Everyone is different. If you don't have insulin resistance, oatmeal might be fine for you. I realized how CRAZY HIGH my blood sugars were getting after eating grains after I bought a blood sugar meter and test strips and starting tracking it on my own. My Dr. was NO help in this area and actually had recommended a high carb, low fat diet to me for weight loss!!!!
Anyway, if you've never tracked what your blood sugar response is to specific foods, that might be a good idea. It might be that for you, blood sugar is not such an issue.
Also, hair loss in reaction to a med can happen MONTHS later, so it might be that it was the med contributing, and that your hair will begin to grow back soon.
