Can low stomach acid cause hair thinning or even loss? How do I know if I have low or excess stomach acid?because I feel like I have the symptoms!

In brief: No

Low or High are "useless terms" and hair loss is in no way connected with either! Symptoms of so called "hyperacidity (eg heartburn, stomach pain) are NOT due to "the amount" of acid but the GI tracts "sensitivity" towards it! Speak with your Primary Care Provider about your symptoms! Hope this helps! DR Z
