  1. Hi there 👋 every time I’ve been accidentally glutened (always through cross contamination I never eat anything with gluten in it) I get DH on my elbows and sides and feet and fingers. Always very mildly now, but it’s always the key to knowing when I’ve accidentally ingested some gluten. I was just wondering how long after gluten it usually taks your DH to appear?? I find it hard to work out what meal it was that I had cross contamination (so I can try and work out how it happened and what to avoid next time.) I have a feeling if maybe only an hour after ingesting gluten for me but is that too early? Could it be the meal the night before? Thanks in advance 😊
  2. Hi there So I had my yearly blood tests done and got the results today. A year ago I was diagnosed via gastroscope (mt GP sent me straight to have teh scope I didnt even have bloods done thats how sure she was I had it) - the dr came out and basically told me straight away I had celiac disease as could see total villous atrophy. So anyway one year later and even though my iron, liver, B12, zinc etc levels are looking ok now, my Ttg iga levels were really really elevated. Dr said I must be getting some cross contamination form somewhere. I know I was glutened the week I had teh blood test - no idea what from but I wasn't well - I feel fine this week. If i was to have a test now would my levels be looking in better shape? Or as they so high because I had so much damage initially? Can being glutened make these levels not an accurate representation of healing? Hope this all makes sense. I'm just disheartened because I've been so stringent about gluten all year and take no chances. Although I guess I don't know what my original gluten antibodies were so maybe even this level is better than before....:(
  3. Hi! I’m not even sure if this is the right place to ask this...but I’ve been feeling really unwell lately - like I’ve got the flu really and very tired, stomach not quite right and like I’ve a head cold - and I’ve just found out that next to where is work is the huge factory where they manufacture all the MacDonalds hamburger buns. You can smell them as soon as you leave the office. I don’t know if there’s flour in the air? I can’t tell. But it’s an overwhelming smell which makes me think that particles could be everywhere. Could this possibly be making me unwell?
