Ughhhh.  I have been searching for answers in these message boards and no one replies or knows anything about hairloss & an effective remedy.  I'm on Remicade now and since i've started this med, my hair is so thin and keeps falling out in large amounts.  HELP!!

I was on Remicade for my Cronhs and my hair was so thin and falling off, my pillow was full of hair, now I cant take remicade because of a severe reaction so my hair now his thick, stoping remicade was a great thing for me, but people react differently...

Are you taking methotrexate or had your thyroid checked.   My sister was on remicade and methotrecate.   Says methotrexate causes hair loss.  Also thyroid issues.  Hope this helps

Hi Maurene.
I realize that you are fairly new here.
Please note that this thread is over 3 years old and these members may no longer be active.

I read your journal entry and I'm sorry for your recent dx.
It's definitely a new learning curve for you.

Gastroparesis may have a connection to diabetes, hypothyroidism or
adrenal fatigue (which is itself linked to impaired thyroid function).
Anything that relates to you?
Just a thought.

Best wishes.
