Female Hair Loss from Celiac Disease and Gluten Allergy - Recovery and Success Story - Thursday, August 14, 2008

I received this from a female hair loss patient who wanted to share her hair regrowth success story with our patient community. In addition, it demonstrates why it's critical for women with hair loss to first undergo testing by a dermatologist / trichologist to determine the cause of their hair loss.

I wanted to give you hope if you're here searching for answers to your hair loss, especially if you're being told you're crazy or imagining the hair loss. I've been losing hair (noticeably) for almost 2 years now. I was told i was imagining it, nobody else notices it, I was crazy, stressed, you name it. I came to this hair loss forum and to several others looking for answers. I finally got my answer and hope I can help someone else. I am allergic to gluten which is found in wheat, barley and rye products. It attacked my intestines which did not allow my body to absorb nutrients. I was tired all the time, had muscle weakness, my scalp hurt, and I lost over half of my hair, causing baldness. I also had a lot of stomach issues. If this sounds familiar, go get tested for celiac disease or an allergy to gluten. It may be the answer you're looking for.
