Q: 

hair loss

A: From what I know and have read your hair falls out because you are notgetting enough protein. check with your nutritionist but you may needabout 60-70 grams of protein per day and if you are not keeping track, thatcould be the problem. The only supplement out there for hair loss isbiotin. You can buy it at vitamin shoppe or GNC, I think 300 mg. is therecommended dose. Hi...

I am only 1 month post op and havebeen taking the high dose Biotin and...


Q: 

Can Forteo cause thinning of hair or hair loss?

A: Hi Sallie:  Congrats; you''re almost finished with Forteo!    According to the various articles on Forteo, hair loss is not listed as a side effect.  I took Forteo for 2 years, and have had thinning hair, but mine began before I started Forteo.  I never figured out why my hair started thinning years ago, but was told many different things, like hormone loss, diet, aging etc.  Unfortunately some of us just have this problem as we age, but you could ask your Dr about it and see what he thinks.   I know what a pain this is and how frustrating it can be, but maybe your Dr can help you find something that...
Q: 

I''m of african american and I''m experience hair loss, I have bald spots in different area

A: You don''t mention how that diagnosis was specifically made - another differential (alternative, possible) diagnosis could be alopecia or alopecia areata.  Read up on it - it can occur spontaneously and it has no specific known cause (many theories).  Dermatologists usually diagnose it - so I would make sure that is not what is going on.  It is not life threatening or dangerous.  It does, however, cause anguish to patients when the hair loss on the scalp becomes multiple and significant.   There are coored powders you can match to your hair color that can mask the scalp bald spots - beauty supply stores have it.  Going bald is another option if you can ''make peace'' with it....
