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.

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.

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. ...Read more

Hi doc! I'm having severe hair loss and greying of hairs please tell me any multivitamin tablet which I can easily get here in india.

But don't overdo taking biotin -- too much can make you quite sick. Can any other physicians here weigh in? ...Read more

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 ...Read more
