Hair Loss Causes & Treatments
What Causes Hair Loss?
The medical term for hair loss is alopecia, a condition that occurs as part of the overall aging process. There are different types and causes of hair loss many of us begin to notice mild thinning of our hair after the age of 40. Hair loss occurs to both male and female, but it is more pronounced in men. Some of the hair loss could be caused by:
- A strong predisposing genetic factor in accelerated hair loss.
- Hormonal changes during puberty, after pregnancy and menopause, and even after taking oral contraceptives may also increase in hair loss.
- Health conditions, including thyroid disease, iron deficiency anemia, general ill health, and overly strict dieting with protein deprivation can cause more hair loss.
- Stress can also bring about hormonal changes that are responsible for hair loss. This can be physical stress after a serious illness or recovery from surgery, over exercising and emotional stress.
While most hair loss is not associated with systemic disease, it is important to speak to your physician about the cause of your hair loss and treatment options.
