    Default Hair loss!!! What you can do!

    I found that hair loss is not from a lack of protien. It is from a lack of Silica! You find silica in whole grains. Since we don't eat them we need to replace them. You can find dietary supplements at health food stores. This will also help your skin nails and bones!
    Since I have started taking this my hair does not fall out as long as I dont miss taking it! I went on vacation and forgot it and in 2 days my hair was falling out again!

    Biotin - just bought a bottle for my up coming surgery. It's a B vitamin complex. Numerous benefits. One is hair & the other is a blood sugar stabilization effect. Like intrinsic factor, biotin is not manufactured well without a fully functioning stomach. Also, high Ph from taking antiacids will also limit the B vitamins. We need these to prevent hair loss and anemia - among other things. If you are low on energy get some!!

    My nutritionist recommended Hair, Skin and Nails supplement in addition to Biotin. I just purchased both yesterday at Walgreens. I bought the Nature's Bounty brand of the Hair, Skin and Nails

    I picked up the store brand of Biotin. I hope it works because my hair is thinning quickly!

    Can you take these pills after having your sleeve? And if you have to wait to take pills, how long must you wait?

    I've been taking 1,000 mg of silica, and 2,000 mcg of biotin every day since a month before my surgery. My hair still started thinning at 4 months. Does anyone have any real guidance from a nutritionist on how much we should be taking, or how much would be too much?

    You are going to have some hair loss because your body is in shock! If you don't get enough protein, silica and biotin you would have a whole lot more hear loss!
    I am taking 5mg of biotin and 6mg of Silica twice a day. It also has vitamin D3, zinc gluconate, and boron citrate. It is called Silicadrops Healthy bones, skin, hair and nails by Life-Flo.
    I did not start losing my hair until four months out. I was only told to keep my protein up not about the rest. I did not start taking it til after four months. If I miss for a few days I can tell!
    You look great!!!
