To star off I have had crohns since 16 (6 years ago) and been on Imuran the whole time
Over the years I have become concerned with my hair thinning and always thought it was the medicine, and when my doctor said no, I thought well then I MPB.
In 2011 I had surgery to remove infected areas of my intestines and I was off my medicine for ~6 months (before getting back on it at double the dose all the way to the present)
During 2011 I remember people saying "wow your hair looks great and shiny!" and I remember at the end of 2011 when I got back on the medicine people said "your hair looks different". 2011 was the only year I never stressed over my hair.
So today I was clearing out my old computer and saw these pictures:
September 2009 (on medicine) (sorry for poor quality bad camera back then) VIEW IMAGE
November 2011 (off medicine for 5 months) VIEW IMAGE
December 2011 VIEW IMAGE
July 2013 (current been on medicine for 1.5 years again) VIEW IMAGE
Now the question is, does it look better in 2011 (health wise, not style lol) than in 2009 and currently in 2013? I think it does I think its much thicker and better looking overall which leads me to believe my hair loss is due to medicine rather than MPB. Opinions?
