Chromium Problem

Hey T-Men. I have experienced good results using chromium pic. for fat loss, however, it causes my hair to start falling out. I was wondering if there was anything I could use along with chromium to prevent that side effect? Anyone else experience this?

I don’t think the chromium picolinate could have caused your hair loss. It can cause
renal impairment and rhabdomyolysis, but
if it leads to hair loss then to my knowledge
that is new.

Most likely it is either that you would have
happened to have started losing hair at that
time anyway, or alternately, something else
while dieting caused it. For example, perhaps
your T levels increased from dietary or
exercise change.
