yepunsarang added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithDepressed About Hair Thinning/ LossHello all,
I haven't posted recently due to a lot of stresses regarding internship and I just got a virus so I'm recuperating from that.
I wrote an earlier post about how to deal with the amount of hair thinning. Thought I'd suck it up and wait, eat well, continue taking my vitamins. And I was too busy to do much about it either.
My health insurance was having issues with renewal, so I was practically waiting for all that to clear up as well. It still is a mess, but I did see the doctor this past week and talked to him about my worries. He seems VERY convinced I don't have it---he only did a bloodtest, but of course i came out negative because I haven't had gluten than more than half a year.
It's making me severely depressed looking in the mirror, and I get so upset by this. No one seems to notice, because it's so gradual and of course they don't care. But I can see it so clearly---month by month, it get's visibly worse. It's no doubt about it--the texture is not so silky anymore, my hair is getting lighter from thinning, and it's getting flatter. I feel almost desperate.
I demanded the doctor take a vitamin panel bloodtest but he said that testing for Vitamin D and Bs are the only necessary ones and the other tests are just scams.. ? So I'm not getting those tests done. I have no idea what to do. At this rate, I'm afraid I'm going to become a complete obsessive person over my hair. What can I do in the meantime, while I wait or something?
I'm taking maxi-hair, omega 3, vitamin C. A lot of people suggest all sorts of things, but it gets to be kind of overwhelming and expensive purchasing all sorts of herbal things, and everything. What do you think are the absolute MUSTS to reviving your hair?
I was contemplating taking protein powder, is that a good idea? Also any words of encouragement, or happy stories of people who get their hair back, would be much appreciated.

yepunsarang added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithHair RegimenHello everyone!
This is my first post on this forum and I'm a newbie!
I am actually not too sure if I am gluten intolerant, but ever since going gluten free since Italy (aye karamba!)
I feel soo much better, better than I've felt in years actually. But one awful side affect I've been experiencing is
hair loss/ thinning rapidly, in addition to my skin getting more sallow, dull. My complexion used to be so beautiful,
and glowing at all times!
I'm getting worried about this and am thinking it's probably due to lack of vitamin absorption. I'm taking Maxi Hair
by Country Life right now for one month. But I feel as though my hair is getting thinner (it's not falling out as much though).
I'm wondering what all of you are doing for your hair regimen (especially in the vitamin department). I'm just overwhelmed by
the things people are suggesting (nearly everything). Also, what do you think I can do about my skin and hair?
Thanks so much guys!
