Hair Loss Stop
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out.

Levothyroxine 50mvg 3 wks.only TSH thyroid tested 5.02. Lost 90% of hair. How long B4 hair loss stops. Please help!

I do think they might increase your Levo dose, but there's a chance you might benefit from T3 (liothyronine) hormone to provide symptomatic relief, especially with a TSH of 5.02. They need to rule out other causes of thyroid disease before treatment. ...Read more
I took colostrum for 1.5 months and began shedding hair. My scalp is very itchy now. I have stopped taking it from today. Will the hair loss stop and my hair regrow? I have heard that the igf-1 is the cause.
Probably.: I'm assuming you're talking about bovine colostrum. Any medication or supplement can cause temporary hair loss (technical name: telogen effluvium), and it nearly always grows back; but you'll have to give it some time. Insulin-like growth factors (igf) are probably not the mediators in such situations, but no one knows for sure. Biotin (a b vitamin) 5000 units/day may help to speed up regrowth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

As such, not using it will not result in discontinuation of hair loss &/or hair regrowth. Using tylenol and (any type) alcohol (including beer) together is potentially very harmful to the liver.
