hair loss and colitis

After being diagnosed with colitis, I have had no syptoms (symptoms) for 4 months and am not on any special medicine, although a GI specialist is currently evaluating the proper meds to prescribe. In the last month or 2 my hair has started to fall out as if I were taking chemo.  Huge amounts of hair is lost when combing or after shampooing.  Could this be related to colitis is some way?  I am really concerned.


This discussion is related to Pentasa and hair loss.

No, not to the colitis.  But medications, and other health problems can cause hair loss, you need to see your doctor.
