Help Me With Some Cases

Hello everyone!

I'm 19 years old male,(hope i'm not posting this on the wrong section!) and i have a question, hope i don't bother.

Does someone know a successful case of beard and body hair growth after leaving gluten in my age or older? I ask this because i finally discovered the celiac condiction, but when i was 14 i had more mustache than now, 1 year ago it started to fall, the more i shaved, the more it fallen, i still have some hair growth, but it's very inrregular and also weak!

*Also, all the males of my family have full beard, all i got is some facial hair on the chin which i don't shave because i'm afraid it never grows again...

*I alredy know that DHT is influenceded by the gluten...

Thanks in advance

Get your thyroid checked, along with all of your hormones.

And if you are using tea tree oil pr lavender or other estrogenic washes, etc. you may want to ditch those, too.

But, Celiac does weird things. Give it time.

Thyroid already checked and normal, but thank you for the tip. I will give time to see what happens...

*I already don't use those oils

With celiac, it's common to have malabsorption of hormones, such as testosterone. You might wish to get your hormone levels tested, as suggested above; however, it's also possible that you'll begin to absorb your hormones well within a short period of following a strict gluten-free diet. You might also have your zinc level checked, too, since it can affect hair growth, and the same goes for B vitamins.

I did not know the importance of B vitamins on this matter, thanks for your advice, I will check hormone levels too. Anyone knows a case similar to mine, which was successful?

*I'm on the 6 day of a strict gluten-free diet, i know, maybe it's too early to show results, but i keep the hope that my case has a solution.

*Also, i'm taking shots of myself everyday so i can post good results with my before and after on youtube (i don't know if this is good or necessary, but keeps my motivation), if it happens to have good results...

*Also (once again), young men here, get rid of the gluten as fast as you can, so you won't end like me...

Justaguy,

I'm sorry to say but some people don't see an improvement until about 3 months in and for others not until a year or more. All you can do is just give it time and try not to rush.

Hello,

I am celiac, Gluten free for 6 months , I am 56 now, my hair started to change color as early as 28 and by 45 they were 90% grey or somthing like white/grey . Being Gluten Free it is like 60/40 Black/Gray. They look more healthy.

Zinc supplement helped me .

Hello everyone,

Thank you for the answers! Yes, i will wait for the results, till there i will do other things to increase my T and DHT rates, like go to gym and take vitamins.

What would scare me is the possibility of never revert this situation, i see soo much potential lost in the gluten... But anyway let's keep going.

Another thought for you. The supplement Biotin is for hair growth. Also for stronger hand and toe nails.

Good luck :)

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
