I suffered from eating disorders for almost 2yrs & then i managed to cut back on bulimia over a period of a few months & then i stopped all together. About 2 months after I stopped I started losing my hair. I’ve been losing it for almost 7 months now & have been losing eyelashes for about 3 months.
I would like to know whether this is because of bulimia even though throughout the period of months while I was stopping, I ate a fairly balanced diet & i eat a balanced diet now. Also if it is due to it, how long will it take before my hair stops falling out? And if it isnt, what is it due to? I’m 15 so it isnt age or anything.
Please help, thank you.
Bulimia is known to cause telogen effluvium, a temporary hair loss. You need to get nutritional control of your situation and get managed by a good doctor who can follow your hair loss with objective measurement. It could take up to a year to see regrowth.
