Patient : Hi, im 18 and I've been losing hair on my head pretty diffusely for about 10 months now, and it has grown much thinner. i am pretty sure this is because i lost about 20 lbs last year and had a period where my heart rate was only 40 bpm. my doctor told me it was because i hadnt been eating enough and was exercising too much. that was all several months ago, and i have recovered and gained back about 10 lbs, so im at a healthy weight. still, my hair shedding continues and i dont know what to do about it. ive read online it should grow back. i eat plenty of protein and i usually exercise by running multiple times a week. please help me im really concerned
