When your brain thinks you’re starving, vital organs (brain, heart, kidney and liver) are fed first, and whatever is left goes to less vital areas (skin, nails and hair).

This is why having a regular urinalysis is so important. It allows your practitioner to spot starvation and make changes before it becomes a problem.

If there are no starvation markers in your urinalysis but you are still experiencing hair loss, you may have a low-functioning thyroid. Other low-thyroid symptoms include cold hands and feet, low body temperature, fatigue, low libido, poor sleep, headaches, difficulty swallowing and weight gain.
