Thank you for your interesting question. In order to provide an accurate recommendation regarding your hair loss
, a doctor
would need to review your entire medical record and also perform a thorough physical exam. In addition, you may require blood testing as part of your workup. After collecting this information, a doctor would then be able to discuss possible causes and make recommendations regarding treatment. Therefore, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with a primary care physician.
There are many different causes of hair loss. Certain hormonal disorders, such as hyper- and hypothyroidism, can affect hair appearance and growth, and you may require blood testing to evaluate thyroid function. Some autoimmune disorders can cause destruction of hair follicles or the underlying skin and lead to hair loss. A common condition called telogen effluvium can cause all the hairs on your head to sync with regard to their normal turnover cycles, thus leading to appreciable hair loss. If you are male, then this hair loss may be androgen-related and may be normal. There are some drugs and cosmetic procedures they may help with loss. In general, however, it is important to determine the medical cause of your hair loss before pursuing vitamin supplementation as a treatment. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with a primary care doctor
