greetings to everyone. I have so many questions so will limit to a few. if I do not have miniaturization, does that mean I do not have androgenetic alopecia? I am loosing hair for almost 2 years now. I have long hair and new ones came in this year but now I am also loosing short hairs too. Have had so many test, blood work, cat scans etc. all normal except very high dhea but dheas is normal. Also, I started taking prilosec just prior to hair loss. Thought it was from that so stopped. Hair loss continued so started up aain with prilosec. Hair loss continued, and after stopping and starting the meds, I started Dec. 1 with cimitidine/tagamet as i thought it would help with the hair loss. But since mid march, hair loss is increasing. Doubled my cimitidine dose Feb & March. Now hair loss is more so just the meds 5 days ago. my hair loss has never completely stopped in the 2 years since it started. Just slowed down at certain times. best months where Jen., and Feb. Same with last year.Then in May of both years, huge hair loss. I don' know what to make of it. Is it the dhea? is it the meds/ Maybe i don't stay off them long enough to make sure. I have been to 3 Derm., and will now see my third Endo. No one has helped. I will be 61 in 1 week so maybe estrogen? But I went through 6 years of post menapause with no hair loss. Can it start anytime from low estrogen. Sorry to rant on and on. I am so miserable and feel like i'm running in circles, leaving my hair behind me. Any help is so appreciated. Has anyone else here had hair loss from acid reducer meds?
