  1. My daughter has dermatitis herpetiformis (the rash for celiac). Three days after my daughter went gluten free she got huge new rash patches behind both armpits where they meet her back -- one of the same places her dad's DH had showed up decades earlier. We had never seen the rash there before. ...
  2. I know this is an old dead thread, but it really got to me, because I hadn't seen it before, and it makes me think of my oldest daughter, in a way that makes me feel really really sad. Louis, I am glad you have figured out that gluten was giving you neurological symptoms. I hope you are...
  3. Hi Brass, As you suspect thyroid disease, other autoimmune, GI issues including constipation, brain fog, fatigue, joint pain, the vitamin deficiences and more can all be closely associated with undiagnosed celiac disease. I think you posted here to confirm your 'gut feeling' that your health...
  4. For many years endoscopy+biopsy was considered the 'gold standard' of celiac diagnosis. That perception has been changing in recent years as multiple studies have shown higher disagreement rates for endoscopic biopsy results than expected between GIs, as more research into early stages of celiac...
  5. Hey, I understand your frustration with how this disease is diagnosed, especially for kids, and I'm sure just about everybody on the board has had experiences of frustration with the diet and the lack of clarity surrounding so many of the associated symptoms. Even the best experts describe this...
  6. She actually has gone to the pediatrician (maybe three times? I don't know...) At first, thought was that it was from a virus going around. Then when it still seemed persistent they thought it was because she had been milk allergic as a toddler, but they had reintroduced and it had been fine for...
  7. Hey, It sucks you have been sick so long. I was thinking food poisoning too when I saw your first post. (One year at my school PTO volunteers brought in dinner to teachers with a fruit salad bowl and literally every teacher who ate it was sick that night - one was hospitalized! I have been super...
  8. Hi- So asking for friend. Daughter is seven - family history autoimmune (mom is hashimoto's + adopted gfd almost three years ago and never looked back, even though she herself was never formally tested). Daughter has been having chronic stomach pain + nausea for several months She...
  9. So sorry you aren't feeling well. Ravenwoodglass gave a really great list of things to check. I just thought I'd add, in case it is at all reassuring, that depending on the person, nerve damage and skin symptoms can take longer than a year to heal; if the rashes are DH, it can take up to...
  10. I am seeking more info from seronegative celiacs (celiacs where the blood tests did not show it) but later biopsy confirmed & from NCGS diagnosed whose symptoms were allieviated on the gfd What blood tests for celiac disease did you do? / Were your numbers totally low / normal? Were...
  11. This made me laugh. Just picturing bleeding bowls, leeches, and people in funny hats insisting that transferring the fecal matter is a great idea.... On the other hand I once heard a fascinating podcast about a medieval monk's recipe/instruction set that when properly followed today creates...
  12. RMJ, sorry if my reaction was over-the-top.... like your cat dander reaction? I just want to make sure this mom can be thorough in follow up if she needs to be, because I really do think, based on lots of people in my family, that not knowing is bad news. Of course there are false positives and it...
  13. Well....my three year old is totally fascinated by poop, too, and also finds it totally funny. She likes to rate whether or not her poop is 'de-cust-ing.' (disgusting) Oddly, this is a label only some poop gets.... I guess poop that cures celiac disease would be not de-cust-ing? I remember...
  14. My daughter has mildly clubbed toenails (can't tell about finger nails because she bites them). I am very happy your nails 'unclubbed.' My daughter has only been on the GFD for a little over a week..... I hope her nails start to grow normally too.... that would be great! Clubbed nails are linked...
  15. Best wishes to your family & especially your daughter! I think my daughter's gene test results took about five days. The gene tests generally look for HLA DQ2&DQ8 haplotypes, because these are the best understood genetic markers associated with the disease -- and some of them are starting...
