Larry thanks so much for taking the time to answer in such detail. I was taking to much of both selenium and zinc. I read 50 mcg of zinc and 150-180 selenium for hair loss. Zinc is in my mineral suppliment and my multi 15mcg each so before the zinc suppliment I all ready was getting 30mcg, then I added 50mcg zinc on top wich wasn't that bad if I hadn't doubled up taking the zinc and selenium twice a day. that's 130mcg zinc and 400mcg selenium. I so much want to keep my hair on my head.

I don't know if zinc can make you sick so quickly but I stopped the zinc and selenium and I'm no longer sleeping 15 hours a day. Can't say if it's from a 25% dose reduction in busbar or from quitting Zinc. I am gluten free for 15-20 years. I eat very little grain, a little rice and buckwheat nothing else. it sounds like I should continue the selenium.

I take magnieium glycinate 800 mg/day and a small mineral suppliment D 400iu, K 100mcg, calcium cittrate/malate, 350 magnisium glycinate174, zinc 15 copper 2mg manganese 3.6. I also take NAC, ALCAR, B complex, multi, plus intermittenly SAMe.

If you have any further advise I'd be interested to read it. thanks
