Common causes include hypothyroidism & pcos, both associated with obesity. Neodipar and other medicines can cause hair loss as a side effect, as can iron deficiency anemia.

Hair: Yes and also from other metabolic disorders like thyroid disease. See your md and perhaps and endocrinologist to be sure it is not related to something other than diet.

Can certain medications deplete the body of important nutrients (such as iron, magnesium, zinc) and then induce hair loss because of that depletion?
Depends on the cause: Some causes of flatulence, such as swallowing air, is only gotten rid of by either changing how we eat to avoid swallowing air, or by passing it. However, I have had some success in recommending eating raw, fresh parsley as a means of reducing the flatulence. Parsley pills did not seem to be as effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No, but take vitamin: There is not a vitamin nor mineral that helps one lose weight, but a person on a weight-loss diet should take one daily over-the-counter "multi-vitamin & minerals", in case his diet is low on a vitamin.

The variety of foods should include carbohydrates (including perhaps 35g of simple carbs/sugar to get glycogen back into muscles), protein for building muscle, fruits, vegs. ...Read more
Not hormones: A man with a normal amount of testosterone will be hairy or smooth depending on his genetic background. It's the skin's ability to respond. Taking extra testosterone won't turn a smooth man hairy -- if it did, the steroid monsters at the gym would all grow extra body hair, and by and large they do not. Smooth or hairy, I hope you like who you are -- or shave / "manscape" what you don't want. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
