Does anyone have a dermatologic reaction when they are glutened?
Yes, a lot of people have Dermatitis herpetiformis or other skin reactions. Anyone else on here have this? (I don’t…)
Pretty common! DH - woot woot!
This Easter Sunday I will not be taking the communion wafer. Yes, not even the low-gluten host. It’s not a decision I make lightly.
According to the Catholic church, the wafer must contain some wheat to be valid (“bread of life”) and a low-gluten host is acceptable for celebrating the Eucharist because it has some wheat. A non-gluten wafer is not valid. For more information, go to the Catholic…
I find it puzzling that someone DIAGNOSED with celiac would continue to take a low-gluten host. Why would you do that? No gluten is acceptable for a celiac (unless monitored by a doctor for a gluten challenge). IMHO having a LITTLE bit of gluten regularly for a celiac is worse than an alcoholic having a LITTLE bit of alcohol. We suffer permanent damage to our insides.
I’ve been having issues for a long time now with this unexplained weakness/fatigue I feel almost every day. Last year I got blood tests done to see if i was anemic (one of the symptoms of celiacs) and they didn’t find anything out of the ordinary, but I’ve never explored other possibilities that could be causing it.
Should I try going 2 weeks or something without gluten and see how I feel? Or should I just go to the doctor and be like hey, I think I have celiacs, test me please!?
Forget what other people are saying - KEEP EATING WHEAT AND GO TO THE DOCTOR AND DEMAND TO GET TESTED! When you quit eating gluten you can’t go back and get tested.
