I'm going for a physical in early july, if it's not gone by then, I will talk to my doctor.
From http://www.celiac.org/index.php:

Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) is skin manifestation of celiac disease characterized by blistering, intensely itchy skin. The rash has a symmetrical distribution and is most frequently found on the face, elbows, knees and buttocks. DH patients can have gastrointestinal damage without perceptible symptoms.

NOTE: One of the Pathologists I worked for at the hospital specialized in skin conditions and told me that the 'rash' might appear under the skin and not be seen, but can be felt. I know of some people who get what appears to be an acne breakout from gluten. So it varies by person.

About Celiac in general from http://www.emedicinehealth.com/celia...article_em.htm:

Celiac sprue, also known as celiac disease, gluten-sensitive enteropathy, and gluten-induced enteropathy, is a chronic disease of the digestive tract that interferes with the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. People with celiac sprue cannot tolerate gluten, a protein commonly found in wheat, rye, barley, and to some degree, oats. When affected individuals ingest foods containing gluten, the lining (mucosa) of the intestine becomes damaged due to the body's immune reaction. Because the lining of the intestine contains essential enzymes for digestion and absorption, its destruction leads to malabsorption, a difficulty in absorption of food and essential nutrients. As result, celiac sprue is often considered a malabsorption disorder.

Persons with celiac sprue experience improvement in the condition when on a strict, gluten-free diet and relapse when dietary gluten is reintroduced. With treatment, celiac sprue is rarely fatal. However, untreated and unrecognized celiac disease may slightly increase the risk of developing intestinal lymphoma, a form of cancer.

Celiac sprue is a genetic disease; the genes for this condition may be transmitted to some family members and not to others. Sometimes the disease is triggered, or becomes apparent for the first time, after surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, viral infection, or severe emotional stress. Celiac sprue is rare in persons with an African American, Caribbean, or Asian background. Females are slightly more affected than males. Although celiac sprue can manifest at any age, the detection of this disease usually peaks at 8-12 months and in the third to fourth decade of life.

The true prevalence of celiac sprue is not known. The increased awareness and the availability of better diagnostic tests have led to the realization that the disease is relatively common. The highest prevalence is in Western Europe and in places where Europeans emigrated, notably North America and Australia. In these regions, celiac sprue affects approximately 1 of every 250-300 individuals. In the United States, the estimated prevalence is 1 case per 3,000 in the population. However, this rate is likely an underestimation; a recent study involving 2,000 healthy blood donors showed an estimated prevalence of 1 case in 300.

NOTE: The last edited-by date on this is: Last Editorial Review: 9/22/2005.

Since then, the figure has changed. Currently it is suspected that the rate of cases is more likely 1 in 22, though the average number of confirmed cases is closer to 1 in 122. Still, pretty high and the number of cases appears to be growing all the time.

I'd ask your doctor to add it to your blood test when you get the next one. It's a simple test to see if you may have it. If you appear to have it, they may want to do a biopsy to determine how bad the damage could be.

The most surprising thing about Celiac is that even dogs can get it, and I assume other animals. I know of dogs who have been diagnosed with it.

Anyone wish to talk about homeopathic remedies for allergies? Someone mentioned the local honey and another mentioned the usage of Royal Jelly. Anyone have some other allergy remedies, they would care to mention?

Thank you for any and all information

there is a non food recipe section, maybe we should start with that place?

Oh please dig them out...I await with a full heart. I don't want the life of pill taking to exceed over a possible pure, simple and natural means of an ending.

Well I'm celiac too, and was celiac and vegan! There isn't a reason that you cannot be animal free and celiac. Its just a few grains you cant eat. But there are so many other grains, or fruits, etc. you can have. Have you had quinoa, sprouted buckwheat, yams, wild rice, etc? I eat most my carbs presently in the form of fruit. Its more you just have to watch for processed foods. Shoot, I barely have soy too. Thats a big allergen! Just hard to eat out. I would get the Food Allergy Survival Guide by, Jo Stepaniak if you are struggling with cooked food ideas or want to do a food allergy elimination test.

Whole Foods, Hillers and Trader Joe's all have huge gluten-free sections that make my life fun and easy. I'm lucky to be in Ann Arbor, where every store has a health-food/organic section and most have at least a couple of GF items. There's even a bunch of restaurants in the area with GF menus. Plus, pretty much all of the restaurants have extensive veggie/vegan menus around here. I couldn't be in a better place to live with any sort of food intolerance/allergy.

It's easy to eat out with celiac. Just go to Panera for every meal like I do.

Yay! I went vegetarian in August 2007 after watching the movie Earthlings on Google videos. I knew deep inside my goal had to be to go vegan to really live in line with my new ethics. My boyfriend and I have been vegan since January 14th, 2008. We are really happy.

Check out the vegan freak podcast and forum when you are ready to really do it. Well, check out the podcast but you can't join the forum until you are ready to commit to your new ethics.

It brought a huge smile to my face to see your excitement and fervor!

Jammn'beck anytime you have questions or need any kind of support with this please feel free to email me

I was hoping to find some vegans on here I'm really happy

What do they have at Panera? I usually go to Baja Fresh if I eat out. I found some really good (but pricey) GF bread. But I wont go all the way back vegan. I have good blood work now, perfect.. My Dr says I'm really healthy!

I have a vegetarian day each week

Breakfast - toast and marmalade

Morning break - fried egg on toast

Lunch - chips and beans

Evening meal - beans, fried egg and chips.

I don't feel that good after a day as a vege so I couldn't do it permanently

Default Famous Veg Quotes

“Oh, my fellow men, do not defile your bodies with sinful foods. We have corn, we have apples bending down the branches with their weight, and grapes swelling on the vines. There are sweet-flavored herbs, and vegetables which can be cooked and softened over the fire, nor are you denied milk or thyme-scented honey. The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass.” -Pythagorus




“Can you really ask what reason Pythagorus had for abstinence from flesh? For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of mind the first man touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, set forth tables of dead, stale bodies, and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds? It is certainly not lions or wolves that we eat out of self-defense; on the contrary, we ignore these and slaughter harmless, tame creatures without stings or teeth to harm us. For the sake of a little flesh we deprive them of sun, of light, of the duration of life to which they are entitled by birth and being.

“If you declare that you are naturally designed for such a diet, then first kill for yourself what you want to eat. Do it, however, only through your own resources, unaided by cleaver or cudgel or any kind of ax.-”The Roman Plutarch, in an essay “On Eating Flesh”.
