Default Vitamin D

Has anyone heard of low vitamin D causing hair loss? Last March my doctor suggested I take Vitamin D, not for my hair loss, but along with Calcium to better absorb the Calcium.

I started taking it then and recently I've noticed I am shedding less.

Hi Dara, I was told the same thing. I get my vitamin D just from a mulivitamin, but I was told to take it with Tums - for the calcium - they help each other. Good luck!

Klf,

I am taking a total of 800 units along with my calcium. The next time I buy Calcium I will buy the kind that has the Vitamin D combined with it.

I've been reading up on Vitamin D too and some are taking much more.

I wonder if I could have a Vitamin D deficiency. For years I was on MTX for my arthritis. MTX made me more susceptible to the sun and I had trouble with getting sunburned even with lots of sunscreen on. So I have avoided the sun and really cover up when going outside.

Dara

Yeah vitamin D is awesome. I take it in the winter time anyways for my mood because it gets so cloudy. I know it helps with that. But i dunno about using it to fight hairloss.

Vitamin D helps regulate calcium metabolism in the body. Calcium, phosphorus and other minerals make up your bones. Vitamin D is very important for children’s growth, but has never been proven to influence hair loss. Several studies have been conducted, and they all have found no relationship between hair loss and vitamin D.

It has been suggested that an optimal concentration of vitamin D is necessary to delay the aging phenomena, including hair loss. A cross sectional study of 296 healthy men was done to determine the association, if any, between male pattern baldness and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. Based on this study, the extent and severity of male pattern baldness does not appear to be associated with serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels . Additional studies in subjects with age-related or senescent hair thinning as well as in women with female pattern hair loss could be considered to see if there is an association of hair loss with serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels.

» Forum Vs. Network ?
What Is The Difference Between The Network and The Forum? The "Network" is a social network much like facebook and myspace, only it's just for women with hair loss. A forum is more of a bulletin board to post a question or story for others to read and to receive responses. It's easy and direct. I am hoping that the forum will be easy and inviting for those women who are uninterested or find it difficult to do the social network thing.
