View Full Version : ON Whey possibly making my mother's hair fall out? REPS

2 weeks ago I had my mother start drinking one protein shake a day using a scoop of Optimum Nutrition chocolate whey.

She says today her hair is falling out like crazy and she thinks it is the whey. I told her that is not likely but I figured I would ask you guys first.

She is 41, so maybe she is just getting old, but she said it is falling out at a rate where she will be bald in no time and I do believe she was being sincere.

Thank you so much in advance.

WILL REP

tell your mom that we can dance if she wants to... we can leave her friends behind.

'cuz her friends don't dance and if they don't dance, then they're no friends of mine.

It is not the protein. If it was some allergy to protein she'd have the same result if she quit drinking it and switched to an equivalent amount of protein from another source, be it steak/egg/chicken/milk/etc.

Highly doubtful it was caused by the whey.

I would suspect something to be wrong though, she should see a doctor.

A badge and a whistle would be way more cool.

hair loss can be a rare effect of lactose allergy. is she lactose intolerant?

if not, sudden hair loss like that is not good and she should see a doctor for a full metabolic panel.
