It would actually be best to go to the gynae who prescribed the medication that she is currently using. You will be able to go for tests, but you won't get the results, they send the results to the doctor. If it is totally out of the question, then you can try and go to Helderberg Hospital outpatients, all the tests can be done there, and they might refer your sister to Tygerberg Hospital for further investigations. It does sound as if the hormonal problem is still present, even though she is on medication. Also, remember that stress can wreak havoc on one's body and can definitely contribute to her hair falling out. Good luck!
