Hair...just Another Improvement :)
0

10 posts in this topic

I remember always wanting to have long hair, but it would get right to my shoulders and always look really stringy since it's thin and fine, so I kept it shorter.  I lost hair each day, but I didn't think it was too much of it and knew that losing a little bit each day was completely normal.  Fast forward to now and my almost 10 months gluten-free, and not only is my hair below my shoulders, it finally looks healthy and only a few strands come out each day.  

 

I keep seeing things change that I thought were normal, and really it was my body's way of telling me, "Hey!  Something is not right here."  

 

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Great!  My daughters always wanted longer hair!  Maybe it will happen one day.  Mine got real short just before I went gluten free.  I never lost handfuls, but it sure was thin.

Me too! My hairdresser is really impressed by how much thicker and longer it's getting. Lovely, isn't it? (Although I've just gluten myself tonight for the first time :( hope it doesn't all fall out!)

Jealous. I have super fine hair, and while it doesn't come out in clumps, it definitely doesn't like to stay in my head. It's longer than it's been in ages, cause I let it grow (and now have to deal with more tangles), but thin (and thinning hair) is just part of my genetic inheritance.
I think if it was a gluten problem for me, I'd have twice as much hair by now (if only!)

    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best
