Re: I am experiencing hair loss.Help Someone

Well I am using Zenagen shampoo and it seems to be preventing any further loss. Let me ask you something- do you take any antacids? I was taking Zantac for the better part of my life and I just found out that a side effect of it is hair loss. Also too much Vitamin A can be a culprit. I had to switch multi vitamins. I have a receding hairline now, and began losing hair at 27. Both of my parents have full heads of hair. But I think when your body has to deal with the stress of having any type of illness, it first attacks your hair, to save the more important organs.

Hi, I've been experiencing diffuse hair shedding, most dramatic on the sides. You should have both your Ferritin and Iron Levels checked. A few other tests for hair loss: Hydroxy 25/Vit D, TSH (thyroid), Vit B, Lupus, Glucose.
