longhorn61 replied to longhorn61's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsThanks for that, I am hoping once hormones level out it will all return to normal. I have just heard that pregnancy can trigger autoimmune issues like gluten intolerance.
longhorn61 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms]At 8 weeks pregnant i noticed I had a lot of hair falling out so much that I have 2 bald spots now. I also have had a re-occuring face rash that itches and blisters. It was diagnosed as impetigo, but it keeps coming back, I have had it 4 times in this pregnancy. I am now 34 weeks. I read online that ppl can have rashes and hair loss as symptoms of gluten intolerance. I have given up gluten for about 4 weeks now. And no regrowth on hair or any other help, just more hungry I do stil have a small dry skin rash around my nose and chin, its little red bumps under the skin. I am wondering if that is just pregnancy related because it is not going away. I don't think gluten is making a huge difference just in my amount of money I have to spend on groceries! I value your opinions on here, do you think my hair loss and skin rashes are hormonal related or something else. I am so tired of trying to figure it out. I have also read online of many women who have expereinced the same type of hair loss with their pregnancies. But I notice when I do not eat gluten I do have more energy, I don't get an overly full feeling, and I am less bloated I guess. But I wonder if that is just bc I am taking in less fiber? Also, I feel more nasal congestion with wheat.
