Interesting hair loss observation



Recommended Posts

I’m just about 2 years post op VSG. I lost a fair amount of hair and definitely had to cover my head on sunny days the last couple years to avoid sun burning my scalp. I was just vacationing on Nantucket last week and had wonderful sunny weather. I forgot a hat! I got a little pink on my cheeks, arms and shoulders (despite using sunscreen) but had no burn on my scalp! My hair has finally filled back in :)

Go buy some Biotin with 10,000 mcg. It does helped to grow your hair whenever you had experienced with Hair loss

My nutritionist told us not to take too much Biotin because it doesn't really help with Hair loss and it can interfere with noticing other Vitamin deficiencies.

Too much Biotin can also falsely elevate liver values for bloodwork. I agree with your NUT, it’s very overrated and does not do much for Hair loss. hair loss is followed in periods of extreme stress or changes to the body. It will come back.

My Vitamin levels are all great, and I take them as prescribed. My point was that at 2 years PO my hair has come back! Just trying to give some hope to those pre op or early in their post op period.

Wow I did not know this. I have liver disease and the numbers are almost down to normal since my surgery. I have been taking biotin, though, and I hope that doesn't cause a problem. I guess I'll stop. It's already in my Multivitamin anyway.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
