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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
