Are these conditions more pronounced in Coeliacs?

I don't know the answer to that. My son broke out in eczema and cleared up after going gluten/soy free. He breaks out with eczema for his food intolerances it seems.

I have eczema that hasn't totally cleared going gluten free, but it generally seems a little better. I always have flare ups in the fall/winter so for me I think it must be related to something other than food (at least in part).

i, too, am a lifelong eczema sufferer, and although it has improved since i've gone gluten free, i still break out due to other allergies (like tree pollen season) and alot of handwashing without lotioning afterwards. i don't know about psoriasis, but i believe that eczema breakouts are mainly related to some sort of allergic reaction whether to food or other noxious materials. oh, and i use gold bond ultimate healing lotion to treat my patches. it's a Godsend.

According to my doctors, yes, it is more pronounced in Celiacs. I have seborrhic dermatitis (fancy words for seborrhea) . . . it's between eczema and psoriasis . . . . so I guess I'm on the side of the fence that's proving them right!

My hubby had psoriasis before going gluten-free...it completely disappeared after going gluten-free.

I've had eczema all my life and although I'm not a coeliac I went gluten-free as hubby + 1 son are coeliacs.My eczema greatly improved when I went gluten-free.

Hmmmm,- not sure I understand why though!! :blink:

I have psoriasis and did have psoriatic arthritis. They both went away when I eliminated wheat/gluten, dairy, eggs and soy. The psoriasis has come back though, even though I am gluten-free. I don't eat soy at all and eat very limited amounts of eggs and dairy (a little butter, a little goat cheese). No problems with the psoriatic arthritis though. I think other food intolerances can contribute to psoriasis. My psoriasis is MUCH better though than it was before.

I have just a few very mild spots of ezcema on my face and also some what I think is psoriasis on my forehead. Although they've been worse in the past, there hasn't been much change since going allergen-free. In fact, a new tiny spot of ezcema popped up just a few weeks ago. But maybe it will take several more months for improvement - I can only hope.

;) I've always wondered if the Psoriais in celiacs is often just misdiagnosed DH that can accompany celiac disease. Don't they look and act a lot alike?

My hubby was diagnosed with Psoriais many years before being diagnosed with Celiac (although he did have all the celiac symptoms) and nothing seemed to help. But strangely, after going gluten free, it diminished and eventually disappeared completely. He had it very bad on his knees, elbows, knuckles and bottom. With such improvement after being diagnosed with Celiac and going gluten free, we just always assumed it probably had been DH all along.

[My psoriasis and excema were really bad before going gluten and dairy free and cleared completey after a couple of years. Is started putting dairy back in in small amounts like cream in coffee the occasional DQ icecream and that is about it and it came back. Take it out and a fews days later it is gone. So for sure it is Gluten but I have to eliminate 100% of the dairy as well and preservatives.

This is my first post EVER so please bear with me. I was diagnosed with psoriasis some 30 years ago, although I never believed I actually had it! Its a Looong story. I actually suffer from DH but do not seem to have an issue with any GI matters; however I have a brother who has serious GI issues, and a daughter who suffered from severe ocular migraines in her early teens until all gluten was removed from her diet. My DH is a scalp and face issue, yet my father suffered DH (which I now retrospectively realise) on his feet and ankles. Anyway, as interesting as this all may or may not be my reason for posting this is that I was interested to discover that current research suggests that celiac problems are related to chromosome 6. I found this very interesting as I also am dyslexic and current research on dyslexia also shows that this condition is also related to chromosome 6. For relief of HD breakouts I use a 50/50 mix of organic Apple Cider Vinegar and isopropyl alchohol. Its bliss.

    • Hi everyone! New to the forum. I was diagnosed in 2012, told to never eat gluten again, and never had a follow-up or anyone really care about the diagnosis. My Endo checked my vitamin D levels (the low level and genetic history lead to my diagnosis) bi-annually which have remained now in the normal range. This level is what I was always told determined if absorption was happening or not. I have never heard of the things everyone on here gets tested for  I feel so cheated out of my health in a way. anyways. I have severe, severe brain fog. I used to be so smart, sharp, witty, focused. I even have some personality changes and severe anxiety. I was put on Xanax after I was diagnosed but my tolerance to that medication is outrageous. I have to take three times the prescribed dose (my doctor knows this) in order to get any relief/clarity. I have a weight problem even though I work out four days a week (with a trainer), probably due to my flip floppy thyroid levels. Anyways, that’s my story! I have appointments with a new PCP, Endo, and GI doc in March! Just wanted to share with you all because you’re so kind and helpful. If anyone has any advice for this brain fog, I would be so appreciative.  I should also mention that I was extremely smart and sharp before stopping gluten, ironic? Like the lack of gluten dumbed me down 🙈 I never ever cheat. I know restaurants aren’t 100%, but I rarely chance that. There may be SOME cross contamination but I never feel repercussions.  Thanks for reading ☺️

    • I have an ipad and iphone - so not sure if these exact games are available to you. I like a word game called word crossy.  Also "1010" games are good to try.  Picross style games can be fun
    • Same stuff, different brand.  Ingredients Mung Bean Starch. Cellophane. I don't know why I thought glass.

Saifun noodles are known as: Mung Bean Threads, Cellophane Noodles, Bean Threads, Silver Noodles, Jelly Noodles, Fen Szu, Sohoon or Tanghoon
    • If your concerned on wheat/gluten, see about getting a actual celiac blood test done, you have to be eating wheat for the test to be accurate. After that you will need the follow up endoscope and biopsy. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
