  1. Hi! i live in Eastern Europe where Celiac is considered a rare disease. ever since diagnosed with Celiac, total villious atrophy, 1 year ago, i got all necessary information on diet and complications only from internet. i also have type 1 diabetes ever since a child with only very mild diabetes complications. now i have 2 more problems no local doctor can solve: shortly before being diagnosed with Celiac one morning i woke up with stiff finger joints. it is getting worse every day. i can hardly use more than 3 fingers. i was told it is because of diabetes but i think it's got something to do with Celiac too. i try very hard to keep a very strict gluten free diet. actually this is my problem number 2: inspite of a very strict gluten free diet i get Dermatitis Herpetiformis only on the tips of two of my fingers. my question is: can DH appeare also without eating gluten? this is developing into a real trauma to me because i don't know where gluten could be hidden in my food no matter how hard i try to keep "clean". thanks for any clue, V.V.
