    Is hair loss a side effect of Cholestoff supplements?

I am dieting and exercising. I have lost 40 lbs, and my hair is falling out. I switched from a low carb, high fat diet to s low calorie, low fat diet. I exercise 60-90 minutes a day. Besides vitamins, I started taking Cholestoff to kower my cholesterol. Can that be the cause of ny hair loss?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

There is no medical evidence base that Cholestoff can cause hair loss. I suggest you to do further examination such as a complete blood count to see which is the cause of your hair loss.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
