Hair Color
0

33 posts in this topic

What hair color do most Celiacs have? A whole bunch of Red Heads claim to be related to me,and I think they assume that if I'm a Celiac , I must be related to their Red Hair or something.I think they are crazy-I really do. Most Celiacs are brown haired aren't they? Or are they mostly red haired? Red Hair is rare no matter what the condition, so it's not like most people have red hair anyway-I think they are begging for us to be in their hair color group.Red Haired people want brown Haired Celiacs? Am I right,because we're the cool ones.

The picture to the left is a gluten free birthday cake-recipe on this site . Pretty Yummy

I'm a redhead! But the other celiacs I know are 2 blondes and 3 brunettes. It would be interesting to know if there's a correlation.

I have eight different shades of brown that gets blond streaks in the sun. My hair is very indecisive. But I have a blond friend and a few brunette acquaintances with Celiac, or some level of gluten intolerance.

Mine is very dark brown but we also have redheads and blondes in the family. I started going grey in my teens though. Anyone else? I think a lot of us do.

24, no gray. My Mum's getting some gray, but she's 55. So no early graying here.

I have auburn, more to the brown, color. My fiance who is likely to be celiac has bright Irish red hair. the only other diagnosed celiac that I know has black hair (probably brown and then dyed to be black)

I have naturally light brown hair, but I use henna to make it a lovely auburn. I add lots of honey to make it a nice autumn leaf color. I call it "burnt pumpkin". :D

My hair isn't graying but my Grandmother who I'm pretty sure had Celiac disease had completely white by the time she was 25. She died from colon cancer when she was 38.

My dad was a blonde and I'm sure that's where my celiac disease came from. He died at 38 from lung cancer. I'm dark blonde with grey hair in front, I'm 50.

I'm a legitimate light strawberry blonde.

All my many celiac relatives are all solid brunettes though. 10 of those at last count. (I guess I was the milk-man's daughter)

As a child, my hair was sort of an honey blonde, and as I got older, it changed to a golden brown. It's a rich brown now, but I get lots of those golden and honey highlights in the summer when I'm out in the sun. I started getting gray hairs when I was 18! More keep coming every day. I notice them because they're like dog hairs (kinky and wiry and they stick out) but others don't notice them because my hair has so many natural highlights.

My mother is celiac and has dark brown hair (with lots of gray, but shhh that's a secret, she dyes it) but is not of Irish ancestry--she's Polish and Romanian.

    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.
