smhair  I found out I have hep c last March. I tried treatment but had to stop due to low platlets,anemia,segs,ect. I've been on the transplant list since last Sept. I was wondering if anybody has a problem with hair loss?  I am.
Thanks,

Hello Dee and welcome to HealingWell.  
  Glad to hear that you made it to the transplant list.   It is not an easy task.  
 
about the hair loss.......my husband's hair thinned.  Not sure if it was the Hep C or not but when I first married him he had nice thick hair but the sicker he got the thinner his hair got.

Thank you for the reply. I too had alot of thick  curly hair,but lately its been falling out  and I have some bald spots. I try to cover it by moving my hair differently but its just horrible my hair is also limp.
Alittle more about me:
I have cirrhois,gallstones,varices,swelling my glucose has been dropping into the 40s,tired,cant sleep,Twitching in my face,I'm not jaundice instead i have broken capillaries{spider like veins}all over my body and dark red marks,My labs are all out wack.
I'm on  1-50mg blood pressur pill a day,2-lasix a day,prilosec,lactoloose,2-tbs. a day,milk thistle, and a vitamin.
I still work 4-12 hr shifts every week,but i'm getting really tired,its starting to get to me. I try to be as normal as possible but i am really slowing down. I wish I could keep up with my grandchildren but I cant. I pretty much watch them enjoy themselves, I take them places and just watch,It does put a smile on my face.
I have a strong will to live and do my best to take care of myself.
I think my family is in denial or just dont want to think about,but i can really use their help some times. I know if i asked my kids would be there  but ihave a hard time doing that. I m the one that does for everybody. Sometimes I wish they would come over and clean my house. My house is clean,but i cant do heavy lifting so my furniture doesnt get moved,This bothers me. I guess i'm alittle OCD.
Take care everybody,and thanks for listening or rather reading,lol

Don't loose hope, I suggest you to try generic xenical. One of my friend had a very good experience with it, she got it from dealgeneric.com after extensive research. You can also give it a try. I hope it works for you as well it did for her :)

Thanks

I noticed my mom's hair was really thin and baby fine.  She was always getting cuts, perms and dye jobs so I thought the beautician she was going to every Friday was the cause.

Unfortunately I dont think it is the hair dressers fault. I Dont get perms and I very rarely dye my hair.

Most of us have thinning hair as we get older.  Mine, which was once really thick, has become thin and limp.  Whether it is advancing age or hep C, I can't say.  I know that people on treatment experience hair loss.
