Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

What should I do about my hair loss after having my ovaries removed at age 35?

Surgical Menopause: Your ovaries were your main source of male and female hormones. They regulate hair and skin vitality; affect osteoporosis, muscle mass etc. Unless the ovaries were removed because of cancer, you likely need labs including tsh, free T3 (liothyronine) and 4 and reverse T3 (liothyronine) run at a reference lab and bio-identical hormones replaced to a youthful level. Supplements and good diet to optimize / maintain hair growth. ...Read more

Can green tea and green tea extract interact with propecia 1mg? I’m taking propecia for hair loss. Thanks

Not likely: Green tea is one of those things which theoretically contains useful molecules but has not been studied in a meaningful way by legitimate scientists. If you like green tea, drink it. Green tea pills are just a scam. If you want the benefits of propecia at a fraction of the cost, get FINASTERIDE 5mg and a pill cutter to create 4 pieces. ...Read more

Should I see a dermatologist for hair loss when it started after I removed the nuvaring? My thyroid and iron panels are normal and endo dr. Is stumped

Not yet...: It is likely that your body just needs time to adjust. Normal fluctuations to achieve balance could be affecting your hair growth and loss. Give your body time to get use to not having the NuvaRing, ensure you are eating a balanced diet, exercising and trust your endocrinologist and gynecologist to advise on when or if you might need a dermatology consult. ...Read more

Thyroid removed level at. 406 now on meds have a lot symptoms of low thyroid, hair loss and breakage dry skin constipated doc says fine y I feel bad?

Not sure.: Could be that you are underdosed in your thyroid replacement hormone. I am not sure if 0.406 is your current TSH or not. If it is, it is hard to explain. If this doesn't clear up in a short while you might consider repeating your TSH and using a small dose of t3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
