Patient :I am a 17 year old female. I have been on a diet and have lost about 15 pounds. I now weight 206. This morning, I got in the shower and started to wet my hair. When I looked down at my hands, there was quite a bit of hair in my hands. As I kept washing my hair, I kept noticing hair coming out. I have never been diagnosed with any sort of deficiency problem, nor any other type of illness or disease. What could be the cause of this?
