  1. She has been diagnosed through blood test. But the DH that she had before looked nothing like it. That's why I'm confused. Our household is strictly gluten-free so I'm just confused what caused her to flare.
  2. This is on my 8 year old daughter. She gets DH on her elbows and knees but it's much more individual bubbles than something like this. This is in her groin area, and it burns/stings very badly, not itchy whatsoever. Limiting dairy is helping (iodine). It started after I gave her a horizon organic...
  3. Remove all sources of iodine from your diet. Iodine will keep you flared. You can reintroduce small amounts once you are clear.
  4. How long did it take for stomach pain to stop? What was your experience?
  5. Background: Myself and my 3 daughters were gluten free from October 2017 to Thanksgiving 2019. We have never been diagnosed as Celiac although it runs strongly on my dad's side. A lot of our issues were solved but other ones cropped up. I noticed my 8 year old developed a bumpy itchy rash...
  6. Did anyone have swollen mesenteric lymph nodes, or any swollen lymph nodes in the gut, at or before diagnosis? TIA!
  7. Will a celiac blood test show up negative if you have active/new DH lesions and the last time you had gluten was less than a week ago? How long does the body produce celiac antibodies after eliminating gluten?
  8. IUGR is relatively common in Celiac pregnant women, although my doctor has been unconcerned about it. I'm an informed patient however. After that appointment I stopped eating ALL grains, with the exception of simple kneads bread, which is a fermented sourdough but has no oats, rice, corn or...
  9. Does anyone have experience with Celiac during pregnancy? This is my first pregnancy since being diagnosed in January 2017. I went for a growth scan at 28 weeks (10 days ago) and it looks like she has asymmetrical IUGR. This is my 4th baby. I have never had any issues like this. Her abdomen...
  10. Posterboy, Stop spamming everyone's posts with "I think you have pernicious anemia". You have also messaged me and probably everyone else saying they have that. Neuropathy caused by gluten exposure (or similar proteins i.e. oats or brown rice) is a real thing. It doesn't mean I don't process...
  11. I would be careful of calling anyone with this disease lucky. We all have our problems. All of my children have different intolerances caused by Celiac. I can't have eggs or red meat. I have one with an anaphylactic allergy to almonds and cashews, one with a horrible soy allergy and salicylate intolerance...
  12. I get horrible neuropathy down my legs into my feet, as well as low back pain and pelvic pain. I get such similar glutening symptoms from brown rice cakes/pasta/flour and oats that I don't touch oats (even certified) and I usually don't touch brown rice either. (It is their proteins not cross contamination...
  13. Read this: https://scdlifestyle.com/2012/04/the-toxic-truth-about-gluten-free-food-and-celiac-disease/
  14. I react to Swiss MIss. It has whey in it I believe, and also corn, but this is not a gluten reaction, even though it can seem that way. Has she been tested for the top 8 allergens since going gluten free? She likely has other intolerances. Cocoa also gives me migraines.
