  1. So far, so good on the eggs. It has been 4 days. It would be so great to get eggs back. So many great gluten-free bread recipes use eggs... My hair loss was pretty much spread throughout my head. At one point, it was so much that I could run my hand over my scalp and feel the little bristles all...
  2. Thanks so much! I'm going to go get some right now.
  3. Over this past summer, both of my daughters and I have discovered we are gluten-intolerant, even though we all test negative for celiac disease. We all express our intolerance a little differently -- I through my skin, my youngest daughter through her energy level, and my oldest daughter through...
  4. Carrie, My heart goes out to you. You just want your kids to have the same options as other kids, but we know that they simply can't. My kids are getting used to packing their own gluten-free cupcake or brownie when they go to someone's bd party; they know they have to turn down classroom treats...
  5. I am currently off all gluten and all dairy. I have been off sugar and eggs, too, because I tested moderate for them and initially I was reacting to even those lower-reaction foods. I have been able to have a little sugar with some success and today I tried eggs, after 6 months without them. Just...
  6. I have to say I am thrilled I am not alone in these bizarre symptoms. I am happy to report that after 7 weeks of being gluten-free, the hair loss stopped. It has been a couple of weeks now, and every day in the shower, I still worry that it might not last. But when I take my hand away from my hair...
  7. I do have to take another look at corn. I had been adding it in more heavily than usual (not many grains to choose from). Interesting you mention nightshades... I had been having some finger joint pain and read an article in Living Without (great magazine for celiacs and people with other allergies...
  8. Thank you so much for your reply, Bobcatgirl. It is an embarrassing situation. I'm mortified at the hair that comes out. Last week I did a fruit and vegetable fast for four days. It really isn't too bad because you can eat all you want -- as long as it's fruit and vegies. After the fast was over...
  9. Oakpoint, do you have any other symptoms besides your scalp? And have you tested for celiac disease? I"m also curious if your scalp problems came on all of a sudden, or if you've had them most of your life. I just got my results back and they were negative for celiac disease, but I live gluten...
  10. Thanks, Karen. Interesting you mention that -- Thyroid problems run in my family -- my uncles and cousins all have it. Mine has been checked and shown to be normal... Is there is another type of test that is more sensitive that I should request? My knowledge of thyroid tests is minimal... Thanks...
  11. Hi all, My first post! I'm so glad to find this forum. It is so nice to find a place where everyone is in the same boat as you... My recent past: In January, my scalp started doing strange things. It had patches where the skin had thickened quite a bit. I could push it around with my finger...
