Just got back from seeing the doc about my hair loss and he had a look at my scalp told me im not going bald!! (phew!) and told me its more than likely down to a hormonal imbalance but is giving me a blood test to check my thryroid, salt levels and for amnemia.

Being a hormonal imbalance would make sense as LT does mess with our totm doesnt it.

I mentioned that i felt silly going to see the doc about hair loss but he told me they see it alot and not to stress.

So girls & guys if you are worried about your hair loss (if you are experiencing it) then see the doc.

He told me if the blood test come back normal then it will sort itself out but will just take time.

Just thought i'd post this try to reassure some of yous :)

Thank you so much for this post. I have been really worried about my hair as it seems to come out in big lumps. Glad you went to the docs and feel happier now x x x x

Are you refeeding or still on LT? I know you can lose a bit while on LT but it happened to me quite a bit a couple of months after re-feed. Its something to do with your hair folicles "going to sleep" while on ketosis so when you come out of it you lose all the hair you should have lost. It does grow back though.

Still a good idea to have a bloods test though as thyroid trouble can cause hair loss,... speaking from experience lol

hope it all goes well for you hun x

Glad you took a trip to the docs, hopefully it will put your mind at ease. Worrying isn't good for hair loss either so try and relax and hope this is going to improve for you very soon xx
