  1. Thanks for your replies. Apparently I'm not the only one who's thinking this gluten sensitivity thing might be responsible for our baby faces: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91748-failure-to-thrivelooking-younger-in-young-adults-due-to-celiac/ It would explain a lot of things. I've also read that there are far more celiacs with social anxiety disorder than in the general population. I've also struggled with social anxiety my whole life. PCOS and tmj problems are also linked to gluten sensitivity. My dentist told me I should go on a gluten free and dairy free diet. But the youthful face is baffling to me. I know it can be genetic however, nobody in my family looks that young. I don't just look younger than my age, when I tell people how old I am, they look at me as if they've just seen a ghost. They can't understand stand and neither can I. It would be great if it could all be explained by a gluten sensitivity.
  2. Hi, I'm a 34 year old woman who looks ridiculously young for her age. I was wondering if a gluten sensitivity could be the cause? I am quite tall, 5 feet 8 inches so I don't think it's a hormonal deficiency, I dress normally and my hair looks normal too but I have the face of a teenager and I don't understand why. This has affected me in every aspect of my life from relationships to employment and I'm now very depressed because of it. I do have health problems that could be linked to gluten. I have had pcos-like symptoms since my teenage years although I've never been diagnosed with it. I had acne, took low dose Accutane for 3 months when I was 19 which eliminated most of it permanently. I've had irregular menstrual cycles (too close together) all my life and ovarian cysts. I also have tmj problems, social anxiety disorder and occasional dizziness. I don't think I've ever been tested for celiac because I don't know what the test is. I had a complete blood test and urine test done about 6 months ago which was normal and several years ago I had a blood test for hormones which also turned out normal although my DHEA levels were in the high-normal range. Do you think I might have a gluten sensitivity? Could it be the cause of my ageless face? Thanks!
