How long will THC stay in my hair if I smoked once in July on the 18th. It was my first time ever.

How long will THC stay in my hair if I smoked once in July on the 18th. It was my first time ever.

Curious question: Hair grows at a rate of about 1/2 inch a month, and thc that is deposited in the hair will stay in the zone that represents use while it was forming. Remove the hair to below the that level and it would not be found on hair analysis. However, most do not assess hair to detect it, they use urine.This can clear in a week or so if use was minimal. ...Read more

Prilosec10yrs+ Short seg Barrett's.HALO ablation2015.Barrett's gone.Prefer stop PPI's. Endoscopy July '16. Wait? H2 blockers enough? Combo approach?

Endoscopy: I would wait for July's endoscopic results before making any changes in your management. If there's no sign of Barrett's, your gastroenterologist may agree with avoiding more long-term ppi therapy in view of recent reports of adverse potential side effects. On the other hand long term ppi treatment does protect against malignant transformation. ...Read more

I am gone complete 18th  years of age. This july am suffering form a frequent hair loss.....

Depends on cause...: One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes.
