Testosterone and grey hair

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and grey hair


Avatar m tn Just a guess, but maybe the unrest you are feeling in your hands and legs/feet are caused by the testosterone increase; thus, creating more irritability. As far as the grey hair...I turned completely grey when I was 17. Sometimes that is a genetic thing. Has anyone else in your family turned grey at an early age? It's also a proven fact that we, obviously go through varying stages throughout our lives which has a definite impact on our hormone levels.
Avatar n tn You can have high levels of testosterone without all the signs of PCOS and that can cause hirsutism. High testosterone in women is often labelled PCOS for reasons I don't fully understand even if one has only one symptom (eg hirsutism) and no sign of polycystic ovaries. Also, menstrual irregularities, not just amenorrhea, can be related to PCOS/high testosterone. My very thin daughter had treatment resistant acne and was found to have high testosterone, but no other signs of PCOS.
1093601 tn?1257207882 I read a thing a while back that said people can actually start getting gray hair in their early 20's and they just don't notice it because it's one or two hairs out of the hundreds of thousands or many you have on your head. I noticed when I was 21 I had a gray hair as long as the rest of my hair and if you'll look at my profile pictures you'll see my hair is down past my shoulders a little bit. I think I have one other one but can't remember precisely.
Avatar m tn and one more i tell u it is not happening gentically , as in my family no one suffered at so early age my grandfather got started grey hair in the age of 40+ and same as my father even my elder brother is in 30 age he has no grey hair.
Avatar n tn Surprisingly my chest hairs/face hair are mostly grey . I have diagnosed Hashi/Hypo in 2006 but my grey hairs since i was in late 20s . I am sure grey hair is related with autoimmue thyroditis.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts. Generally no treatment is required but they become painful then it means they are infected,Then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Levoxyl - 0.125MG daily with Cytomel 5 MCG 2x daily - for the past six weeks. My light blonde hair is now turning a patchy grey brown color, is extremely dry and I'm losing a lot every time I comb or brush. Is this the type of hair I'm going to have for the rest of my life on Levoxyl? I'm eating healthily, taking omega 3 and doing all the right things for healthy hair otherwise. Do you have any recommendations for me?
Avatar f tn Leslee was a natural blonde came in curly and Platinum grey, she goes to a hair stylist and has it shaped and trimmed. It looks good on her. she does add some hair color to tone down the grey.

Avatar n tn I too went grey early dont know why just bad luck i suppose very annoying though, i started gettitng greys at 14 and was permantly colouring my hair since 24 i am now 42 so you can imagine it just becomes part of your life it you dont want it to be grey dont worry most of your friends wont be that far behind you it seems to me more and more people are going greyer earlier maybe its all the modern day stress, good luck.
Avatar f tn I am 9 months post tx (and SVR) and my hair is finally back to normal. I did have to cut it very short (and I always had hair past my shoulders) but it was worth it. it looks so much healthier.
Avatar f tn Man, we can just not win. I pluck out my grey hair sometimes as it doesn't match the rest of my hair and you have your hair the color you like with the grey and it's turning dark! Yeesh! It's frustrating, I know! And yes, this is definitely a weird thing you are describing! So, I did a little reading. Some people grey due to genetics, that will usually never revert back to an original color. Others grey due to health situations.
Avatar n tn A lot of women with cysts or PCOS have elevated testosterone levels and therefore, have excessive hair, thinning hair, etc. Losing weight and other meds help control the symptoms. Talk to your doctor. If you don't feel that they give you the attention you need, please look for another doctor that will :) Good luck!
Avatar m tn I'm 25 and at 21 I started to see grey hair. Now they've became too much especially on the right side of my head. My father used to grow gery hair at young ages. At first I thought it can be normal but now it worries me that it's just much more on one side of my head . Does it have any specific reason? Or just gens?
Avatar m tn m not sure what you mean by grey- the hair or the skin? Pubic and body hair gets grey like any other and can even be albino. (I actually once met a girl with white eyelashes on one eye, quite freaky.) Anyway, if it's just the hair, no worries that's pretty normal. Not everyone starts going grew in their pubic regions, but it does happen. Now if its the skin that could likely be from foods- malnutrition or something else and you should see a dr.
Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old female and have excess body and facial hair. I have hair in my toes, my lower back, my stomach, my arms and fingers, my butt, my upper lip and chin hair grow very fast, and even in my breasts. My family is not hairy and my mom and sister barely have any body or facial hair. My period is normal, but I did grow very fast and stopped growing at a young age. I do not know what I have but I want to know. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Puberty has been progressing smoothly in all areas except facial hair. I have body hair (except chest hair hah) so it seems facial hair is the only lacking aspect of pubertal development. The only place that hair is noticeable is on my upper lip, and even there it is weak. my other problem is that it seems during this growth spurt that my head did not grow with my body. I have a disproportionally small head for my body.
Avatar f tn The left side is pretty uniform, with dark black hair. There are little to no grey hair on that side. The right side is unruly and curly with almost all of the hair grey. I brush the beard several times a day and I use beard oil at least four times a week to keep the beard moisturized. I do not use beard shampoo, yet. In doing some research, I've read about potential conditions I may have, or that this may simply be genetic.
1657684 tn?1307375035 s most likely hereditary. Ask your parents and close relatives when their hair started to go grey. Going grey in your teens is unusual but perfectly natural. There are also some conditions that can cause white hair, notably a deficiency of B12 or a thyroid imbalance, and if you're very concerned and don't have a family history of early greying, you might want to ask a doctor whether they can give you some information about these conditions or test for them.
Avatar m tn I have been having excessive body hair growth and not so much growth in my scalp region. So is excessive body hair a side effect of levothyroxine?
Avatar m tn I still have strong cravings almost daily for sex, which I figured at my age would have greatly subsided. My hair has not turned grey yet, and I must work at it to keep from undressing beautiful women in my mind. I just want things the way they were prior to the surgery. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Researchers from University Hospital’s Department of Dermatology in Sweden conducted a study where participants suffering vitiligo (white patches on the skin) increased their consumption of folic acid and vitamin B12 and found re-pigmentation of grey hair in 64% of the patients and 6 patients experiencing total re-pigmentation! To add, lack of vitamin B6, folate and vitamin B12 increases amino acid homocysteine.
10870053 tn?1416581194 ve been pregnant my belly has been getting very hairy and I do not like it lol. Will this hair go away when my daughter is born? Someone please help me I'm freaking out....
Avatar f tn I have a total T3 in the upper end/top of the reference range due to using T4 and T3 for hypothyroidism. However, recently I developed moderate acne and noticed new hair growth at the corners of my mouth and in between my eyebrows. It turns out that i have a mildly elevated total testosterone level but normal SHBG. Could the elevated total testosterone be causing these symptoms and be enough to diagnose PCOS or is my elevated total testosterone in someway linked to my T3 use?
