Have any of you had tooth decay, i. I ask because these are two issues that I’m dealing with. I’m having my 2nd cavity in a year filled today. I’d like to hear people chime in.
Yes, I’ve had tooth issues. This was shortly before I was diagnosed. I have also had hair loss issues, which I attributed to being hyperthyroid at the time.
I think lots will chime in on this one. Celiac does seriously effect our teeth in a great many cases. Many of us also have hair loss.
Some due to nutrient deficincies and some due to autoimmune factors. One thing I found helpful, other than avoiding gluten in my shampoos and such, was a good ‘hair’ vitamin. The one I take is by country life and is called Maxi Hair. I take Royal Jelly about once a day and it seems to help also.
Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying. Diagnosed by Allergist with elimination diet and diagnosis confirmed by GI in Misdiagnoses for 15 years were IBS-D, ataxia, migraines, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, parathesias, arthritis, livedo reticularis, hairloss , premature menopause, osteoporosis, kidney damage, diverticulosis, prediabetes and ulcers, dermatitis herpeformis.
Yes, yes, yes I had hair loss like you wouldn’t believe. I went from hair just past my shoulders to hair just below my ears within a few days. I had gone to get my haircut on a Sunday and my hairdresser noticed a few bald spots on my head that were in the back and sort of covered by hair so I had not caught them.
I thought it might be my thyroid so I went and had that checked and all was normal. By Tuesday my hair had dried up and sort of looked like pinestraw – and this was all over. By Thursday I had hair on one side of my head that was about three inches shorter than the other side, it all just started breaking off. It was horrible and I looked so sick to all of my co-workers.
I can say that within about 6 weeks of going gluten free it all started to grow back. It is softer than it has ever been and is growing faster than I ever remember before.
If you are really having this problem, I promise it will get better. While I was going through this problem I also started using Nioxon hair products, not cheap, but they seemed to help stop the situation from getting too much worse, added moisture to the hair and the scalp treatment is suppossed to help with hair growth.
Can’t say it will always work, but it was good for me. Oh yeah, oh yeah. I’d wash my hair and have tons of it left in the tub It also has become very dry and “tough”, not at all soft like before. I’ve been wearing short hair for a long time now, think I might cut it even shorter. The mouth issue is a worrisome one. I once had a dentist tell me the enamal issues were because I brushed too hard and too much.
Can you believe that? I don’t go to him anymore! In the past year I have had many abcesses that do not respond to antibiotics. I’ve had 2 teeth break off at the roots, under the gumline. I think I’m going to be losing at least one, if not two more. I cried when the dentist told me this last one could not be saved and had to come out. Until I was almost 30, I had only 2 fillings and thought my teeth were forever, now I’m losing too many!
I really don’t know what to do about it! This, on top of feeling so sick and so very tired Both my teeth have gotten stronger as well as my hair and nails having gone gluten free and adding the more absorbable co-enzyme B vitamins and vitamin D plus digestive and fibronylitic enzymes.
I no longer have tooth decay whereas I used to get a filling nearly every year. My gums are now healed too. My formerly thin straight hair now has body and waves.
I can no longer peel my fingernails. Avoid wheat family and “allergens” by Late 80’s doc. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath ; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall ; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can’t tolerate most herbs now. Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I’ve made progress!
Oh wow, thank you everyone for chiming in on this. I was blown away to have had a 2nd cavity in about a years time. I was told by my new dentist that my old dentist did such a bad job on my teeth and gums, that my gum line was reseeding sp? I was 29 the time.
I found that odd as could be, but now it’s all finally making sense. I’m also on thyroid meds because I was convinced that I was hypoT. Now, I’m not so sure. I have a very noticeable piece of scalp that you can see on the top of my head. I’ve been losing my hair since I was about As it is, it’s very fine. So combine the two and you’ve got some problems. I’ve got impeccable dental hygiene and to have so many cavities and to be told that my gums are in bad shape nearly freaked me out.
I’m blown away. This disease whatever you’d like to call it almost makes me feel like I’m anorexic without actually being so. It’s horrible. Am so glad we are helping you. This stuff can be pretty darn scary. If its doing that to your hair and teeth, just think what its doing to your bones! Am hoping you have gone off all gluten meanwhile. In one month I no longer needed to have gum work–when previously it was pretty bad. Try it out! The above firbronylitic enzymes also get rid of scar tissue in the intestines and thus help restore the villi sooner.
Helps against old injuries too The last 4 months I went off trace glutens that previously I wasn’t aware of and am noticing if I don’t wash my hair each day the second day its really wavy. Everyone thinks I have a perm or something but I just have a short layer cut. Pretty weird, eh? Hope you get good results too. Just be careful of getting CC’d.
It can be really shocking to your system! I am thinking of carrying around Rescue Remedy in case I get glutened inadvertently again–that is if RR doestn’t have grain alcohol in it. A series of CC’s whacked me out so much I got quite ill after not being for nearly 2 years. I have had a bone density test as well. That came back normal. I will take a look at these supplements that you mentioned as well. I have taken Rescue Remedy, but I didn’t know it could be useful for a glutening?
How so? I know it does contain alcohol, but I think it is gluten free. I thought we didn’t have to worry about alcohol? I am very watchful for CC.
I was doing so much CC for a long time I didn’t know any better that I should have eaten the straight gluten.
