    I started taking biotin 5000 mg 1xday before surgery. Recommended by my hair stylist as the hair vitamin.

    I'm just curious Terry...did your nutritionist advise you to take 5,000mg of Biotin? I saw in another thread that someone else was taking 10,000mg a day and it makes we wonder how much is enough and how much might be too much? My nutritionist advised me to take 1,000mg a day, but the Biotin bottle advises to take three of those (so, 3,000mg) each day. I don't want to short myself! I am also taking Silica, which I read on the Internet is also helpful to prevent hair loss. The Silica bottle describes it as "The Natural Nutrient for Hair, Bones, and Nails". Those are 500mg, and I'm taking them twice a day, although the bottle recommends 3x's a day. Maybe I need to step up my nutrients!

    I lost hair and worried if it would stop. The loss slowed down and now
    it is getting thicker again. I take the Biotin as well. I started with a band
    then converted to the sleeve so the hair thinning has something to do
    with the weight loss and not the exact procedure.

    My hair started to fall out about 3 months post op. Have just seen a doctor about it and have had blood taken and am waiting for the results. Obviously something is lacking, just need to pinpoint what it is exactly. It really freaked me out when clumps of my hair fell out but it helps to know it's quite common and it does stop!

    That is one of my worst fears... besides feeling nauseated for a long time... and can I never eat carbs again? I am at the beginning research stages - 2 seminars scheduled on 6/26/13 and 7/1/13... hoping to find out answers --- at 212 at a5'2" and want to get to 120 - Can you loose too much weight with the sleeve? Any other concerns w/ the sleeve? Nutritional deficiencies?
