In Topic: Hairloss & Gluten

03 March 2015 - 09:08 AM

I am also suffering from Hair loss and toe nail falling off, my finger nail started getting weird ridges in them , Dr. send me to a dermatoligest, he looked at my toenails said it looked like Lichen Planus, looked at my hair said it looked like female pattern baldness, EEeeeennnnnnnnnnntttttttt!! Wrong answer I was also complaining of no energy. Finally I went to the Dr. Just for the no energy thing and he did some vitamin levels, I was low on Folic Acid, hmmm that causes hair loss , nail problems and low energy. Go figure! Hope I get my hair back!

I agree Raven, I feel the same way. I still think they also missed my Folic Acid saying it was Lichen Planus, They never tested for Lichen planus just said thats what it was. Now still having issues, specially no energy, the Dr. Finally tested for Folic Acid and it was low. When I looked it up, Wow alot of the same issues, Hair falling out , Affects nails, Mouth sores, Huh! Energy levels. Imagine that!! I just get frustrated when they don't even try and help you!

Was the Black rice gluten-free rice? I found I can ONLY eat gluten-free rice.

In Topic: How Long Did It Take You To Really Feel Great?

w8in4dave...I'm sorry to hear that you don't feel better. That's so hard and discouraging (hugs). Has giving up your other intolerances helped? Hopefully supplementing your vitamin deficiencies will get things moving in the right direction.

Awee! Thanks, Well somedays I feel great! Somedays just feel horrid! Like someone sucked the energy right outta me! I have just started taking my Folic Acid for 2 weeks I don't know how long it takes to absorbe or if it is or not. When I am done with this bottle I am going to go get my blood levels checked again.

I agree, Next time you go out make sure you tell them you are Celiac, even if your intolerant. That way they can be sure not to cc.
