In brief: Hair Shedding

With ckd you most likely have a chronic telogen effluvium.Telogen effluvium is a form of nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset.
A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists. Telogen effluvium is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications.Treatment is with B12 injections once a month.
