Sounds like you are motivated and doing the right things!

Have you been officially diagnosed with TE? Are you iron deficient? When you lost your 40 lbs were you crash dieting (did the weight come off too fast or did you eliminate too many carbs)?

Sometimes hair loss can be brought on by more serious underlying problems, specifically endocrine, like thyroid and adrenal disorders. These conditions can also effect your weight. If the problem with your hair came on suddenly, I suggest that you see an endocrinologist and rule out other problems.

My derm did a quick and random diag, and i just saw my internist yesterday and took the blood tests, so Ill know more friday. I have had a bad diet, low protein, low iron rich foods, and general crash diets so it very well could be that.

He did the thyroid and cbc and all that so ill know more soon - Its HORRIBLE sitting and waiting and doing nothing. I hear TE can go for as little as a month to up to 6 MONTHS! EEK!
