Factor's Leading to Hair Loss
Losing hair is common for men, normally developing as alopecia (male pattern baldness) caused by your genetics. As we age, hormonal changes occur, which are frequently the cause of the loss of hair in men. Here are some of the other reasons why men experience male pattern baldness:
- Genetics. Genetics play a large role in losing hair, especially if your biological mother’s side of the family has male pattern baldness. Most men will start to experience male pattern baldness at the temples or the crown of the head. Male pattern baldness is normally related to problems with androgens, male sex hormones that are responsible for the regulation of hair growth.
- Hormones. Testosterone is normally responsible for severe loss of hair in men. As our bodies age, hormone levels will change, which can lead to losing hair. We treat hormonal loss with effective treatments like hormone replacement therapy and nutritional supplements and dietary changes.
- Medications. Certain medications will lead to hair problems. Drug-induced hair loss is common when you are taking medication for cholesterol, anticoagulants, blood pressure medication, depression medication, and acne treatments. We can identify which medications could be causing the loss of hair, and develop a personalized patient treatment program to target hair loss problems and target imbalances that cause other health issues.
- Stress. Higher stress levels lead to a number of health problems including losing hair. We find when too much cortisol is released into the body, it causes hair loss to occur.
