  1. Its been a little over 2 weeks since I posted. I've lowered my iodine intake (I stopped the fish oil and been generally conscientious), and temporarily halted eating my gluten-free oatmeal and the gluten-free Bob's Red Mill products I have. While it is too early to make any declarations, I'm happy...
  2. It now seems apparent that iodine is closely connected to my DH outbreaks. But how much iodine is considered too much? The recommended daily intake of iodine for adults is 150 mcg. And deficiencies in iodine are linked to negative health outcomes, which I'd like to avoid. My daily multivitamin...
  3. I see my multivitamin contains 60 mcg of iodine per capsule. I was taking one a day. Guess I won't be taking that anymore. Thanks for all the info.
  4. Do you have any resources you recommend I read re: iodine levels in fish oil? I've emailed the manufacturer of the fish oil I use asking for info about iodine in their products but could use all the useful info I can get. Re: potatoes -- is the iodine concentrated in the skins?
  5. Got it. I'll give it a try, starting today. (As in, cutting out the gluten-free oats and Bob's Red Mill products.) knitty kitty suggested I observe and lower my iodine intake. Do you have any insight into the relationship between iodine and DH? My understanding is that iodine aggravates already...
  6. Thanks for sharing. A question -- is iodine only an issue if gluten is already present and triggers a response? I'll look into lowering the amount of iodine that I consume. At present I'm consuming a lot of potatoes -- between celiac and IBS I have trouble finding foods that I can safely consume...
  7. Hi, I was wondering if there are some resources somebody new to the supersensitive lifestyle should read to get acquainted. I've been gluten free for a number of years now, but I still have recurring DH. I came to the realization after trying to ID the source of gluten contamination that I must be...
  8. I may give eliminating the oats for a stretch a try. How long would I need to stop eating them to detect changes? (I only started eating these in the past year, and had DH prior, but given the problem I will try something like this. Also, Only Oats are certified gluten free by GFCO, for what that...
  9. Hi folks, I can’t seem to shake DH. I was diagnosed a few years ago, but first noticed it approximately a decade ago. Since diagnosis I’ve doubled-down on the gluten free lifestyle. I prepare my own food and rarely buy anything processed, and when I do I do my background research to make sur...
