Major hair loss and Biotin

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hi.  i have been nursing dd for almost 5 yrs - she has some special needs, and what i thought would be a much shorter experience has become an extended one!  at any rate, i lost hair in the normal sense post-partum, then things seemed to level off.  well, in the last two years or so, i have lost a HUGE amount of hair - at least 1/3 of my hair (no exaggeration).  i saw my dermatologist, who ran some standard blood tests- all which came back unremarkable, he said.  i thought the DHEA was off, but can't remember. 

at any rate, i'm feeling pretty discouraged about the whole thing, as it has not stopped, and i'm thinking of supplementing biotin at high doses.  i couldn't find any solid evidence on kellymom, and wonder of any of you know anything about biotin supplementation and breastfeeding?  also, if anyone has any thoughts about the hair loss, i'm all ears :).  thanks!!
