Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.
Massive weight loss like 27 kg in one year may cause hair loss as as side effect.
In addition stress ,hormonal factors also cause hair loss.

Regarding diet include XXXXXXX leafy vegetables in diet also take fresh fruits,fruit juices, amla,lemon juice in diet. include soya products in diet as they have good quality proteins.

Also 1 tablet of multivitamin multimineral amino acids daily can help a lot in predicting the condition.One such supplement is available called Keraglo men capsule.One capsule daily is recommended dose.it covers all the dietary requirements.If you take one such capsule per day no dietary modification is advised.

Hope this helps .
I will be available for any further clarification.

Hi, I'm 25 years old female and have been experiencing hair loss for over 8 years now. I also got my CBC test and thyroid test done but they are all fine - I don't have iron deficiency or thyroid problem, I don't understand the cause of this gradual hair loss. It started after I'd done extreme dieting at the age of 16, but it's been years since I've stopped dieting and eating healthy but still no improvement. I also take multivitamins as prescribed by a dermatologist. Neither does such condition run in my family.. Please help!
p.s I am 52 kg in weight and 5'5" in height.
