Is it normal to have hair loss with celiac disease? My granddaughter was diagnosed with it and she has lost all her hair.

Welcome to the forum, jimmy.

It is possible to have hair loss with celiac, but it could be another problem. Since we're just patients, it would be wise to ask the doctor.

Celiac causes malnutrition because it impairs absorption of nutrients from foods. Vitamin B12 deficiency is common in Celiacs. Consider supplementing Vitamin B12 for this issue...also add Biotin (good for hair).
