Hir loss - ?? Low T: Hair loss is problematic at any age. Typically one will go through periods of hair loss and some regrowth. Your doctor can obtain lab tests: total and free testosterone, to assess the levels. At age 21 i would expect them to be normal. Your doc may well also check thyroid function.
