Something for hair lost?
« on: July 02, 2009, 02:45:31 PM »
I'm writing about this so I don't forget about it.  I was whining about my thinning hair to my rheumy yesterday and she said something about getting "Biotene."  I said, "is this the stuff I use for brushing my teeth?"  She said no.  I believe it is in a capsule ..ie..vitamin type..  I have not been to the pharmacy to check this out yet.  You can believe I'll find it or call her office back.  Lucy

She may have meant biotin, which is Vitamin B8

Yes, I am sure she meant Biotin.  You can find it at any drugstore.  I wonder if it really helps.  If you try it, please let us know:)

thanks for the correction!  She seemed to really think this would help.

Lucy,

She meant biotin...she told me the same thing...did she give you any other news? guess we have to wait for the labs. I usually call her office a week later and
they fax them to me via efax..I gave up on the hair loss thing. I think most of mine is hormonal so Im going to work on that now.

take care...
