What Your Hair Says About Your Health
You might not know what medications suit your body and which donít but your hair can help. For example a 2000 study carried out at University of Louisville School of Medicine in Louisville, Kentucky showed that medication-induced alopecia can result from the consumption of certain psychopharmaceuticals in patients with a reaction to them. Among the drugs mentioned in the study is lithium.
Not mentioned in the study is whether eating foods or drinking fluids with lithium also produces the same balding but there is no reason to believe that in a high enough concentration, that the results would not be the same. Bottom line--if you're experiencing hair loss, read the labels and avoid excessive lithium.
