Hi Cathia,

Just wanted to check on you to see if you've learned anymore about your condition. I am continuing to ask doctors and friends to see if anyone has had anything similar to what you're experiencing.

I'd love to know what the doctors think you have.

Would you mind checking back with me and our guests from time to time and keep us posted? I'm curious as to what the doctors say you have.....

You cannot be the only woman to have these symptoms. I hope another woman comes on the site and can tell you that they had, what you have. And can help you identify your condition. It's called validation. If we can just find someone who has had this and can tell you what they did to get well. It would be a good start.

Be well,

Hi Cathia,

Thank you for sharing your story with me. I've been checking on some things this morning and have some members of our team looking on this as well.
Losing you hair is such a hard thing for women to deal with. I can totally relate. I started losing my hair at 18. It was devastating.

I'm just wondering about your thryroid. It was the first thing I thought of. Have you had your thryroid checked as well as your T3 and T4? Also, too much testosterone can cause hair loss. Cortisol levels and DHT can do the same. I'm just trying to figure out the connection between the hair loss and the loss of your nails. Can you tell me how they treated you the first time around? It sounded like the holistic approach worked better for you. I'm just wondering what they gave you to take or to do to stop your condition from worsening.

I think Tina was going to ask you if we can take your video out and see if we can find some women who've had your condition.

If we can help you.....we can help other women. That's the goal.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. Let's see what we can find out........We will try our best to help you figure this out.
