I could be wrong but I believe hair has a roughly 8 week growing cycle. So don't give up to soon. Your hair could be getting healthier from the root up and it simply be too early to tell. Do you find your general health improving? In your prior post you also mentioned "no matter how hard I pull the hair doesn't come out" that sounds like it is improving from being easily pulled out. A good sign in my opinion.

I found hair pulling for me to be associated with anxiety. And was explicitly told by a nurse practitioner that for me it is and anxiety symptom. I found myself dealing again with it today after having set aside the gluten free eating habit that I had developed. i had half a pastry sunday and a few other small wheat present items recently not thinking it would be a big deal.Then a sandwich on regular wheat bread Monday and again tuesday. Yesterday I had an emotional meltdown and find that it is a repeat of the awful experience I had in July during a vacation when I also was not consistent about being gluten free. It was terrible. The hair pulling, examining and meddling with it is not terrible for me but noticable it used to interfere with the amount of time I would have free to do other things and occasionally be embarasing.

I hope your gluten free journey continues to be an improvement for your health. The hair growth is just one indicator. I encourage you to continue and see what other benefits you may find with it in time. Give your hair and general health time plenty of time for improvement.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • 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.
