Hair & Skin

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can have many causes, including genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, certain medications, medical conditions, and lifestyle factors.

Some of the most common causes of hair loss include:

  1. Genetics: Male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness are genetic conditions that can cause hair loss.
  2. Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes due to pregnancy, menopause, thyroid problems, and hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss.
  3. Medical conditions: Medical conditions like scalp infections, autoimmune disorders, and alopecia areata can cause hair loss.
  4. Medications: Some medications used to treat cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure can cause hair loss.
  5. Nutritional deficiencies: A diet lacking in protein, iron, and other essential nutrients can cause hair loss.
  6. Stress: Stress can cause temporary hair loss, especially if it is chronic.

Treatment for hair loss depends on the cause. In some cases, hair may grow back on its own without treatment. In other cases, medication, hair transplants, or other treatments may be necessary. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause of hair loss and the best course of treatment.
