Hi Guys, any advice would be much appreciated...  I had my bypass on 9 December and have lost just over 3 stone! I'm so happy and begining to feel like to old me again smile I was warned that you can lose some hair due to the change in diet & supplements etc, and it has just started to come out sad has anyone else experienced this, I suppose I would just like to know if this is a temporary thing and can I take any extra supplements to help?  Thanks for looking peeps smile

    Hi!

    Although I haven't had the bypass I have had a gastric band fitted October last year and have noticed my hair falling out more and more.

    Apparently it is from sudden weight loss and should settle down!

    I take multi vitamins and minerals daily to try and help xx

    What's ur protein intake like?? At my 1st pre op appointment the dietician drilled it into us To ensure we eat enough protein (60g) as apparently lack of protein in the diet can make hair fall out.

    Hi T1nker8ell, well done that's a brilliant weight loss. I had my by pass in November and my hair has recently started to thin. I've been taking a hair, skin and nail supplement from my local supermarket. My hairdresser has said that I have new growth coming through and to continue taking the supplements. Hope this of some help to you. Take care, Lenora x
