can anyone who has had bloodwork done give me a heads up on what i need to make sure they check?
thanks for your help!
If the shedding happens only in the summer. It may be because your follicles are synchronized to be in the telogen phase at the same time, more than 10% probably due to telogen effovium you had in the past.
Hormone levels won't tell you anything. If you are not shedding minituarized hairs then you should get your thyroid checked.
