Re: Have I got undiagnosed Coeliac disease?

1. itchiness - yes. Could be dermatitis herpetiformis or just sensitivity to some chemicals in cheap soaps for instance. Honestly best thing u can do is limit their contact/use and let the natural oils in your skin flourish. FWIW I use Dove soap very sparingly. Works for me.
2. I only had the bloodtest because I had a little DH which is a classic symptom. I also got/get a very distinct pain in my gut when I have gluten (quite different and more localised than a normal stomach ache). On the odd occasion where I've glutened myself I can just tell. I too didn't like the idea of the endoscopy even though that is the gold standard - I didn't have it but now feel I made the right decision. I am certainly a Coeliac!
