  1. Hair Thinning / Eyebrow Loss and Excessive Sweating  ...

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone else has this problem.  Since around the time I was diagnosed with Celiac (10 years ago) I noticed that my eyebrows were thinning (now completely gone). Over the last few years my hair is getting very thin on top and hairline receding ... getting to be very noticeable.  Also seem to have an excessive sweating problem.  I do have Hypothyroidism and recently had my meds increased.

    Been doing some research online and found some info on alopecia which I had never heard about.  They don't really seem to have much info on it yet ... it is called Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia.  It sounds like what I have and the pictures looks like my problem. I did see a Dermatologist a few years ago and she didn't know what my problem was ... maybe alopecia.  She didn't think it was from Thyroid because you lose only 1/3 of your eyebrows and mine were almost completely gone at that time.  She also thought it could be from Celiac.

    Of course, after reading about this form of Alopecia I started thinking that maybe it is a Celiac side affect.  Does anyone else have this problem?  If so, have you found a solution?
