Intro to Vitamin D Deficiency and After Chemotherapy Hair Loss
It takes time for the chemotherapy drugs to be detoxified from your body once
you have received your last chemotherapy treatment.
Some people will begin seeing some thin, fuzzy hair several weeks after their last treatment, but
how quickly your hair grows back obviously varies from person to person.
Keep in mind, that like any other part of our body,
your hair needs a variety of nutrients to be healthy and to grow at its maximum level.
A very overlooked deficiency when concerned with hair growth, Vitamin D is one of the
important nutrients for healthy hair.
Vitamin D metabolizes keratinocytes in the skin.
Keratinocytes are skin cells that process keratin, a protein in hair, nails, and skin.
When the body is deficient in vitamin D, then the keratinocytes in the hair follicles can’t regulate hair growth and shed properly–leading to slow growth and increased and unwanted shedding.
Vitamin D Deficiency and After Chemotherapy Hair Loss
Those with a deficiency in vitamin D may have no symptoms, or their symptoms may be nonspecific and change over time.
*****It’s important to note that we are not medical professionals, so we don’t give any medical advice or make claims. It’s best to have your doctor do a blood test to check your vitamin D levels.*****
A lack of sunlight or not eating enough foods containing vitamin D are the common causes of a deficiency.
Of course, those suffering from an underlying condition such as Crohn’s disease or Celiac disease may be deficient because those challenges prevent the body from completely absorbing nutrients.
Certain medications cause the body to break down vitamin D before it can be used, so those medications may cause a deficiency in vitamin D.
Some of those medications are antifungals, glucocorticoids, HIV medications, and anticonvulsants.
Supplementing with vitamin D supplements could help if you are lacking vitamin D.
Conclusion to Vitamin D Deficiency and After Chemotherapy Hair Loss
The best defense against hair loss is eating foods rich in vitamin D and spending 15-20 minutes outside daily.
The flesh of fatty fish (such as trout, salmon, tuna, and mackerel) and fish liver oils are among the best sources of vitamin D.
Adding a vitamin D supplement to your routine can help support your intake goal as well.
Supplements come in various forms. Some are taken daily, once a week, or once a month.
It’s important to have your doctor do a blood test to check your vitamin D levels. If your levels are low, then your doctor will do a blood test every few months to monitor your vitamin D levels.
A lack of vitamin D can leave hair sparse and increase brittleness requiring gentle treatment, so you don’t experience further hair loss and breakage.
