It’s a story that resonates with thousands of Irish people across the world, from the families of those whose hair fell out to the families and friends of those who are battling the disease.
But it also touches on some controversial subjects such as whether or not kerastases are a disease, how long the disease can be controlled, and how people who are suffering from the disease should be encouraged to pursue treatment.
Key points:Kerastase is a genetic disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the hair follicles.
It causes severe hair loss and can lead to skin infections and infections of the scalp.
It is estimated that as many as 10 per cent of people have the condition and the number of affected is estimated to be up to 1.5 million people in Ireland.
The family of Shannon McEntee was one of those affected by the disease, and her story has been chronicled in the latest issue of Irish Independent magazine, which is available here.
“I had a bit of hair loss,” Ms McEnteres said.
“And I was trying to get my hair back but I couldnt because of the disease.”
Kerostase is diagnosed when the immune system in the hair-producing follicles attacks the skin.
“When the immune response starts it kills off the follicles and it stops the hair from growing,” Ms McFeeres said of the treatment.
“But if the immune reaction continues then the follicle and the keratin are very damaged.”
Kersatin is the protein that makes up the kerastatic protein.
It is made up of three fatty acids and is the key component in the kerostatic system.
Kersas can be the cause of hair and skin infections, including psoriasis and keratitis.
“It’s the most common cause of kerastasis and the majority of people who have it don’t have any problems with their skin,” Ms McKeeres added.
“So you just don’t need to worry about the hair loss.”
Ms McFeere also told the Irish Independent she was one in five women who have had her hair cut short because of her condition.
“In my case it started because I was having trouble with my hair and my hair got very short,” she said.”[I was] going to get a cut at the end of the year and I got a cut the same year because I had to get treatment.”
She said her hair had grown back a year later but it was still a struggle.
Ms McFees hair was cut in a ceremony, and the whole family went to a hair salon to give their blessings.
“My hair was done in a little ceremony where the family prayed to God to get me back to normal,” she explained.
“We had the blessing and it was all thanks to the miracle of the miracle hair.”
“There are no real treatments for kerastas but you can do some things like getting a keratocyte, or a keratinocyte and a kerase, and that can help you fight off the disease and hopefully stop the infection.”
In the UK, the National Health Service (NHS) provides kerastosis treatment to patients from around the world.
However, the NHS does not offer kerastatosis treatment in Ireland, and patients with the condition can still be refused treatment by the medical system.
While it is not a cure, the treatment is often used to help patients with other autoimmune diseases, such as psorias and rheumatoid arthritis, and is an effective alternative to chemotherapy.
Kerase is not limited to people with the disease in Ireland but can be experienced by people with other conditions.
“The most common type of keratosis is caused by kerastatin, but there are many different types of keras, which can cause different types and degrees of hair losses,” Ms McMeeres explained.
While treatments for other conditions such as arthritis can be effective for the disease-affected person, some people with kerastaases have had problems with the immune systems, such a kerotibial band syndrome.
“That’s a condition where the immune responses in the body attack the kerotubal band which is a type of skin that covers the hair,” Ms McGreeves said.
This condition can also be associated with psoriosa, an autoimmune disease that affects the lining and hair follicle of the skin, leading to hair loss.
“This is a condition that is very common, it is caused in about 5 to 7 per cent or less of people,” Ms MacDonnell said.
“So it can be quite common in some people, but it can also happen in people who don’t go through a period of time with psoriatic arthritis.”
“If someone has psoriative arthritis, it can cause severe hair losses, but if they’re not
