Hair Loss (Definition)

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.

With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head thins and falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called female diffuse hair loss.

Experiencing for 2 yrs severe chronic fatigue, hair loss, no menstrual cycle, shortness of breath, nausea, frequent bronchitis, joint/muscle pain.Been taking adderol.Rbc platelet tibc others off.Med cause?

Assuming you dont have an eating disorder where restriction leads to malnutrition then the search needs to go other diseases such as autoimmune disease and rheumatological disorders. Adderal will not help as it may cause rebound depression making mood worse along with physical symptoms. Dysautonomia can cause this. ...Read more

Alopecia: Alopecia or hair loss has many different causes. Unfortunately, we often can't explain why but explain it as a reaction to stress (very common after hospitalization, surgery, childbirth, etc), poor nutrition, thyroid disorders, etc. Skin infections & immune system disorder can cause hair loss, too. In men, too much dihydrotestosterone can cause hair loss. Don't forget medications. Go see your doc. ...Read more

If you have itching as well you may have something else going on in your body..as an example, gallstones, which can cause itching and hence hair loss. ...Read more
