    I'm very sorry for what you're going through. Because you have several autoimmune diseases, I hope you are under the care of a super good rheumatologist. If not please get with a rheumy right away. Some automimmune diseases have symptoms of hair loss and other problems.

    Please be extra careful with anything that are supplements, vitamins or herbals and run them first past your doctors before taking. There can be adverse effects with some meds you take and even some vitamins have to be watched because in larger quantity that can be bad if you have automimmune problems where internal organs like kidneys may be involved. So please get suggestions and then run them by your doctor first before taking so you do not add to the problems you already have. Good luck and hugs.
