    It is my understanding the the Co-Q10 is actually good in helping control High cholesterol. I was told to drop the suppliments for now as well. Can't understand why there are so many variations re: Dr.s orders.

    Can someone please tell me how to come about a Weight Goal?

    CoQ10 is recommended by some if you are on a statin (anti-cholesterol drug). I found it made me a bit 'speedy' which makes me cautious about it.
    I've been recommended Colloidal Silica for hair and nails. We'll see. I do think the protein is the main thing.

    Biotin will help prevent hair loss, which is common with WLS patients and CQ10 prevents heart attacks. I take both.

    Biotin will help prevent hair loss in SOME folks. Not all. Just FYI...

    I don't get the high protein/less hair loss connection? I barely ate protein before surgery and had a full head of hair. So why now?

    I have been taking Biotin since before surgery, I'm not sure if it has helped because I still have had a ton of hair loss, but I just started taking fish oil again, I haven't noticed any "more" hair loss...just the same, but it is great for dry skin, (my daughter had exzema & it seemed to help her drastically) and of course it helps w my mood swings during PMS.

    Jimmi -- there are so many variations re: dr's orders because the evidence is not all in yet. We have some understanding of the biochemical nature of some of the supplements without a clear understanding of how they act in the body. More research is needed and unless a pharmaceutical company is able to patent and 'own' the substance, which they try to do, there is not the millions for research and profit that there is with individual drugs. That's my understanding.

    Hey, Terrie...keep taking it...its usually at about month FOUR that the hairloss begins IF it is going to happen. Mine didn't fall out...it just stopped growing! Consequently, old, dead hair...horrible! But, it is starting to grow a little teenie weenie bit at month 14!!
