Lack of folic acid in your diet can cause folic acid deficiency. Which in the end causes anemia.

Indirectly, the answer is yes. Sulfasalazine can have an affect on folic acid levels causing a deficiency. A deficiency in folic acid can cause thinning and loss of hair. Ask you doctor to check you folic acid levels. If deficient, you can be prescribed a folic acid supplement such as Folgard RX.

Uuuum....what? Do you mean "why would a lack of folic acid NOT cause nuerological problems" or do you mean why DOES it? Please clarify,as my friend is anxious to know the answer.

Because folic acid deficiency can cause birth defects, all women of childbearing age who can become pregnant should consume at least 400 mcg of folic acid daily.

No... folic acid is vitamin B9.
