Patient : Hi, Im 18 years old, and last year i lost about 20 lbs. for 6 months didnt eat enough but exercised a lot. my doctor told me i had to gain weight back when he saw that i had nutritional deficiencies and that i had a heart rate of 40. my circulation got really bad and my hair was falling out. since then i have gained back some weight and im at a healthy weight now, but my hair is STILL falling out constantly and my hands are always cold, along with my feet. Im really concerned about this, espeially my hair, it seems like my diet is ok, how can i get my hair to grow back?
