy, & sweet red bell peppers so maybe the GI in Jan. was from something like that. I never had much GI symptoms either pre-gluten-free.

I wanted to add to be sure & check the frozen veggies bags to make sure they aren't done in a shared facility. Eatmeatforgood found some that said that. I always check to make sure.
