  1. Did You Have Hair Loss From Celiac?

    I just wanted to post that I have been gluten free for 3 years... prior to this i had major hair loss starting in 8th grade. I went to see a dr in 8th grade, highschool and again in college... the only thing I was tested for was having too much testosterone? of course i didnt (im a girl!), and was told it was just how i was and would have to deal with it and thats why stars like bruce willis are bald. lol.... anyway... i have been gluten free for 3 years and not until this year have i seen a huge noticeable difference because i have so many new hairs that are about 3 inches long... and I am sooo freaking happy about it. before, it was bad to the point i was embarrassed to wear my hair down and go in the sun, because you could see through my hair super sad and depressing... i also had major ear problems my entire life... tubes in my hear, ear drum burst, vertigo... eczema... shy, introverted, depressed.... dude my body wasnt getting any vitamins... anyway... i wanted to post this so that if anyone happens on this site and they have these symptoms... they might get tested or go on the diet.... i am a whole different person now. YEOW!
