hair loss/IBS
Does IBS cause hair loss?  I've had IBS for about 1 year 1/2 and have been loosing a lot of hair for the past year.  I lost about 30 pounds quickly due to sudden diet change.  Is it due to my diet? weight loss? IBS? How can i find out what the exact problem is so I can fix it? i've had test done with a dermatoligist & they are all normal.

im not sure if IBS itself can cause that but maybe look into the medication your on. stress is known to cause hair loss also.
