So a few months ago while reading a passage from a gastroenterology textbook, I came across mention of an association between alopecia areata and Celiac's disease. I have had undiagnosed gastrointestinal issues (primarily chronic abdominal pain episodes) and found this interesting. Does anyone here have GI issues as well? Anyone with confirmed diagnosis of Celiac's disease? I just wondered what the actual prevalence of patients with both conditions was.
In my other readings there is association of alopecia patients with other autoimmune disorders and thyroid issues. Just curious if any of you have other maladies you suffer. I'm really interested in medical cases and would love to hear from you all!
