When you talked about this in July, several people replied to you. Several asked about your medications. Several of the meds used to treat CD can cause hair loss in some people. We might have more suggestions if you tell us what meds you take.

If you couldn't find your other post, here it is:

Hi Hair loss can be contributed to many things premenapause (age of a person) ,health condition (if a person has lost a lot of weight as in malnutrition), or as Ides stated medication.You would have to be more specific in what kind of meds you are enquiring about. I have had some hair lost due to all three things but luckily it is getting thicker and growing in. lol gail
