Why have i got hairloss

Recommended Posts

Right guys i need your opinions! About a year i took antibiotics for about 6 months solid, after which i convinced myself i had a candida problem and have dieted(high protein, high fat,no/low carb) on and off ever since. My hair has been itching and thinning out really bad (itching is a side effect of yeast overgrowth and telogen effluvium brought about by atkins-like diets. I used to have the thickest hair imaginable and could spike it without any styling product. Nowadays it is thin and lifeless. So now i cant work out whether my hair loss is due to a yeast infection (candida) or to the low carb diet i've been doing.

This poses a real dilemma for me : I either continue on a very low carb diet and try and completely kill the yeast in my body and hope the hair returns or start eating fruits/wholegrains and hope the hairloss was due to low carb.

Really appreciate your help guys.
