Did they check iron and thyroid levels? Do you feel tired?
She said that the Iron study and Thyroid is normal.
I have heart disease and I feel tired most of the time from that. I definitely feel depressed because of the hair loss! I used to have thick hair as a child and during the past 10 years I've already lost a lot of hair and now I am loosing so much more!
Your testosterone levels are low. You should consult an endocrinologist or a trichologist and use some testosterone patches. Also get telogen effluvium ruled out. The growth cycle of hair is in two phases, anagen or growth phase and telogen or resting phase. During telogen, the resting hair remains in the follicle until it is pushed out by growth of a new anagen hair. When hair enter the telogen phase, if it remains in this phase, it causes telogen effluvium. In telogen effluvium, a large number of hair enter telogen at one time.
It appears as a diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp. There is never complete loss of hair but the hair can be noticeably thin in severe cases.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Hmm, I would steer away from medication for now until you get a confirmed diagnosis and then we can all help you from there - let us know and best of luck
.I am not a doctor yet I have read about telogen effluvium. It is a phenomenon that occurs after pregnancy, major surgery, drastic weight loss or extreme stress in which you loss great amount of hair every day usually when shampooing or brushing. Antidepressant, beta-blockers can also cause hair loss. To avoid great hair loss you can go to your doctor if you think it is side effect of your medication or if due to stress try to relax.
Anti depressants cause hair loss??? Do you know if this is any specific kind of anti depressant?
Do you know if anti depressants provoke the process?
In my experience: medication definitely start the hair loss process and it can take over 6 months for it to work out of your system!
