    I suffer hair loss for about 10 years (im 29 years old)

    [my hair falling off entire of my head especially sides, 70% of my hair was fell out
    my hair analysis said that calcium level is too high, and magnecium and copper is a bit high and the rest of mineral level is low
    which means im too much stressful have chronic fatigue and ive read that too much calcium in hair can cause hair loss. so i guess i have CTE -chronic telogen effluvium]

    im on minoxidil for 7 month.

    the 1st month i suffered some initial shedding for 5 weeks.

    and than hair falling stopped.

    and about the 4th month, shedding started again,

    the shedding is for almost 4 months (3 and half) now

    im so exhausted but won't give up using monoxidil because this is the only way i can do.

    and i recently take multi vitamin, selenium (300%), vitamin E (360%), vitamin D(500%), potassium(30%) ..

    is anyone here suffer shedding for long time ?

    what should I do ?

    please advice!
