  Articles

If you start to go bald, you may feel like you are losing some of your personality. Understanding the cause of excessive hair loss can help you decide if treatment options are right for you or if your hair will grow back.

These are some of the common causes of hair loss in men.

Surgery or illness

If you have recently had major surgery or are recovering from a serious illness, hair loss is normal. Many people experience dramatic hair loss a few weeks after major surgery or illness.

Although the level of hair loss may seem excessive, it is really nothing more than a reaction to a specific event, and after a while the hair will return to normal.

Medicines

Some blood thinners (drugs that help prevent blood from clotting or clotting) and many chemotherapy drugs used in cancer treatments are well known for causing hair loss. Hair usually reappears after stopping the drug.

Some antidepressants can also cause hair loss, and too much vitamin A can have the same effect.

Hormonal imbalance

Testosterone is a hormone that, among other things, is responsible for a deeper voice, muscle growth, and sexual desire.

When your body converts testosterone to the less useful dihydrotestosterone (DHT), you may experience hair loss. DHT attacks and shrinks hair follicles and can cause hair loss or thinning.

Thyroid problems

Patients with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism often experience hair loss due to the accelerated conversion of testosterone to DHT. Even people who undergo thyroid treatment are not immune to hair loss related to their condition.

Stress

If you've been under intense pressure at work or at home, you can blame your hair loss on stress. Excessive physical or emotional stress can cause the cessation of normal hair growth, dropped out after two or three months.

Fortunately, stress-related hair loss is rarely permanent.

Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that is also aggravated (exacerbated) by stress. It causes hair loss in round spots on the scalp and other parts of the body, as your immune system attacks the hair follicles.

About 5% of people with alopecia lose hair all over the scalp. Hair usually grows back, but hair loss often recurs.

Other reasons

Certain yeast infections can lead to hair loss. Hair loss can also indicate an underlying problem, such as diabetes or lupus.

Since it is not always possible to determine the cause of rapid or excessive hair loss, it is always worth consulting a doctor to diagnose the cause of hair loss.
