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 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 agree with everything cyclinglady said. You need to be tested BEFORE you go gluten free!!!!!! I was just reading an interview with Joseph A. Murray, MD who is head of the celiac dept. at Mayo Clinic & one of the top celiac experts & researchers in the world. He talks about this subject of going gluten free before testing many times during this interview. It's interesting reading. Please take a little time to read it all the way through. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/820397_3

      That's interesting. I asked her if there was a blood test I could take, she said no. I don't think she feels I have celiac disease, per se, just wants to rule out an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. If after the 6 weeks, there is no difference, she suggested eliminating something else from my diet. She mentioned leaky gut and GMOs as well. Thanks for your input. I appreciated it.
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      In Mexican restaurants, I ask them to heat the corn tortillas in foil.  Also, make sure you ask if the chips are made in a dedicated fryer.

      Your GI is sadly mis-informed!  You should be tested for Celiac Disease before embarking on a gluten free diet.  Celiac Disease should be ruled out first!  So many doctors think that you have to be malnourished and wasting away to have celiac disease -- not true!  You can develop celiac disease at ANY age.  Do you have any other autoimmune disorders?   Celiac disease is also genetic.  So, if you have it, your kids and sibliings should be tested even if they are symptom free!  Celiac Disease has so many other issues that come with having it.  That's why having a proper diagnosis is important.  You will get the care you need.  Also, sticking to a life-long especially when you are older and it is hard to make changes in general (hey, I'm there!).    Your GP can actually order the celiac blood panel.  In addition, I would search around for another GI (one who is celiac savvy).   Here's a link regarding the exact tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I encourage you to read up on celiac disease.  Only you can be your best health advocate!  I wish you well!  Feel free to ask any questions!  
    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
