Now my concerns are the hair on head. For the past say... year, the hair right on the top crown of head has been thinning. And my family has been noticing.
Yes, there are male pattern baldness that runs in both my father's and mother's side. However, my dad, being one of the exceptions still has 3/4 of his hair...he's in his 50s. And usually, male pattern baldness in my family runs from the temple (front) and reseeds backwards.
I have no doubt that there are many factors (many of them prob genetics)...but here's the story:
My 30 yr old cousin (female) had been experiencing crazy hair loss and was due to Stress from work. It was pretty spotty. Being from an asian family, my uncle started to prepare chinese herbal medicine for her to ingest. She started growing it back. And plus, she's been going to her doctor to get NEEDLE injections (dont know what) into her scalp in order for her to maintain these results.
Thing is, I've complained to my mom that PERHAPS (not due to stress), that the herbal medicine would work for me as well. She promptly asked my uncle (who is now overseas) about the ingredients. Check this: the first thing he said was TO STOP TAKING ALL THOSE SUPPLEMENTS. WTF? He told my mom that had friends that used to train and would all these "vitamins" (not quite sure what specifically) and they were bald by 30. Given that my uncle knows jack shit about bodybuilding/ supplementation and such, I can only assume that the "supplements" he was referring to were related to anything like AAS, anabolics, etc.
My mom is freaking out and making see my family doctor and to tell me to bring ALL my supplements for his to see. Then he'll provide a professional opinion as to if I need to see a specialist.
I'm pretty sure NONE of the supplements i'm taking above has ANY correlation with Advance Hair Loss...
My question is: Has anyone experienced hair thinning, loss from using supplements? and which one specifically. I would like to know your experiences...and if they are related to any that I am currently taking. And your stories are also much appreciated in this thread.
Thanks for taking to read my long ass post....
