RIght now I have a major problem with hair loss. I am planning to start a CKD next month. I was wondering if there was any way a CKD could accelerate hair loss?

BUMP, i know it's a stupid question, but I just want to make sure.

sup with having hair loss at...18?

There isn't any documented evidence saying that a ketogenic diet will accelerate hair loss, but that may be just because there isn't any documented evidence about that subject at all (that I'm aware of).

IMO, it shouldn't have any effect.

a ckd should be ok if your calories are within 1000 cals of maintenance.extremely low calories can retard thyroid function which can cause dry skin which includes your scalp.dont know if that would cause hair loss though
