Sparse Bangs

Recommended Posts

My hair has been very thin in bang area since I was a child (I recall back to 10 years old...not sure if I had it longer). Could this be related to celiac disease? Although I have been on gluten-free diet for 1 1/2 years, the hair is still gone there.

If you have untreated Celiac disease, hair loss can be a symptom.  However, with it being in just that area, it makes me wonder if it is from something else.  If you wear ponytails or do stuff where tension is on your hair often, that can cause hair loss. Usually when you see a young lady with thinning, fuzzy hair in the temples and above the forehead, that is what that is from.  Could be something to think about.  Other times hair loss and hair line patterns are genetic.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.

It can also be from a lack of a vitamin or a mineral, If you have had Celiac and not treated. Maybe get a get a vitamin level checked??

My hair thinned at the front due to celiac disease and hypothyroidism.  I had very thick hair as a child though.  Now... I would have to start my bangs back on the top of my head.  LOL

 

If your hair changed, I would suspect disease.  If it has always been thin I would guess it is genetics or possibly a deficiency you have had since infancy.

 

Best wishes.
