When to see a doctor?
Hair loss (alopecia) is a medical condition affecting hair follicles. The same occurs with male-pattern baldness. A hormone called DHT causes hair follicles to shrink to a point where hair cannot grow again, as is in its normal hair growth cycle.
If your hair loss is due to Male Pattern Baldness, hair will not regrow again in the balding area if treatments only begin after years. However, new dormant roots can regrow hair again. About 85% of men have hair thinning by age 50. When to see a doctor? Men aren’t as willing to talk about their health problems, including losing their hair. To take control of your hair loss:
Seek a doctor’s advice on your hair falling out, your health, and possible causes of your hair loss.
Discuss your condition and symptoms with your doctor and request blood tests if there is an underlying health problem.
