I am a 49 year old woman, with high liver test the last few times I been in to the doctor, I had my gallbladder removed 2 1/2
years ago. I been pain under my right rib cage, some really sharp. My daughter and I have notice my hair seems to be falling out alot. My thyroid test are all normal per my doctor.
I started collecting my hair from my hair brush, I have gather a large sandwich bag since Monday, and hair fall out during the day and in my bed at night. There is no male or female baldness in my family history. I am concern and I plan to gather the hair till Sunday and make an appointment next week. But I am really concern and I have not had any new medication changes in
three years. Could this be cause by my liver, or is thyriod the
only gland that promotes hair loss.
I feel for you, every day I take a shower, my drain is literally clogged by all the hair- I have actually quit washing my hair everyday and combing it as often! I do have a hypothyroid and I take Levoxyl for it, but the hair loss continued, even when my thyroid profiles were coming back normal. After my husband became very sick, he found out he had contacted Hepatitis C through receiving a blood transfusion, in 1989. I was tested and also, even though the risk is relatively small through sexual contact, I also have HCV, along with many people who do not know how they became infected. I found out that sometimes you have to ask specifically to be tested for Hep C, because we were both tested before we were married in 1996, we had the test for Hep B and HIV, but they did not do a HCV test, because it wasn't tested for back then! I am no doctor, just a suggestion! Good Luck, and as a woman, I am only 34, I feel for you- at this rate I will be bald before I turn 40!
