Causes of hair loss since 4 years

Question:-

Sir, I’m suffering hair loss from 4 years, my parents are not bald mean no genetic problems?

Answer:-

Thank you for your question. As you have already mentioned, you don’t have baldness in your paternal & maternal side. It is a good thing to know, however history of genetic predisposition of baldness may present in your earlier generations also rather than only in your parents. So not having baldness in either of your parents doesn’t mean that you will not get baldness in the future. If you are losing hair, you need to understand whether you’re losing hair from the entire scalp or facing frontal hairline recession, crown thinning. If you’re losing hair in this way, then this is called patterned hair loss. This is also called as Androgenetic alopecia. Other types of hair loss like Telogen effluvium gives all over diffuse thinning on the entire scalp & are a type of hair loss is due to some acute stress, or triggers in a body. This is usually temporary & doesn’t lead to baldness.

Nutritional factor also plays an important role in hair loss. As you’re already taking vitamin supplements, to can continue with it. But we strongly recommend you to undergo blood investigations to judge your level of vitamin deficiencies & based on that can start with supplements.

 


What are the Nutritional Causes of Hair Loss?


 

Hair loss is a multifactorial condition, in which a patient feels hair loss due to multiple reasons. This includes hair loss due to hereditary causes, genetic factors, Stress related, Medicinal, hormonal, due to some nutritional deficiencies etc. Each type of hair loss has to be treated differently. Let’s elaborate you more on these types:

  • Hereditary & Genetic hair loss:- In this type of hair loss, the patient gives a family history of baldness. Scalp show a frontal hairline recession, mid-scalp thinning, crown thinning. Hair thinning is more gradual & come out with different grades from grade 1 to grade 7 baldness(Norwood scale). Minoxidil & oral finasteride is the mainstay of treatment in treating this type of alopecia.

 

  • Hormonal:- Many of the patients gives a history of thyroid dysfunction, most commonly in females which also leads to diffuse thinning of hair on all over the scalp.
  • Stress-Induced:- This type of hair loss also called as ‘Telogen effluvium‘, which usually gets triggered by some acute stress like a history of hospitalization for some illness, crash dieting, in females after delivery. These factors act as a trigger for hair loss. This leads to diffuse all over thinning on the scalp. This type of hair loss usually continues for 3 to 4 months & then settles down.
  • Nutritional hair loss:- This type of hair loss caused due to deficiencies of certain vitamins in the body. So, a patient needs to be investigated for this. Supplementation of these deficient vitamins helps to control hair loss.
  • Medicinal:- certain medications can also lead to hair loss.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
