Okay, I Am Confused...

I don't quite understand why we have to be careful about hair dye.... Does the dye absorb through our scalp? It can't be because of the hands, because we wear gloves when we apply it..... Is it only celiacs with DH that have to worry, or all of us?

Thanks for any input.....

Well, I know that the gluten would not be absorbed through the scalp. Gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin. Obviously, a shampoo should be gluten-free.....after all, it could get in your mouth, eyes, etc. I had actually been thinking about that lately, cause I thought I had read to be careful about it, but didn't remember why. Hmm.....could it be something about if your hair gets in your mouth? I don't really know, but I had been thinking about that the past few days.

I cannot imagine why hair dye would be a problem. However, some people want to make sure EVERYTHING they use is gluten-free, which is OK.

I'm not an expert, but I have experience with the hair dye sensitivity. I have celiac disease and DH. Most hair dyes leave me with DH blisters in my scalp and on my face. It doesn't bother me on the inside, just on the outside! (And I hope no one is getting dye in their mouth. I don't think that's very tasty!)

Hi,

I don't have DH, but after I went gluten-free my scalp started to itch,

so i stopped using shampoos with wheat, but it still itches.

I use scalpicin for the itch. I am terrified to use any coloring

or perms. One time I had a perm and my scalp burned

for weeks. That was before I went gluten -free. My theory is that

I have a skin sensitivity to a lot of products and have to be careful.

I use hair dye... no problems that I know of! I did recently switch to a non-perm. color though. Hmmm... let me know if you find out anything conclusive!!! :(

I get my hair colored too, no problems with that in the past. But I think my shampoo may be affecting me??? I thought I'd read somewhere that those with celiac disease may become sensitive to other products down the line (such as hair color, shampoo, detergents, etc...) Can't recall where or when though. I'm gonna have to look through some old celiac disease research stuff. I have binders full. Maybe speak to a stylist regarding your sensitivity and see and he/she can recommend anything. Perhaps speaking w/ a dermatologist would be beneficial too.

    • Gluten free backing food
      I just went back & checked the ingredients in those gluten-free MRE's. It says modified food starch & doesn't specify from what so if I were you I would certainly check with the company & have them clarify that to your satisfaction.
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      So I have celiac disease and also Hashimoto's thyroiditis (but not on meds because it's apparently "not bad enough" yet...). When I was still on gluten, I had chronically high cortisol and also high blood sugar and insulin. And when these were high (cortisol, blood sugar, insulin) I had constant hunger. Like I was starving all the time, and eating didnt help and often actually made me hungrier. It was a pretty horrible time, and no one even thought to test my blood sugar for a long time because I was young (21/22), thin (bmi 19), and have ZERO family history of diabetes. When I got off the gluten, cortisol came down over time, blood sugar improved some but still not ideal. (Getting glutened raises these again) For further blood sugar support, I took chromium and cinnamon and cut down on carbs (I'm not super low carb though). A few months ago I started taking berberine and that's helped a lot. My recent blood tests showed that my fasting blood sugar was 4.7 and my A1c was 5.6. My doctor was pleased. However, what I don't get is that I still have hunger issues at times. I mean, it has improved a ton since the worst times. I do have meals where I feel satisfied. But other times I feel like I haven't eaten very much at all after a meal. I thought when I got my blood sugar into the normal range I wouldn't have to think about this anymore, i would just eat, feel satisfied, not start feeling hungry until at least a few hours later, etc.It doesn't even seem to correlate to whether the meal is higher carb or not.
    • Gluten free backing food
      This is not going to be easy for you. You're going to have to change the foods in the pack out from time to time rather than just packing it & leaving it for years. I'm thinking weight is a factor too. I have a few suggestions..... http://www.walmart.com/ip/13398018?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227010019313&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40886859272&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=78817797152&veh=sem      Tuna in pouches.

    • What does this all mean?
      It's terrible that you are left hanging like this! I'm so sorry. Can you get to the doctors office & get a copy of the of the test results? If you can, then you could post them here & we have people who can interpret them for you.
