My bad. My hair did get fuller and gotten back some forehead balding. Hair grows back fast, and fingernails growth is better than in the past years. Compared to the same age of my father. I would have a complete head of hair, he was bald mostly forehead to the top and thin all around. The B-12 is also in keeping the hair from turning gray to fast. wink. wink.
My hair was light/thin and also balding. Been taking extra amino acids and other supplements (Glutathione (has 3 amino's in it Cysteine, Glycine, glutamic acid) Lysine, Horsetail. Just google search others. I also use gluten free shampoo with added supplements/vitamins like biotin for the hair. B-6 and B-12 vitamins. I don't take Iron supplements. Since I eat enough dark organic chocolate. I didn't go Gluten free until age 33. This site looks positive. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/best-vitamins-hair-growth#section1
As always is costs to stay healthy for anyone suffering food allergies.
Thank you once again for the replies. I'm grateful.
I'd sure love to get another GI scope but I cannot get in to see my GI doc until May at the earliest. I basically get to see him once a year now, so it's borderline useless. I was referred to a Celiac specialist nutritionist here and it was a joke. She basically said anything with a gluten-free label is safe, and I know from my experience that's not true. My GI doc has the same opinion, and it's just not worth arguing with them. I'm thinking the health care in my area is really bad.
I do have an open-minded pain clinic doctor, however, and she just just sent me for blood work regarding mast cell activation disorder, so I should know soon whether I have it or not.
My B12 was just a little low, so I'm taking 1000mcg tablets for a short while until my next round of blood work. No dental work or injections, and the only medication I'm on is Prozac (which I'm sure is not helping my stomach at all) but I'm not well enough to taper off it yet either. It's so frustrating. I was put on it for pain, it never worked, and now I'll go into withdrawals coming off it. Grrrrrr!
Yes I started a food journal too (food, mood, poo'd).
I guess I'll just have to wait until I see the GI doc again to ask for a follow up scope of my guts.
I actually had a brain MRI during my first episode last year because they wanted to rule out a stroke. My MRI said cavernous malformation with veinous anomaly but the doctor said my MRI was normal. I was wondering if you had specific terminology for your damage?
