okay let me start off by saying hello guys. im a new member and will explain my story here for anyone who wishes to help me out. about two ago i started to develop cystic acne, worst was on my right cheek. long story short i went on a low carb diet for over a year and just around september of 2012 i realized my hair was thinning rapidly. i had developed all sorts of hypo symptoms prior to that (severe dermatitis on nose fold eyebrows and scalp). around febuary of this year i have upped my carbs by a lot! i am currently ranging from 300-500 grams of carbs a day. i noticed that since my hair thinning started all hair on my body started to thin too. after 3 months on high carb i seem to be getting no results. diet consisting of milk, oj, cheese, traditionally prepared tortillas, some meat and alot of sugar and fruit. id like to add that i am 20 and work in construction (could that be hindering progress? and if so what can i do to atleast slightly counter act it? more sleep?) so far my hairk has thinned out and im scared ima be bald by the time im 21. i loose TONS of hair on my head and the roots are so weak. when i kwork i feel inflimation on my scalp. my dad is also 55 and is only slighktly balding and has strong temple hair. so i know this cant be right since i inherited most of his skin genetics. so here comes the questions and i hope i can get some insighkt. why doesnt my symptoms ever improve? did i permenantly damage myself with low carbs? why dont i get acne even when i eat high carb anymore? should i be eating alot more cals since i work construction (i eat 3500 on average). could i be defiecent in hgh due to low carb? deficient in minerals or vitamins? why does the sun aggravate my symptoms? and most important questions, what should be my first moves? should i take thyroid? pregnenolone? Progesterone? should i still have hope? am i never atleast gonna recover just some of my hair? sorry this was so long but if you got this far i truly appreciate your time.
