Three months ago, I decided to go completely gluten-free, with my entire (awesomely supportive) family. I have been changing my diet considerably in the last few weeks, to get my weight down where it should be. Not only did my scalp psoriasis all but disappear, but the chronic anemia I have had for 8 plus years went away too. With the cold dry air my skin should now be worsening for the winter season. Ever since I went gluten free my stomach,legs,arms, and back went completely clear. I had been dealing with psoriasis for months and nothing helped. Eliminating wheat helped Kelly erase effects on her skin evidenced by acne, but it also exerts dramatic effects on gastrointestinal health even if she does not perceive it! Losing the gliadin protein, for instance, means her bowels are going to regain normal bowel flora, resume normal bowel permeability and thereby reduce body-wide inflammation. I’m fifty and have had really bad acne all my life, but for the last year my skin has been as clear as can be. Wheat free and alcohol free diet completely cleared my nail and scalp psoriasis I had for 30 years. I went wheat and grain free for 6 weeks not that long ago, as I too suffer from hormonal acne.
I did not go on the diet to cure my Psoriasis but after about a month of being on the diet I realised that my Psoriasis had completely cleared up. Over the summer it clears up and then in the winter it returns with a vengence. I have a herbal combo that really helps too. The tough bit is realizing how many foods have gluten – I came up this morning and researched my food last night to find out that I ate peanuts that are not gluten free! In my case giving up any thing sweet really helped, including fruit. Iv had psoriasis for over 40 years and have just stuck to a gluten and wheat free diet for just two weeks so far and can not believe it,my psoriasis has gone!!. Any advice would be ideal as I am not sure where to start – whethere i go sugard free or dairy free or use the book others are recommending? x. I am 53 years old and was diagnosed with psoriasis last Feb 2013 although I suspected I had it when I first saw the 2×4 red patch above my left hip on my back 2 years ago. The interesting thing is that my psoriasis (scalp, back, arms, and legs) completely cleared up. BTW I went gluten free last winter and it did not help my psoriasis.
Does anyone know if there is a link between Psoriasis and Celiac? Gluten-free doesn’t make my psoriasis go away, but dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, beef-free does. I was on prescription meds and they never helped but going gluten-free has done wonders for my skin. Like, every winter I get one or two little spots, plus on my scalp. Latest Tweets. But my dermatologist told me that diet has nothing to do with my skin. We even asked an allergy Dr. if there was any link between gluten and psoriasis and he said no.

When I did go on a month-long gluten bender (due to back-to-back vacations), I saw my old spots flare right back up again. I have had psoriasis since we had bushfires and I went a bit berserk. Being gluten free does not help my pain an inflammation. Not every cycles significantly and not all that do flare in the winter. Since people most commonly are trying to do something to treat the disease they can miss the pattern for a decade or more failing to distinguish between the normal course of the disease and the impact of whatever they are doing as treatment. I changed doctors last year and she thinks that my skin condition may be a result of being allergic to gluten. I have tried going gluten free and the skin condition got better but did not go away.

Long sleeves helped some in the winter unless my lower arms were already broken out. Every winter, like clockwork, I get Eczema on my legs. This has been going on for about the last ten years. In the late spring or early summer it would go away. Anything with gluten in it (soy sauce, vinegars,etc. etc) causes a reaction. However, the most up-to-date research does not support this explanation. Anecdotally, many people find that their eczema goes away when they adopt a gluten-free diet. Including glycine-rich foods like homemade bone broth and organ meat can help speed the healing of both the gut and the skin (glycine is an essential component of connective tissue and the extracellular matrix that acts as a scaffold for cells). However, no eczema this past winter, much to my surprise! Have you seen his latest book?
Dear Dr. Fine, My daughter has done very well following the gluten free diet even though she sometimes finds it hard. My daughter, I believe, also was getting some pulmonary fibrosis and now she no longer gasps for air in between breaths and doesn’t finish dead last in the mile run. I am hearing that as more people with microscopic colitis go GF and consider other intolerances as well, they are improving immensely. She has helped guide me into much better health and she used your tests to do this. If your body does not do well with gluten, you are not less important for not having celiac.

Additionally, studies have shown that many people with psoriasis may also have a gluten sensitivity, and eating a gluten-free diet can help reduce psoriasis symptoms. Last Updated: 3/10/2015.
Is there a connection between the two autoimmune diseases? The study results did not find a connection, and stated that a link between the two diseases would have to be attributed to their common root in inflammation and autoimmune phenomena in the people found to have both conditions. There have been no formal scientific studies about Raynaud’s symptom improvement on a gluten free diet. My raynauds symptoms have gotten worse for the last 3 years, to the point I considered moving my family south. I hope catching it early helps. There is a strong link between both Hashimoto’s and Graves’ and gluten intolerance, and all people with autoimmune thyroid disease should be screened.

I had incredibly bad dandruff for 2-3 years, worse in the winter, tried the Neutrogena and Nizoral mentioned above in addition to a few other products. What finally helped was salon-grade super moisturizing shampoo and conditioner (FWIW, at any price level separate products are preferable to a 2-in-1). No citrus, no gluten.
