Some people develop a type of skin rash known as dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). Red, raised patches, and blistering may affect the elbows, knees, shoulders, buttocks, and face.
Again, with this model, even if the bacteria, virus, or gluten that damaged the tissue is removed, the autoimmunity never turns off. So, the body continues to produce antibodies and attack the exposed tissue even though the initial trigger that damaged it is gone.
My 9 yr old daughter was just diagnosed with celiac along with being allergic to peanuts and eggs. This diet has me so confused. I feel like her choices in life have been taken from her. How do you manage with your child and is there any sibling involved? I have two other childeren who seem ok with gluten and I was told they should not be on same diet just in case they need to be tested for it.
Thank you for posting this. I am a 76 year old college student who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a year and a half ago after three tests confirmed it. I am struggling with eating gluten free on a college student 8767 s tight budgets. I am currently eating completely gluten free with parental financial support for the special (and extremely costly) foods. However, I am still very ill and feel worse than I did while eating gluten. I cannot wait for the rest of the posts after reading the previous ones. Hoping I can end this pain and feeling so sick all of the time.

So even though gluten free is 'trendy' I believe, unlike you, that it will help those with Celiac disease. More awareness will lead to more appropriate early screening and testing. I don't see how those claiming they are gluten-sensitive and going gluten free will create a backlash, except for wheat growers.

Just because the letters glut are in a word, doesn 8767 t indicate gluten. Your gluteus maximus does NOT have gluten in it. People, go to reputable celiac websites to research things. Stop listening to bloggers and postings and, above all, stop guessing!!!! Get your heads out of your gluteus maximus!!!!!
I just realized the Lemon & Aloe Ecover dish detergent has wheat proteins in it. Other Ecover dish soaps dont contain it so it came as a big surprise and disappointment. I think the should be required to list items that come in contact with your food as gluten free on the front label where you can see it.
The REALLY scary part of all this is the number of folks that are imposing crazy and restrictive diets on their children based on internet lore and television fear mongering campaigns. Did your kid get the runs? Must be lactose intolerant! Did little Timmy get a belly-ache after eating 8 happy meals? Must be Celiac's disease! Did he sniffle after a PBJ? Must be a peanut allergy!
