Does vitamin d helps to restore grey hairs?

Vitamin D: Helps with a lot of things but not returning grey hair to dark. Your best option, in my opinion, is to keep your hair and yourself neat and clean and be a good person to yourself and others.

Is a very low vitamin d level a reason for hair thinning in a 57 yr. Old female who has just become post-menopausal?

Is a very low vitamin d level a reason for hair thinning in a 57 yr. Old female who has just become post-menopausal?

No.: Vitamin d is a hormone, not a vitamin. I recommend vitamin d3 at 2000 iu per day. But hair loss is less an issue, than hormonal changes. Current consensus suggest that women in menopause obtain cardiac benefits from being on estrogen till about sixty unless you have contraindications. Low estrogen can be the most important factor. ...Read more

Hair loss is extreme and just started the past few months. Was taking gilenya (fingolimod) for a year for ms. I am low in my vitamin d. Could this be serious?

Hair loss is extreme and just started the past few months. Was taking gilenya (fingolimod) for a year for ms. I am low in my vitamin d. Could this be serious?

Several issues: First, get your vitamin d into an appropriate range, especially by supplementing 5-10, 000 units daily, as higher levels decrease relapses, and MRI lesions. Secondly, Gilenya (fingolimod) does not cause hair loss, but Aubagio does. You may possess a co-morbidity, such as b-12 deficiency or thyroid issues, or even scalp problems. Should not go off your gilenya, (fingolimod) as you could have significant ms rebound. ...Read more
