The number of dermatologists Dr. Geri Shapiro shows that hair loss is more serious than aging and heredity, namely:
– Eyelid or hair loss:
"If you notice hair loss in other parts of the body with your hair, something is happening," Shapiro said.
If you lose your hair or lashes, this means you have a serious form of autoimmune alopecia, unlike male alopecia, which leads to hair loss in larger quantities, and in several parts of the body to the scalp, where the body believes the follicles of the hair are dangerous and attacking, It causes hair loss from the follicle.
Other autoimmune conditions that can cause hair loss in this way include thyroid and lupus diseases. Doctors can use blood analysis to determine the exact cause of hair loss.
– Feel it all the time:
Reduced hair loss can mean that you are ill or you do not get enough of the essential nutrients your body needs.
For example, if you do not get enough zinc, you may experience diarrhea, severe weight loss and hair loss as a side effect. Malnutrition can lead to hair loss.
Here, you should be sure you have a balanced diet that contains plenty of fresh products and healthy fats such as nuts, protein, and water.
– Muscle aches:
When hair loss and muscle pain occur simultaneously, it is possible that a person suffers from hypothyroidism, the type of self-immune hormone imbalance.
Initially, there are no symptoms of hypothyroidism, but because the body deals with hormonal imbalance, tiredness, weight gain, muscle pain, hair loss.
Hypothyroidism can be treated with medications prescribed by a physician and replaced by a hormonal body that the body can not produce alone..
–Nails are brittle:
Lack of iron, anemia species, occurs when the body can not produce enough healthy red blood cells. "If someone is missing this, they may have side effects such as broken nails and hair loss," Dr. Shapiro said.
Iron deficiency can make a person vulnerable to fatigue and weakness. Other symptoms include chest pain and cold in the hands and feet.
Iron additives can help treat the condition as well as the medications the doctor may prescribe for the patient.
–High blood pressure or high blood cholesterol despite taking medicines:
Cholesterol lowering agents cause hair loss as a side effect, claims Dr Shapiro. But chances are rare, only 1 percent of people taking cholesterol drugs report hair loss, claims Harvard Medical School.
It is well known that blood pressure medications cause hair loss, although doctors are still uncertain about the exact mechanism of this connection.
"People should check with their doctors whether hair loss is associated with medication," advises Dr. Shapiro.
–Skin rash on the face or body:
Lupus, or hypothyroidism or iron deficiency, is defined as an autoimmune disease, and hair loss is one of the common symptoms.
In addition, these diseases can cause skin rashes throughout the body in response to an infection.
