Posterboy,

 

Thank you dearly for you invested response. I am very grateful to have found your support.

 

I will take a look at these articles now; love the feeling of being in a new direction towards feeling better!

 

And thank you for all the hope regarding hair loss.

 

My best to you,

H

ChargersFan,

Thanks for your kind words.

I have only tried to help others the same way I found help through supplementation and the grace of God.

2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Search for EnnisTx, Knitty Kitty or the Posterboy and you will see many good threads on how we have supplemented to help many of our health problems one can and often does develop(s) on our celiac journey.

It makes sense to me to replace the nutrients our body is no longer able to absorb.

we need a boost sometimes . . .and supplementation can give you that boost till your villi grow back.  This is not something you will do forever . . .but  a cycle.

I find cycle of 3 to 6 months helps most people. . . .especially with B-Vitamins take them 2/day because you can only store them for approx. 12 hours then you 1/2 low (in a manner of speaking) for the rest of the day.  taking them 2/day helps fill up your reserve to help fight (off) the stress you are having as a student.  It works as well for Magnesium Glycinate too!

And since 4 of the 8 B-Vitamins are necessary for the Krebs cycle ... chronic Fatigue can develop.

see this research entitled "Thiamine and fatigue in inflammatory bowel diseases: an open-label pilot study" and this thread about this topic.

https://www.celiac.com/forums/topic/123179-severe-fatigue-ruining-life/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23379830

And taking a B-complex gives you all 8 of the B-Vitamins at once.

Also If the doctor's have not checked your Vitamin D levels you might want to supplement with it too.

See these livestrong articles.

https://www.livestrong.com/article/285156-low-vitamin-d-hair-loss/

 

https://www.livestrong.com/article/213387-vitamins-that-double-hair-growth/

and this vitamin D council online article about the topic.

https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/is-there-a-link-between-vitamin-d-and-female-hair-loss/

and why this study is for/on women . . .that does not mean it wouldn't/couldn't help men... it just means it has been studied yet.

and here is a nice overview article also on livestrong on how a B-complex can help you.

https://www.livestrong.com/article/383697-how-does-vitamin-b-complex-help-your-body/

I must stop for now but I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advice.

Good luck and God speed on your continued journey.

As always “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included.

2 Timothy 2: 7

I had hair loss and one of my iron values was very low (iron sat was 8 ) but other iron values were more or less okay.  I've been taking two iron pills per day for months and I sort of felt better.

My GI doctor said the iron malabsorption is probably not related to celiac, but we'll see what my hematologist thinks next month.

As for B vitamins, please be careful.  My father was into health foods etc. and he ended up having Vitamin B6 toxicity.  I have also had high folate and B12 - even when feeling really fatigued - so I went to a kid's vitamin instead of an adult vitamin.

raha,

Your dad might have a MTHFR gene defect.

Here is an article about it.  Some people react similarly to synthetic folic acid and need the more natural folate form.

https://www.celiac.com/articles.html/journal-of-gluten-sensitivity/journal-of-gluten-sensitivity-winter-2018-issue/the-mthfr-mutation-r4344/

Methyl B vitamin forms are best for those with this unique metabolic problem.

Here is also another online article/website that comes ups as a popular results search when you google MTHFR gene defects that has a good overview as well.

https://www.easy-immune-health.com/mthfr-gene.html

You and your dad should be tested for this gene defect to see if it negatively affecting your health.  many times homocysteine levels are elevated when this is a problem for someone.  I had to take a homocysteine tablet once upon a time to help my elevated homcysteine levels that are now normal.

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advice and good luck on your continued journey to good health.
