hi doctors from baldingblog.com
How is the new year going so far? My doctor tested my vitamin d levels and it came out i’ve got 13nmol instead of 75nmol. I also have little bone recession in the back, the specialist that found it with photo’s asked if i ever had a accident. I haven’t. I don’t know how long i’m vitamin d deficient, it can be years. My question to you is;
1. Is 13nmol dangerous low?
2. Can it cause little recession in the hairline? Lower quality hair all over? (sometimes i find miniaturized hair in the permanent zone and top, or thick with less pigment, or with strange structures.)
Thank you for your help!
Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to your question.
Vitamin D deficiencies are a potential cause of hair loss, but I frankly do not have any experience with vitamin D levels at those reported by you. It sounds like you will be treated for the low vitamin D and you can keep an eye on your hair thickness and progression (or lack of it), for the small amount of recession you see. Even better, you should have your hair bulk checked now and compare it a point down the line when your vitamin D levels are corrected, so that you have numbers along with the visual analysis.
