i have been losing hair for about 7 years now. i think it has to do with my ulcerative colitis. i started to take biotin and a multi vitamin. my hair is white flakes, itchy but im thinking my hair might be growing back. could this happen? when i was pregnant my hair grew back then after nursing my baby it fell out again. i have seen several doctors and they all say it’s hereditary.
Hair loss in women can be difficult to manage, because there are often many factors involved that could cause the loss (including hereditary factors). Have you had any blood tests done to see if there is any other underlying medical conditions? There is a partial list of those tests here.
The stress from ulcerative colitis could cause hair loss in women who have a hereditary predisposition for hair loss, but there are doctors who specialize in this (I’m not sure if you went to a GP or a UC specialist) that would know more about this than I do. If the hair loss is stress related, it could take up to a year to regrow. The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America site can point you to a specialist that will hopefully be of more help.
