Diet (Definition)

refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

. Can I heal alopecia areata any way like diet?

. Can I heal alopecia areata any way like diet?

No evidence: Alopecia areata can heal without any treatment. It is is caused by a killer immune cell (either natural killer or t cell) attack on the hair follicle. One of the genes that increases risk of attack is expressed abnormally in the hair follicle cells and causes homing of the natural killers to the hair follicle to initiate attack. Dietary factors could be involved in turning this gene on. ...Read more

Can i heal alopecia areata any way like with a certain diet?

Alopecia areata: Aa is a hair disease caused by immune system attack of the hair follicle. It is usually treated by reducing inflammation in the area with topical medicines or injections. It can also go away on its own. Don't think a specific diet will likely change it. ...Read more

I have suffering seborrheic alopecia  for 6 years. I am a 21 year old man from China.I tried balanced diet but it did not work. Can you help me ?

Hmm: Consider seeing your doctor for other causes of alopecia. If it is seborrhea, Selsun, Nizoral (ketoconazole) may help, but with the alopecia you may need topical Minoxidil, Propecia or other medical procedures. Good luck ...Read more

If you have celiac, is going gluten free good enough? Or should you go all grain free? And will GF diet help with alopecia areata?

If you have celiac, is going gluten free good enough? Or should you go all grain free? And will GF diet help with alopecia areata?

Not specifically: You need to spend more time learning about the gluten free life.Many "old world" grains do not contain gluten and including them in your diet would not aggravate your condition.There are some potential items that can mimic the gluten effect and specific testing is available through specialty labs. Artificial colors, like red #40 can aggravate even those without gluten sensitivity.Read labels. ...Read more

What should I remove and add on my diet in order to make my hair grow back faster after having bald spots from Alopecia Areata?

What should I remove and add on my diet in order to make my hair grow back faster after having bald spots from Alopecia Areata?

Wishful thinking: I don't believe there is any diet or supplement which would help your hair loss. Consult a dermatologist to see if there is something he can do to restore your hair loss and perhaps even finding the cause for it. ...Read more

I have alopecia and celiac disease. Is it likely that my hair will come back if I cut gluten out of my diet and eat mostly meat, veggies, and fruit?

I have alopecia and celiac disease. Is it likely that my hair will come back if I cut gluten out of my diet and eat mostly meat, veggies, and fruit?

Possibly: Alopecia and Celiac and two autoimmune diseases. Avoidance of gluten is essential with celiac because ingestion of gluten will increase your risk for gastric cancers. Although unlikely, it is possible that once your immune systems calms with avoidance of gluten your alopecia will improve ...Read more

Can I have androgenetic alopecia in mid-20s even if my blood work is normal, eat healthy diet, exercise, etc. and no family history?

Can I have androgenetic alopecia in mid-20s even if my blood work is normal, eat healthy diet, exercise, etc. and no family history?

Not if you're female: Your notes show you as a 26 year old female. Diet has no bearing here. If you're having normal periods and don't have hair where usually only men have it, then I'd be very surprised if your hair loss is androgen-type. If you're actually a man, of course you can start having baldness in your 20's especially if you're naturally blessed with a lot of body hair. Your Dr. can discuss treatment. ...Read more

I am healthy BMI but have PCOS (no cysts) and other autoimmune issues (alopecia universalis, psoriasis). Are inflammatory/diet factors possible?

I am healthy BMI but have PCOS  (no cysts) and other autoimmune issues (alopecia universalis, psoriasis). Are inflammatory/diet factors possible?

Probably now: Alopecia universalis is well-characterized as an autoimmune disease. I have an affected colleague who is an athlete and loves being hair-free. Psoriasis is a common illness with immune mechanisms while PCOS is almost certainly not immune. Diet isn't the key. Going you can and will stay physically fit -- aerobic exercise may help a great deal with your genetic heritage. ...Read more
