  1. Also, I did get dh later. It disappeared after I gave up dairy, which apparently is quite molecularly similar to gluten.
  2. I never got the test because I didn't want to deliberately eat gluten....Until...on a mad whim I had decided to eat a bun after a year off gluten, and got so sick--and because a week after eating it I was still experiencing symptoms from the one bun, decided I would go get the test. It was a tTg test and even though it was one full week after I had one hot dog bun, the test showed my gluten antibodies at 99. The normal range being under 10. So I would say that you don't have to be continually eating gluten, but maybe everyone is different. Maybe my body went into alarm mode after a year off gluten and eating a huge bun.
  3. Is this DH? All labs negative

    I went off gluten, and the dh didn't go away but got gradually worse. Then I went off dairy completely and the dh cleared right up. It hasn't come back, and I've heard that dairy is not much different from gluten on the molecular level, so the immune system is just being overly protective I guess. After a year I re-introduced dairy gradually and the dh didn't come back, but other symptoms did. Go figure. So now I'm off dairy again. Aargh.
  4. I am in china and I bought Chinese coffee mate. Do you think it is ok? It says: glucose syrup, hydrogenated vegetable oil, food additives (stabilizer, emulsifier, anti caking agent), casein, ( contain milk protein), flavouring. Nestle makes it What do you think? Maybe I will ask someone to mail me some Canadian stuff....desperate for coffee.
