    • Welcome!   Did you get skin biopsies?  Some celiacs are seronegative.  They might not even have intestinal damage.  Instead most of  the antibodies (and damage)  are in the skin.  I do not have DH, but suggest you scroll though the DK section and get tips.  Specifically on how to coach a derm properly on how to biopsy for DH (or find a celiac-savvy derm).   It is NOT the same for other rashes from what I have read.  I do not think a person with a gluten sensitivity can have DH because DH is celiac disease.  It just presents differently.   https://www.allergicliving.com/2017/07/11/celiac-thats-skin-deep-the-mysterious-rash-sparked-by-gluten/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ I hope you find relief!

    • Thanks - this was my question, also very confused by conflicting advice. Think I may reschedule blood test, at present in 10 days, as although not gluten free, have eaten very little; two casserole mixes in 4 weeks, Trying to lose weight. Will have an endoscopy for Barretts oesophagus in April so makes sense to get the timing right. Think its unlikely to be positive but in a way hope it is! Ill for about a year now and the only bad blood result is folic acid, very deficient in spite of a very healthy diet, duodenum was inflamed at last endoscopy 3 years ago. I see two doctors as both are part time. First blood test was in Feb , second in Nov by which folate level had improved but still low. Both doctors have now mentioned celiac disease. Take Levothyroxine 150 mcg and TSH normal. Symptoms are more like anemia but no megoblastic anemia or iron deficient showed up. ECG normal Doc is also doing a thyroid panel, hopefully with T3 but haven't been thyroid tired; definitely more like anemia Was fine on Levothyroxine for 4 years. Apologies for rambling!
