Has anyone had rosacea and found that it got better on the gluten free diet? My rosacea is so bad that you can see blood vessels in my face and It makes me look so red. By the way, I don't drink alcohol, some people think that you get a red face from alcohol. I hope someone can tell me if their rosacea got better after being on the diet.

Thank you

Mine did improve a bit, but I was still getting it quite a lot until I cut out some other foods I was intolerant to, and limited sugar. I find that when I eat nice a safe my skin is very settled, but if I go overboard with sugar I can really flare up. I think it has a lot to do with inflammation for me.

Is your rosacea pretty constant, or does it flare up/get worse at times?

My rosacea stays red at all times but will get even redder and worse when I get upset. and when I work out my whole head gets red. I end up looking like a tomato.

Fair enough. Mine often got worse after some foods, especially MSG, which gave me some clues that it was food related. If you do find any changes with foods, make a note of them.

If it's of interest, I used the topical antibiotic cream for a while but found it didn't help much. My doctor tried me on a very low dose tetracycline antibiotic to treat another skin condition (folliculitis on the scalp, neck and back), and it seemed to help the rosacea as well. The dose was below that which kills bacteria so it wont upset your gut, but these low dose antibiotics are supposed to help with inflamed skin.

I may try to see if my doc will give me the tetracycline. I have heard of that before.

Mine calmed down once I went gluten-free and regulated my hormones.

    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt
