View Full Version : Can't Find the Right Help

02-19-2009, 04:26 AM
After going through a difficult (short) marriage, the stress induced during that time has precipitated hair loss. No matter what I have tried with my local doctors advice, it doesn't do any good. I would like to communicate with someone that can guide me to the right approach. I am 39 years old, have borne one son, reasonably healthy, non smoker, not taking contraceptives. My hair appears to be very weak and brittle, it falls out everyday when I comb it. I live in Cairo so getting expert advice is not easy. I would like to know the first steps to take so I can get an accurate diagnosis of the problem and hopefully stop the loss before it's too late. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thankyou, Hanna.

Have you had any blood work done?

I had a blood test 3 days ago, the only unusual readings were for Eosinophils which recorded 12% (normal is 1-4%) and testosterone which was 2.4 pg/ml (normal 0.04 - 3.9).
