(P.s. for those in Australia--Rodney Sinclair is a really good one---recently recieved a huge grant to help build a hairloss research center (think it will be opening in 2011)). Also, Paradi Mirmirani at Kaiser Permanente in California should be added to the list (studied under Vera Price). Of course, these are just my opinions, but I hope others find them helpful!
Is there a specialist in San Diego, Ca?

Question Any luck finding dermotologist in South Florida? (Response to earlier post)

I just turned 52 last week and went through a bad divorce two years ago, and I think I've been stressing for the last 5 years. I started noticing some hair loss about 4 years ago in the front of my head, if I pulled my bangs back I could see my scalp. But I attributed to my stress and I've been in denial. I also have high blood pressure and have been taking medication for it for about 10 years. Currently taking Diovan. (Someone told me that some high blood pressure medication causes hair lost, I ask my regular Doctor but she said that the one I was taking does not) It seems that within the last 6 months, my thick wavvy hair, is now thin, not much body and when I run my fingers through my hair, I can feel that a third of my hair is gone. I'm no longer in denial, so now I'm freaking out. I've been reading different articles on line and came across something that said that if body lacks "iodine" that could case hair lost among other things, it suggested eating eggs, strawberries, seaweed and a number of other foods that contain iodine. I have not heard anyone on this site mention anything about this. I'm trying to relax and keep myself from stressing, but everytime I pass a mirror or run my fingers through my hair, it all comes back again. My parents who are now 86 and 81 both have thining hair, so I'm hoping it's not hereditary. I just want to get to the bottom of this and find out if its a dificiency, hereditary, stress or something else. I hope someone can give me some directions or advise. Thank you
I noticed you posted a similar request to mine. I'm also in the Boca/Ft. Lauderdale area. Did you ever get a referral?

Default Michigan Doctors?

Does anyone have a Michigan doctor that they can recommend? I live in the metro Detroit area. My hair loss has slowed but my scalp shows pretty well through the front of my hair. My grandmother had extremely thin hair and I don't want to be like that. I'm only 31. I would appreciate any help that I could get. THANKS!

Default Dr in Tampa Fl

Hi everyone,

I too am struggling with hair loss and my current doctors all think I'm crazy. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Tampa FL area who specializes in hair loss?

Thank you!

Hey, did you ever find anyone in CT? I have been seeing Dr. Paula Bevilacqua in Cheshire and am VERY disappointed. Any ideas?

» 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.
