I have alopecia. I get steroid injections but hair growing back slow. I also have celiac. What can I do to help my hair grow back faster?

In brief: Alopecia from celiac

It can be made worse by poor absorption of nutrients if active inflammation is present in the gut from celiac disease. The alopecia often responds to strict avoidance of glutens in the diet. Good luck.
