Apr 27, 2018 Male Hair Loss / Alopecia
Hair loss is usually an older man’s condition which also affects younger men too. Most men have an inkling that they may be susceptible to losing their hair after looking at family members. Male pattern baldness tends to be hereditary and runs in families. Sometimes men go against family traits and lose hair even if their male relatives don’t. This may be due to the baldness gene skipping a generation or lifestyle choices switching the gene on. Male pattern baldness is due to hair follicles being sensitive to DHT which is a derivative of testosterone. Other causes of hair loss include; illness, iron deficiency, stress, cancer treatment and extreme weight loss. If you suddenly experience hair loss for no apparent reason visit your doctor to identify the cause. Any type of hair loss causes men to feel self-conscious and worry about their appearance. The NHS offer advice to help you better understand your hair loss. There is no definitive cure for male pattern baldness although it is possible to stall the process through medication. Ultimately men learn to accept their thinning hair and embrace their new appearance. If the cause is due to health reasons hair may regrow once the condition is under control.
