Laurie wrote: I had the itching all over as a part of peri menopause. Doubt you’re experiencing the change (lucky bastad), but that’s still a hormone deficiency issue that caused the itching. Definitely get a hormone balance check done. If your insurance will cover it. Mine won’t, so I had to figure it out for myself and then do what WEBMD said (because I also have every ailment listed - haha) and am now less miserable as peri menopause continues to haunt my life.
Good Luck!
PS: had NO IDEA I was tossing ideas around for a celebrity! Whoa :-o


I'm suppose to be on klonipin and when I am the ideas in my head of death seem to disappear.Just as quick as my klonipin does.

I think the whole hair loss and low test caused by kratom is one of those causation does not equal correlation. You have to look at other things as well. Low T could be caused by a number of issues including lack of sleep, stress which increases cortisol which leads to low test, and a poor diet especially one that lacks healthy fats.

What time of day did you get your blood drawn? If you had it drawn in the afternoon after a meal or two then your test levels will be lower. The optimal time to get your test levels checked is between 8 and 10 A:M on an empty stomach. One's levels could be 250 ng/dl if taken in the afternoon and 600 if taken first thing in the morning.

Throwing in my 2 cents:

I’m female. Over the last couple years had the itchy body rash, often at night, chest and lower back, arms. It wasn’t until I found out years later my liver was shot (almost cirrhosis.) the itch (in my case) was my liver being unable to filter properly and the body was trying to get rid of excess bile. I ended up in hospital for weeks with ridiculous jaundice and very sick. Not once did I mention Kratom to any of the doctors. I’ve wondered a lot if the Kratom I’m taking is harming my liver or hindering my healing, but can’t get a real answer online, and any doc will most likely just say just stop taking it. Kratom is really all I have left, I do no drugs or drink anymore.
If you have a doctor, why not just go get your liver numbers checked and ask your doc how you’re doing? Get a sonogram or something. Oh btw, my hair intermittently falls out in handfuls. I’m on a lot of vitamins. And my liver problems were due to drinking every day for 7-8 years so, different situation. I was taking kratom the last couple years, along with drinking. I’m out of the hospital 2 months, my numbers getting better slowly.
Long story short, get yourself checked!

I had my liver enzymes checked 3 times this Year.
Full blood work.
Nothing abnormal.
I use kratom 1 tablespoon 4 times a day.
Hope that helps.
Not to say we are aren't different but many I know had the same result .
No liver issues

It's like kratom works for almost everyone, but a small few can't take it because of their liver. I do. I'm going to the doctor tuesday. Is turning green in the late stages of liver damage?

Since the liver detoxifies the blood EVERYTHING you ingest will eventually go through the liver BUT your body also makes various chemicals as byproducts of digestion and other metabolic processes. Your liver detoxes these too.

If you have a doctor, why not just go get your liver numbers checked and ask your doc how you’re doing?


By the time your "numbers" change on liver function tests the liver has already been damaged. Unfortunately, physicians have no tools to help BEFORE such damage occurs.

It is quite possible to have a "stressed" liver BUT still have normal numbers because no damage has yet occurred. Traditional chinese medical practitioners, naturopaths, and herbalists would be the best people to consult in order to find treatments to restore the liver health and relieve any stresses it might be expereincing. There are many herbs, for example that are known to "cleanse" the liver, but simply taking the herbs may not produce the changes you want. It is always best to consult someone who is trained in the type of holistic health and who can recommend diet, and lifestyle changes that work together with herbs and supplements.

You only have one liver... it pays to keep it in tip top shape.

I’ve been taking more vitamins, drinking more water and using a leave in conditioner that helps strengthen/stop breakage, and it seems to help a lot.

Hi all, I don’t know if I’m doing this right.

I originally posted this topic about hair loss. I apologize if it alarmed anyone. I have since found out that no, it is not the Kratom. I had a near-death hospital trip in December. I went to a dermatologist this nonth (May) and he said it is most most likely Telogen Effluvium, a hair loss/regrowth cycle that can happen after a major physical or emotional shock to the body. He said it should be growing again fine within a year. Sooooo, yay? I knew Kratom would never hurt me. ;)
