Diet (Definition)

Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy.

Is androgenic alopecia transmitted from person to person?

Is androgenic alopecia transmitted from person to person?

No, likely genetic: "pattern baldness" is the most common cause of hair loss, and is usually hereditary. It's in the genes and is passed from parents to their children. In men, it is called male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia. Men get a receding hair line and hair loss on top of the head. In women, it is called female pattern baldness. Women get some hair loss from the whole scalp, so the hair looks thinner.

Is there any treatment for androgenic alopecia?

Is there any treatment for androgenic alopecia?

Hair Restoration: I agree with dr. Pollard -- but there has been success with Minoxidil topically as well as with finasteride. Hair transplants can work well. We are working on a variety of hair restoration topical sprays and techniques that have shown promise as well....But the official answer for now is: minoxidil, finasteride, and hair transplants.

How to solve the problem of androgenic alopecia?

Lower androgens: Presuming you are male, androgenic alopecia, translated to male pattern hair loss, obviously is directly related to two things--genetics and testosterone (and its derivatives). Since you can't beat your genetics, lowering your testosterone does seem to help. Obviously this has side effects. Finasteride is the best studied medication used to treat this type of hair loss.

I thought androgenic alopecia only occurred in older men. I developed it around age 6 or 7. I'm a male & 22 now. Is this rare case?

I thought androgenic alopecia only occurred in older men. I developed it around age 6 or 7. I'm a male & 22 now. Is this rare case?

Rare cass: I am surprised that the doctor who saw you first at age 6 or 7 but has not done a good job of taking care of you. You MUST see a Dermatologist soon. Either have a friend or family member set you up with a Dermatologist! . Wish you well, and please keep me informed. We can all learn something.

How to know if I have telegon effluvium or androgenic alopecia?

How to know if I have telegon effluvium or androgenic alopecia?

Difficult to tell: Telogen effluvium is associated with an acute event, such as pregnancy, severe illness, or intense psychological stress. Therefore, a history of a precipitating event or drug would aid diagnosis. Also, the results of the hair pull test would be positive in te. Sometimes a biopsy from an area of alopecia can help distinguish the two.

Androgenic alopecia - how to get rid of it?

No cure for baldness: Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia are the two medications in the U.S. For treatment (and "prevention") of baldness, mainly male-pattern baldness. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and start treatment. Results vary from person to person, but one's "appearance" is usually improved. There is no cure for baldness, so the medications must be continued for the benefit to continue.

Iam a 25yrs lady, how to prevent hair loss? Wat is the diet..

Iam a 25yrs lady, how to prevent hair loss? Wat is the diet..

Hair loss: Hair loss is less common in women than in men. If you are healthy, I would recommend well balanced diet that has plenty of necessary vitamins and nutrients. Nothing special and by the way you don't need to supplement with any artificial vitamins. Make sure to treat your hair gently and apply as less chemicals and subject it to as least thermal damage as possible.

Does androgenic alopecia run in everybody in the family, or are some guys spared?

Does androgenic alopecia run in everybody in the family, or are some guys spared?

May be spared: The genes associated with increased risk of getting androgenic alopecia are primarily passed by your mother via one of her 2 x chromosomes or by one of her 2 chromosome #3. Therefore, brothers have 50 percent chance of getting the same chromosome. However, there is also an increased risk (about 2.5 x) of baldness derived from the father's y chromosome and/or chromosome #3.

I suffer from hairfall, androgenic alopecia! Best treatment?

I suffer from hairfall, androgenic alopecia! Best treatment?

Rogaine (minoxidil): If you have been diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia by a physician, then I would suggest you use rogaine (minoxidil) foam for men twice a day. I also advise patients to take vitamins such as biotin, not because it increases hair production but because it makes hair thicker and shinier and thus gives the appearance of more hair. Also, I would suggest talking to your physician about taking finesteride.
