  1. Hair Dye Products

    I am wondering about hair products because I have had a ton of hair loss over the past couple of years and believe it is related to malnutrition- I have been gluten free for a couple of months and it seems like I am not losing as much hair but am wondering if I should also change my hair care products and stop highlighting my hair. Does anyone know the mechanism for hairloss in celiac?

    What happens if someone with celiac uses hair dye/shampoos/conditioners with gluten? I have been gluten free for a few months but haven't altered my hair regimen.

    Again, thank you for all of the responses. We have had some good conversations. I think he is starting to understand what I need from him and how important this is for me, so this is good. I have also decided to start cooking more, so this should make things easier.

    WOW. I wrote my post last night before going to bed & woke up this morning to so many amazing responses. Thank you. I do have some thinking/communicating & figuring out to do. Nicole

    I was having various symptoms of celiac deisease (severe fatigue, muscle pains, hair loss, back pain, vitamin deficiencies, constipation) which have all improved since going gluten-free two months ago. I have not had a formal diagnosis yet, but am considering getting an endoscopy in a couple of weeks. My fiance says he believes that the gluten intolerance is all in my head. He thinks I feel better because I stoped eating "carbs." Of course, I try to explain to him that I eat tons of carbs (potatos, rice, chocolate). He also thinks I should go to a holistic MD to get a medication that would allow me to eat gluten. I try to explain to him that this doesn't exist, but he says it must and I just don't know about it. The fact that I have done tons of reading on celiac disease, and have a medical degree doesn't seem sway his opinion that I simply don't know what I am talking about. The main issue is that he has grown tired of me having to ask questions at restaurants. We eat out almost every meal. When I ask more than one question, he gets embarrased, annoyed and sometimes angry. He tells me it seems like I am an old lady when I do this. I feel that he is causing me to get glutened at times because I feel discouraged in asking enough questions to assure that my meal will be safe for me. I feel unsupported. Any suggestions? Anyone else have this issue with a partner?
