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.

Have you taken any medication for IBS?

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.
