Cause Of Hair Loss

Most people, who are researching the internet for identifying the reasons behind the hair loss they are experiencing, often get confused. The reason being that there is no one single factor that will trigger weight loss and it is always multiple factors at work. Hair loss is more common in men and less common in women. The reason being women do not have a receding hairline like men do and any hair loss, if it happens tends to happen in the middle of the scalp. The most common medical reasons associated with hair loss include hypothyroidism that is attributed to the under-working of the thyroid gland. This thyroid gland located in the neck regulates metabolism and is responsible for the growth and development of the body.

Over-working of the thyroid gland can cause the body to swell and might trigger central obesity. Dermatologists in Delhi also attribute auto-immune diseases like alopecia areata where the body attacks hair follicles thinking them as foreign matter. Scalp infections like ring worm, lichen planus and lupus induced scarring can cause permanent hair loss. Depending on the severity of the hair loss, surgical, non-surgical, oral and laser treatments are available that can cure hair loss. One thing should be kept in mind that hair loss is reversible and eating the right kind of fruits and vegetables along with nuts coupled with proper sleep, exercise will result in having an excellent crop of hair. If any of the four ingredients of a healthy lifestyle like: good food, exercise, sleep and peace of mind are not there, and then hair loss is triggered.

More reasons that can trigger hair loss

  • Protein deficiency: If the body is deficient in proteins and it is not getting the right kind of proteins from plant and animal sources, it will cut off hair growth to hoard protein for othervital bodily functions causing thinning of hair and hair loss.
  • Anaemia and vitamin-A deficiency: Quite often, it has been observed that women experience hair loss due to a low red blood count or due to vitamin A deficiency. At first, you might experience thinning of hair and later on it triggers falling of hair or hair loss. Overdoing vitamin A can also cause hair loss and your dermatologist in Delhi will suggest you the right dose through medication.
  • ¬†Pregnancy or physical trauma: Most women confess that pregnancy and consequent child birth can be a traumatic experience and the stress associated with it can cause hair loss. Any kind of physical injury or accident can also cause hair loss but it is temporary. This phenomenon is called telogen effluvium. In simple words hair goes through various stages like growth, maturity, shedding but any kind of traumatic injury can push more hair in the shedding phase causing hair loss. Even emotional stress like divorce or the death of a loved one can trigger hair loss.

Long term use of birth control pills, anti-depressant, anti-diabetic drugs, polycystic ovarian syndrome, male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness can also trigger temporary or permanent hair loss.
