"I have tried gluten free and given up on it a bit too early, I think. I recently went gluten free three weeks ago. I'll keep you updated on my progress and whether or not it is working for me! "

About Me:
I have had alopecia since 2002. Within the first year of total hair loss when I was 18 I had total remission. My hair begain to fall back out 2 years later. I have never had remission yet since. I began to loose my eyebrows and eyelashes this year. Over all the ups and downs I decided to not be down about the puzzeling disease, instead I am trying to raise money to find a cure and raise awareness. I have created a fundraiser with my boyfriend called ascent for alopecia...

I am still gluten free and now have a couple pigmented hairs on my scalp! My eyebrows have almost completely grown back as well as the hair on my arms! I have a head full of hair but it is just not pigmented yet. I am now shaving my head every 2 days for my vac suction to stay on. I have noticed the past 2 weeks my scalp has been producing more oil than in the past. Not sure what that is about at the moment but I will keep everyone posted!

an update on my gluten free diet: I am going in to the third month of a gluten free diet. My arm hair has almost all grown back! I wear a vac suction piece and have not shave my head atleast once a week if not twice. I have hair all over my scalp but it does not have pigment just yet! Hopefully soon though! I will keep everyone posted!

Hi Dana,
I think it is great that you are having a fundraiser to try to raise money on a cure for alopecia and to promote awareness. I spoke at my daughters school last month on alopecia and you wouldnt believe how many people did not know what it was. I hope there will be a cure soon.

Hey Dana!

That is very interesting! Let me know how it works for you! I didn't know that you could still be allergic to gluten even if you tested negative for Celiac disease. Keep me posted! Best of luck!
