116879_tn?1266519849 Any recommendations of any special <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> to take for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss? Also maybe something during AF? AF is very painful and heavy this time.
Avatar_f_tn I'm losing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> too. Not in clumps but I clog the drain once a week from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. And all my friends said their hair was so full and healthy during pregnancy and after lost some. I get a ball of hair during evey wash and its not normal for me also my scalp itches like crazy and I don't have bugs lol o had my husband check lol!
Avatar_n_tn You might try taking (believe it or not) prenatal vitamins at least 4 hours after your thyroid meds. They have essential <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> in them that protect somehow against <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. This is something I experienced being low thyroid, but as my TSH levels are getting better, my hair has almost stopped coming out. Just a suggestion and I would ask your doctor what he thinks, first. Hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn I loose a lot of hair every time I wash my hair, I still do not see any physical signs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss on my head, that is when one looks in the mirror and by feeling. I have been loosing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> for many years now. What should I do ? I do dye my hair, and use products like hair Gel, hair spray etc, on a daily basis. I am having headaches often, and have been allergic to different foods, like dairy products, shell sseafood & coloring added to foods, Red-40 & Yellow, since December of '98.
Avatar_n_tn Wow, that was quick, thanks for your comment!!! No i'm not taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> but i'm glad i'm not the only one this is happening to! I have heard this is normal but I just wanted to double check with all of you! Thanks, have a great weekend!

Avatar_n_tn I have stopped shampooing every day and just water rinse my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> every other day, but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss continues. Has anyone had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss while on Metformin? Is there a connection between Metformin and hair loss?

1123420_tn?1350564758 This is for the ladies who have had/have excessive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss after pregnancy. Its so frustrating and overwhelms me at times, and DB jokes that I'm gonna be balled soon :( I'm not exaggerating, like I am seriously losing soo much hair, I have handfuls of it when I get out of the shower and rub mouse in my hair, its sickening. If I toss my hair out of the way I lose a bundle of hair no joke. I'm really upset about this and want it to end. I am 6 months PP...
Avatar_n_tn A doctor once did tell me that's a symptom for poorly taking of my diabetes he advise that I start taking prenatal vitamins he said they will help stop the hair loss .

I have been off topamax for 3-1/2 months and am still experiencing the hair loss.
Avatar_n_tn Thanks for the info on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. I have been loosing my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> from another drug. Would you mind if I decide to buy the arbonne stuff can I use you #?
Avatar_f_tn I did start taking Evening Primrose Oil which is suppose to be good for thyroid hair loss problems as per Mary Shumow, she says she takes it and is the expert on About.com for thyroid issues. She had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss problems and found this worked for her. It definetly worked for me, OR I am just in a waxing and waning period right now and everything is rather dormant. I take one 1.35mg tablet a day of the Primrose Oil and am NOT losing any hair now.
Avatar_f_tn If you are suffering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss, you should consult with your doctor.

Avatar_f_tn Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease which can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. See a dermatologist. A clinical examination is very important for correct diagnosis and management. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar_m_tn Ive been taking similac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> but onnly the soft gels which have only vitamin e in them not knowing I was supposed to take the white tablets also that had everything else in it.

An is my baby going to be alright ? I need other options for vitamin d an calcium other than milk.
Avatar_n_tn A lot of thyroid patients have suffered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss or thinning. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss or thinning is just one of the many thyroid symptoms. Once you are on the right level for you to feel your best hair loss will subside and grow back. Some have found certain shampoos help but I never had this problem so never paid attention to the brands. Perhaps others will come along with that info. Good Luck.
Avatar_n_tn Are you guys still taking your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span>? I did lose a little of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> also. Or I should say a lot but just for a little amount of time.
219522_tn?1251764229 I'm seeing my endo on Wednesday, so if he doesn't have any other ideas what might be causing it, will see if he thinks switching to Levoxyl might help. What's to lose? BARLEYPOP, I would love the address for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss website. Both my 91-yr-old mother and 60-yr-old sister have thick, thick hair. This thin thing is really beginning to get to me. Thank goodness my hair is naturally curly so I can camouflage the thinness for the most part.
Avatar_n_tn There are vitamins that are just for your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>, nails and skin. or maybe a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> because they help with that as well. I'm sorry I can't give you anymore insite however give those a try. it won't hurt.
Avatar_m_tn I had lost all of my side-swept bangs that were extremely thick and my most of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss was around the front of my face so my forehead was getting bigger and bigger and the sides of my hair line had receded so badly that I started wearing what I thought was cute little hair sashes and hats. I found myself the center of a couple of bad jokes, though and so then became rather self-councious.
Avatar_f_tn There is nothing in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> that encourage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> growth. That's a myth. This is a hormonal thing that differs from woman to woman in pregnancy. Just like some people are sicker than others.
Avatar_n_tn Initally years back, I was on Nadalol, which caused <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> thinning for months before I fifgured it out and had my Dr switch me to Kerlone. I've been fine on Kerlone for years. Now that I cant take Kerlone anymore, and am having the same hair loss issues from the nadalol, I have decided I'm stopping taking these drugs altogether and weening off. Down to 1/8 pill of betaxolol / day.
504000_tn?1242504393 However, a lot of the hair loss has to do with your hormone levels and thyroid. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> grew back when I started taking Kelp (iodine) supplements and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> and I grew a ton of hair when I did that. Iodine helps to maintain a balance in your thyroid. I know this is a common thing after pregnancy but you can reduce the ammount of hair that you shed by taking supplements.
Avatar_f_tn Ive tried all types of conditioning and even started taking my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prenatal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamins</span> again, but nothing is working. So i called my doctor and NOW he tells me that this has the same side effects as the shot!! Okay the shot made my hair come out so WHY IN THE HECK would i want this??!!! SMH!! Best thing to do, GET IT REMOVED ASAP!!
