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.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
