Hair Loss?

4 posts in this topic

I haven't been diagnosed by my Doctor, my blood test was negative and I'm the test was also negative for anaemia, so he's diagnosed IBS.

I've had stomach/bowel problems for as long as I can remember (I'm now 30), particularly bad since I was 17. At the same time, my hair thinned considerably on the top of my head and has never come back.

After telling me I wasn't anaemic according to the blood tests, my doctor said I could be mildly anaemic and an iron supplement may help with my hair thinning?!?

I've recently started a gluten-free diet and am feeling SIGNIFICANTLY better. I once in the past (unintentionally) did a gluten-free diet for about 6 weeks and this was the only time in my life I've ever been symptom free. Oats upset me too.

Any advice about the hair thing??

Thank you

Have you been tested for thryoid function? I'd not only have the regular thyroid panel done, but the antithryoid antibodies run as well. My TSH is in normal range (1.2), but I have antithyroid antibodies and my hair still falls out. When I became technically hypothryoid (TSH 13), I was put on Synthroid and my hair finally stopped falling out. I've since had a baby, gone hyperthyroid, quit my medicine, and am now back in that gray zone where I'd rather be on meds but can't b/c my TSH is normal.

Good luck,

Elaine

Also, my hair did not start to grow back until I had been on the diet for 2 years. If you haven't been on the diet very long, you might just try being patient for a while. My hair has now thickened up a great deal. Shirley

Oh, thanks - just be patient, OK - here's hoping my hair grows back nicely. I suppose hair growing is a slow process.

Btw, I've been tested for just about everything possible, all blood tests have been clear - thyroid, celiac disease, diabetes, hormones, everything!

:D
