I have medium to dark brown hair - was blond as a kid. I started to get grays very early. Now I have a problem that every time I dye my hair brown to cover the grays it turns red, no matter how much ash is used. Interesting article on the redhead connection.

Yep, I'm also a redhead. Red hair is recessive, and so is celiac. I wonder if they're linked somehow in a way we haven't discovered yet.

Or, as someoene suggested above, could just be the gene pool.

Just a FYI - Celiac is not a recessive trait. Not sure about red hair as what may be percieved as red may actually be blond or brown genetically?

Good point. The other sources I read were probably wrong.

As for being a redhead, I'm talking about true red hair: http://genetics.thetech.org/ask/ask44

I am blonde--but had alot of reddish tones when I was young...Some grey hair--so I use hair dye to match my regular color now. Although I am not dx with Celiac--I have many issues (past and present) that Celiacs also have. Our "sensitive" nature to the world around us maybe? :D

Light brown/dirty blond but my dad is (was) a redhead.

How many of us have relatives with red hair?

    • Thank you so much!  I just called to make an appointment with Dr. Fasano, He is booked out till September I will try Maureen Leonard.  If I can't get appointments for awhile, do I keep my son on gluten?  At the moment, we are waiting for his 2nd test results (celiac panel) to come in.  (Should be within the next few days) to ensure it wasn't a false positive before.  My other child is being tested as well.

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh.
