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. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. 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

Does Biotin cause weight gain or weight loss at 5,000 MCG twice a day?

Does Biotin cause weight gain or weight loss at 5,000 MCG twice a day?

Neither: 5000 mcg sounds like a huge dose but it is just 5 mg and is very safe and non-toxic. Biotin plays an important role in metabolism so some claim it can help lose weight, but I know of no evidence it causes weight gain or loss (it might help if one is deficient but deficiency is rare). It may help lower blood sugar a bit. See http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/herbsvitaminsa1/a/Biotin.htm ...Read more

Might consuming 8 glasses of water a day help with weight loss and acne?

Might consuming 8 glasses of water a day help with weight loss and acne?

No: It won't touch acne. It may make you a little bit more full and you may therefore eat less. The nonsense about water helping acne derives from the prescientific notion that it "washes out poisons." your personal physician has scientific rx's that will clear acne; weight loss comes from changed lifestyle. Good luck and stay proactive. ...Read more

How much mcg of Biotin should a 15 year old take for hair loss. I've been losing a lot of hair & a dermatologist suggested to take biotin. ?

Suggest you see : your pediatrician, and have them Reglan (metoclopramide) hwork up your thyroid gland. You can take 2000 to 5000 µg a day of biotin no problem for hair thinning.However if you have excessive hair loss, you need to look at the cause of why this is happening, not just treat the symptoms. This could be related to stress, adrenals, or your thyroid gland.So talk to your doctor first before spending any money on biotin. ...Read more

Can i take biotin 10000mcg with multivitamin? Currently i m taking 1tab(multivitaminin) per day. I want 2 take biotin for my hair loss prblm, please ans.

Yes, however...: It is totally safe to take biotin, which is a safe nontoxic vitamin. However, it may not help your hair loss- biotin can help if you are deficient but if not deficient then it is not likely to help.

No: It will not harm you. But it will not benefit you, either. It is in most foods. The harm is wasting your money . The harm is you thinking this is of value so you deprive yourself of something that really does improve your body. Try a dermatologist instead of a con artist. ...Read more

Is it true that wearing a ponytail every day can cause hair loss? And should I change my hair parting frequently as well? I heard that the hair parting can widen over time and hair can thin?

Is it true that wearing a ponytail every day can cause hair loss? And should I change my hair parting frequently as well? I heard that the hair parting can widen over time and hair can thin?

Not material: Unless you pull your hair too tight, how you wear your hair does not have bearing on losing hair. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I've been taking 5,000mcg of Biotin once a day for about 8-9 months for hair loss and haven't seen any significant changes. What should I do? I'm 16.

Worthless: I am sorry you have not had your hair loss evaluated, but were given a "pop" remedy that seldom helps. Get a proper evaluation. If it is hypothyroidism, your life depends on proper treatment. If it is telegen effluvium, perhaps a cause can be found. If it is alopecia areata, Rx will likely fail and you can adapt. ...Read more
