    Telogen effluvium (TE) is probably the second most common form of hair loss dermatologists see. High fever, illness, surgical procedures, childbirth, stress, thyroid disease, crash diets, and some medications can cause the actively growing hairs to cycle to a resting then falling out stage. The result is all-over shedding, or TE hair loss.
