\'K\' and hair loss


#1

Is the efficacy of spironolactone due to its antiandrogenic effects only or is it also due to its potassium sparing effect?

( There is a theory that Potassium is essential for hair and its deficiency can cause hair loss).

I have reduced the duretics in my diet so that minerals arent flushed away.

But all diuretics do not flush minerals away. For example spiro prevent potassium excretion.

What kind of diuretics due you include in your diet?

Diuretics, like green tea, can also be good for the body, flushing the kidneys of toxins. And some people believe that hair loss is, in part, a malfunction of the kidneys.

If you’re concerned about potassium then try adding apple cider vinegar to your diet. I’ve read that apple cider vinegar used internally and externally is great for hair loss. Try googling “apple cider vinegar hair loss”
