Hello,
Thank you for trusting HCM.
D3 doesnt help in Typhoid, but if you have it low you will have some symptoms like fatigue among others. Please continue with your doctor treatment and refer to your doctor for further follow up, D3 is supposed to help with losing hair, but losing hair could be due to many other issues, please refer to a endocrinologist and ask for a hormonal check up, including T3 T4 TSH for the thyroid gland.
hope that helped,
Dr. Ahmad
