Can a very low vitamin d level be the reason my hair is thinning in a small area of 2 inches near the middle of the forehead hairline?
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.

Low estrogen can be the most important factor. ...Read more

Should not go off your gilenya, (fingolimod) as you could have significant ms rebound. ...Read more
