Maybe It's Dairy, Not Gluten?

03 September 2013 - 05:57 PM

So I posted over the weekend about ordering a gluten sensitivity test (which I did), but I saw an esthetician today for my horrible cystic acne so she could inject some of the cysts.  She mentioned that trying to cut out dairy first (before tackling gluten) might be the way to go.  Now I'm considering doing that for a few weeks while waiting for my gluten test and its results.  I love, love, love greek yogurt (daily) and lattes with 1% cow's milk (also daily).  Will be tough!!
Anyone have good luck with doing this??

Gluten Sensitivity?

02 September 2013 - 10:14 AM

I already posted this under "Adult Acne" before I realized there was a Diet section....

Hi all,
I just joined this site today. I'm 39 years old and have been dealing with acne as long as I can remember. However, the last 3 -4 months have been the worst of my life! Deep, painful, ugly cystic acne....lovely! It's taken a toll on me or sure....visibly and mentally. So, my next game plan is to get tested for gluten sensitivity. I see on the forums that some folks have tried this. I got blood work done a year ago and it came back negative, but I've been researching and found out that the stool test available online is much more accurate (http://www.enterolab.com). Has anyone ordered from this site and if so, did you order just the $99 gluten sensitivity kit or do you think I should also test sensitivity to dairy, soy, & egg as well (more expensive, but maybe worth it). Suggestions? Thanks!
