  1. I really want to try supplementing with biotin for hair loss. Does anyone have recommendations of gluten-free biotin supplements (that are available in Canada)? Please help! Thank you! I did come across Naka Pro Biotin, but it only says "no added gluten" and there's no contact number.
  2. I have high TPO antibodies indicative of Hashi's, but my TSH is pretty much always in range - except for a period of time when it was in the high 4s. For the last while it's been in the range of 1 something. I've seen some people say that anyone with Hashi's should be on thyroid replacement, but...
  3. I need to be both gluten-free and low-carb, and a lot of those recipes call for almond flour. What brands of almond flour are gluten free? I know many of you order from nuts.com but I live in Canada and I think the shipping would be a lot? I get other flour from Bob's Red Mill, but a popular...
  4. I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And...
  5. Hello, I purchased Bob's Red Mill coconut flour (marked gluten free) to do some low-carb baking. Are their flours safe for celiacs? I thought there was some controversy lately with that company but I don't know if that was about their gluten-free oats or something? Thanks
  6. I was just wondering if hemp seeds/hemp hearts are safe? I thought I read once that hemp seeds are grown by wheat so they are never safe, but I really have no idea if that's true or just more circulating misinformation, so I thought I'd ask here. Are there any safe brands of hemp seeds?
  7. Yeah I could be reacting to something else in it...it might not even be related to this supplement. I just never know with supplements, like if it says free from gluten, is that enough? What about cross-contamination in manufacturing?
  8. Has anyone taken the supplement New Nordic Hair Volume? The website says "This product is free from sugar, salt, gluten, yeast, soya and dairy products and is formulated without the use of preservatives, flavours or colours of any kind. Manufactured in the EU, under pharmaceutical control of...
  9. I'm been experiencing hair loss over the last couple of months that seemed to start out of nowhere. I've been gluten-free for 13 months so I don't know what's happening now?? I've had hair loss due to low iron in the past but my most recent ferritin was 69 (in Dec 2015). I thought it could...
  10. Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure how much fat I'm having, I will check. That could be contributing. Yup I do know about the link between Type 1 and celiac. But when it was first discovered my blood sugar was high, my insulin was tested and it was high...actually it was double the normal amount...
  11. So I have celiac disease and also Hashimoto's thyroiditis (but not on meds because it's apparently "not bad enough" yet...). When I was still on gluten, I had chronically high cortisol and also high blood sugar and insulin. And when these were high (cortisol, blood sugar, insulin) I had constant...
  12. @notme! - I'm just curious why you said feeling fine until you have a baby is a red flag. Does celiac disease often get activated after a pregnancy? It seems like that's what happened to my mom. After she had me, she had extreme fatigue, ferritin plummeted even though before she had great irons store...
