Does Obesity Cause Hair Loss
Maybe but ask doctor: A person with obesity and hair loss may have a hormonal problem that a doctor can evaluate.

On the other hand, a person could be obese and losing hair, without the two symptoms having any relationship to one another. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Alopecia is the loss of hair. Hair loss can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles. Fungal infections can also cause hair loss. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out.

It can be elevated from chronic diseases(like vascular or obesity) or from autoimmune processes or from infections to name a few. But before you contemplate steroids, you want to have an idea of what is actually being treated. More info is necessary to better guide you. ...Read more
