Outside of possible thyroid issues, I would suggest starting with a quality multi-vitamin from a health food store or online. Diabetics require a much higher dose of vitamins than the average person. I use Vitacost. Personally, I take Natrol My Multi. They are very inexpensive and do a good job. Other products I take that help with hair are B-complex (Twin Lab B-100), biotin (5000 mcg) and straight vitamin A (dry - 10,000 IU). You may want to do a search on supplements for hair loss. You can then read up on each vitamin/herb to see if it's right for you. I've been taking vitamins for the past 12 years and attribute my overall good health to them:) I rarely get sick!
Im insulin dependent & in order to keep BOTH my weight & sugar levels under control i basically live off a chicken breast & small garden salad daily, oo & a Babybel cheese as a snack. I know eatimg a diet such as this i'm probably deficient in many vitamins & minerals. I used 2 take multi vitamins & few other supplements but stopped taking them after reading a number of studies about the dangers of supplementation. Im not sure what to do for the best. I want to be healthy but i dont want to change my diet, apart from being impossible due to my situation, i also dont want to increase carbs as i will gain weight immediately. Im also wheat intolerant so am restricted so much thats its just easier to stay the way i am. So should i be taking a dietry supplemnt or are they as dangerous as some studies would lead one to believe. If that is in fact the case why do medical professionals prescribe such things so free & easily. Oooo such a quandry :D
my internet has been out for 7 days straight and I see I got 3 wonderful answers!
thank you soo much, ^^
I'll check my doctor about the thyroid shortly. My mom was diagnosed as hypo (or is it hyper?) thyroid. maybe I should be wary about it.
and now for the hairloss things:
- I'll make sure if I use a sulphate free product. before, I use Selsun Blue (High contain of sulphate because it is used to treat dandruff- My hair got dandruff problem when I was in junior highschool, but it's not as severe now, however, I still use this product-)
-I'll really try the hairmask suggested up there by thanksalotpancreas
-I'll ask my doctor about the vitamin supplement first ^^
anyone have another suggestion for my question?
btw, if I must use sulphate-free shampoo, wouldn't my hair got the dandruff problem again? what should I do?
