I am curious what other conditions have you been diagnosed with? I have had AU since I was 4 years old. I was just recently diagnosed also with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It is not autoimmune although it is genetic like Alopecia. It has sent me on a quest to find out what else may be going wrong in my body as it is disabling. I am becoming more and more ill. As hard as Alopecia is, it is no longer the worst medical issue I face. I need answers, and I feel that the AU could be a clue for me. I am looking for any other common medical conditions we may share. Thank you for your help!
Hello Zebra! For others, that's what many people with Ehlers-Danlos will call themselves. It is a connective tissue disorder, and yes, hair certainly has connective tissue. Have you found ehlers-danlos.com yet? I'm betting you have. What type do you have? Co-morbid with mast cell activation disorder? My hair journey has only been the last 2.5 years, and I too look at how hair loss and EDS are related.
