Need more questions to ask.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,Welcome to the HCM.
Thank you for your question.

Dear Since there are many diseases which can cause skin manifestations and hair loss. So it need to be examined in person first.
I would like to ask that why do you think it is celiac disease. what kind of food trigger your symptoms? Do these symptoms appear only after having gluten included food? Have you gone through gluten sensitivity test?

Since if it had been celiac disease then you would have also got intestinal and gastric symptoms like loose motions, bloating, malabsorption and abdominal distention etc. More of celiac disease appears at the time of child hood after starting weaning at 7 months of age.

Do you have loose motions and malabsorption problem associated with gluten?
If I could know more about your history ,I may clarify more.

Hope I can help you further.
Regards,Dr.Maheshwari

Hi, I have coeliac disease and have been adhering to a gluten free diet for about a year now since I was diagnosed. I ve always had a problem with fatigue and had attributed it to the coeliac disease; however, now that I m on a gluten free diet I had thought that might alleviate it - it hasn t. I can sleep anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a night and always have the same lethargy, despite trying different sleeping patterns, drowning myself in coffee, having B12 injections , and doing awake things like getting out and about. Is there anything you could recommend to make me less sleepy all the time?

I have Epilepsy and Celiac Disease and it is very difficult to find gluten-free drugs that are generic (because of my co-pay/generic) that don t have gluten in them and when I do some places say that their distributing warehouse says it is N/A. What should I do, I have been calling around to pharmacies and finding out where they get certain drugs for my Epilepsy within a 30 to 40 mile around with not to good a results. What should I do ? I have tried YYYY@YYYY to them to get a certain drug in but yet no results.

I recently just switched to a gluten free diet despite testing negative for celiac disease because my intestinal issues were so severe I thought I could possibly have gluten sensitivity still. But yesterday when I had a BM, I noticed the tissue was light pink after wiping. In the past my internal hemoroids would be bright red blood. What could this be?
