  1. Ya I know everyone's body is different and can have different reactions. I'm just going to believe that it was the gluten that irritated my skin because I have no allergies to anything else. I'm still new and learning about this, do you know if there is such a thing as a contact allergy to gluten?
  2. I guess it depends which "experts" opinion you read. The following article says that is IS a problem: http://www.weareglutenfree.com/gluten-free-shampoo-and-conditioner/
  3. Good idea. I'm new to the sight....what is DH?
  4. Hi, Can anyone tell me what the "scientific" name is for gluten in shampoos and conditioners? I see that many have posted that Tressemme has gluten. I have been using one of their conditioners for months without any problems but I started using the Keratin smooth shampoo 2 weeks ago and my scalp and back have been itching like crazy. As soon as I stopped using the shampoo it stopped. I don't see anything on the bottle that says gluten or wheat protein. Thanks!

    Oh I didn't realize it could be different... Here is exactly what mine says: Test Result - Flag Units Reference Interval Celiac Disease Panel Endomysial Antibody (IgA) - Positive - Abnormal t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA - 10 - High Units - Reference Interval U/mL 0-3 Negative 0-3 Weak Positive 4-10 Positive >10 Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum - 74 - Low t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgC - <2 Units - Reference Interval mg/dl 91-414 U/mL 0-5 Negative 0-5 Weak Positive 6-9 Positive >9

    My pcp didn't tell me anything except that I tested positive for the antibodies. I'll have to call them. I've had stomach problems for years, was diagnosed with ibs and have been lactose intolerant since birth. The ibs meds never worked so i stopped taking them. My mom was diagnosed with celiac 3 years ago so when I had my physical this year i asked my doc to check for celiac when he did my blood work just to see. And here I am now
  9. Hi, I am new here. A month ago my blood test came back positive for gluten anti-bodies. I have an endoscopy next week, but am wondering if anyone knows what percentage of people who have the endoscopy actually test positive for celiac?? I really want to start going gluten free, to see if I feel better but I know I can't until after the endo. I'm also having doubts about the endoscopy and will be disappointed for putting myself through that if I end up not having celiac. Any thoughts or statistics? Thanks!
