Hello everyone!

I'm 19 years old male,(hope i'm not posting this on the wrong section!) and i have a question, hope i don't bother.

Does someone know a successful case of beard and body hair growth after leaving gluten in my age or older? I ask this because i finally discovered the celiac condiction, but when i was 14 i had more mustache than now, 1 year ago it started to fall, the more i shaved, the more it fallen, i still have some hair growth, but it's very inrregular and also weak!

*Also, all the males of my family have full beard, all i got is some facial hair on the chin which i don't shave because i'm afraid it never grows again...

*I alredy know that DHT is influenceded by the gluten...

Thanks in advance

Get your thyroid checked, along with all of your hormones.

And if you are using tea tree oil pr lavender or other estrogenic washes, etc. you may want to ditch those, too.

But, Celiac does weird things. Give it time.

Thyroid already checked and normal, but thank you for the tip. I will give time to see what happens...

*I already don't use those oils

With celiac, it's common to have malabsorption of hormones, such as testosterone. You might wish to get your hormone levels tested, as suggested above; however, it's also possible that you'll begin to absorb your hormones well within a short period of following a strict gluten-free diet. You might also have your zinc level checked, too, since it can affect hair growth, and the same goes for B vitamins.

I did not know the importance of B vitamins on this matter, thanks for your advice, I will check hormone levels too. Anyone knows a case similar to mine, which was successful?

*I'm on the 6 day of a strict gluten-free diet, i know, maybe it's too early to show results, but i keep the hope that my case has a solution.

*Also, i'm taking shots of myself everyday so i can post good results with my before and after on youtube (i don't know if this is good or necessary, but keeps my motivation), if it happens to have good results...

*Also (once again), young men here, get rid of the gluten as fast as you can, so you won't end like me...

Justaguy,

I'm sorry to say but some people don't see an improvement until about 3 months in and for others not until a year or more. All you can do is just give it time and try not to rush.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for the answers! Yes, i will wait for the results, till there i will do other things to increase my T and DHT rates, like go to gym and take vitamins.

What would scare me is the possibility of never revert this situation, i see soo much potential lost in the gluten... But anyway let's keep going.

Another thought for you. The supplement Biotin is for hair growth. Also for stronger hand and toe nails.

Good luck :)

    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
