I have to follow a low fat diet due to acute pancreatitis which happened in August this year and I also have an underactive thyroid for which take thyroxin and B12 injections every 3 months. Recently my hair has been thinning more and more over the last 3 months to the point now my parting is very wide and looks almost bald in parts (it has been getting thinner prior to my attack of pancreatitis but now it is much worse). My doctor took another blood test on Thursday and he rang me Friday dinner time to say I have to take 210mg iron tablets 3x a day. Can anyone advise what else I would be able to take to help with my hair loss? I am getting so frightened now when I go to wash my hair in case I end up with nothing left, I only wash my hair once a week! Someone did mention Nordic supplements but not sure if these are any good or even if I can take them with my medication I am on. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
