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
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. For other ideas see http://www. Naturalnews. Com/012893_hair_loss_male_pattern_baldness. Html & http://articles. Timesofindia. Indiatimes. Com/2013-04-05/beauty/30449632_1_hair-loss-scalp-natural-oil.
Possibly: Biotin if a vitamin that promotes hair and nail growth and can help people with hair loss. Not sure what msm is can you elaborate?
I am using daily surbex-z multivitamin at night and evione 400 mg at morning because of hair loss. Have it any side effects?
Probably Not.: Probably no side effects except to your pocket. Probably has no benefits as well. Be skeptic to the promotions of these vitamins. You will get more benefits by a healthy life style of diet and excercise
I'm 54 & take a multivitamin, should I also take more iron to prevent hair loss? I know it will thin with age but i'd really like to keep it a while.
Depends: Taking iron is generally advisable for women who are menstruating. If one is not having periods and didn't become iron deficient in the perimenopausal period, taking iron will not be useful. Healthy hair can be promoted by eating healthy foods, taking essential fatty acids, getting a good night sleep, and handling stress well.

See Dermatologist.: First thing to know is that genetics plays the biggest role in early graying- we can't change our genetics. To reduce risks of early graying & hair loss: 1. Don't Smoke. 2. Correct Zinc, Vit B or other nutritional deficiencies. Vegans are at risk for Vit B12 deficiencies. 3. Ensure that your thyroid is healthy. 4. Diets> Eggs are rich in biotin. Dark greens are high in Vit A & C. Omega 3 fattySee 1 more doctor answer
I'm taking propecia (finasteride) and but my hair is still very weak and hair loss but when I take multivitamin my hair get thick slowly which vitamin dificiency??
Biotin: I think I understand now what you're asking. There's not a lot of hard science here, but anecdotally, biotin enhances recovery of hair, more in patients with telogen effluvium than in male pattern baldness. If it works for you, great. But don't overdo taking biotin -- too much can make you quite sick. Can any other physicians here weigh in?
I'm taking theragran stress tablet one tab. Daily which is a multivitamin bec. Of hair loss. No deficiency could this be overdose? Slight cramps in colon
Should be fine: Some controversy exists over whether a person who eats a balanced diet with lots of vegetables/fruits needs to take a vitamin. But over-the-counter vitamins are formulated to provide a generous amount of vitamins, but not excessive or toxic. Not sure it will help hair loss, but very unlikely to be harmful. Bowel cramps may be signal of mild constipation, sometimes seen with vits. Push fluids/fiber
Hair Loss: Telogen effluvium is a form of nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset. A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists. Telogen effluvium is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications or phycical or mental stress. Generally, recovery is spontaneous and occurs within 6 months.
Depends on cause...: One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes. If none are found, then one can see a dermatologist, especially one specializing in hair restoration (some treatments: minoxidil, etc, . ..). Medical causes may include: hormonal problems (low thyroid), seborrhea, alopecia areata, stressful illness. Other causes: genetic male/female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium.
Food not the answe: You'd get the idea from reading stuff on the internet that food choices are the answer to everything. This isn't true. Your hair loss is genetically determined. You can slow it down if you wish by visiting your physician and getting certain medicines, or you can embrace it as natural and masculine, maybe building your muscles. Getting fit to match. Many extreme-tough-guy fighters shave everything.
Hair loss treatment: Propecia (finasteride) is a medication used to treat male pattern baldness, not a condition that causes hair loss. There are many causes of hair loss. These include genetic (male or female pattern baldness), autoimmune (alopecia areata), telogen effluvium, and others. So, treatment depends on the type and causes of the hair loss. I would recommend seeing your dermatologist.See 2 more doctor answers
