Does Gastroparesis cause extreme hair loss?


velma772 posted 1 week ago

How much hair is “normal” to loose? Though my body was doing better as I am tolerating more foods the past week or so but my hair is falling out a lot! Not so much in clumps, but as I run my fingers through it it wash my hair in the shower.
