Testosterone hair loss

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone hair loss


Avatar m tn hi my hair started fulling out in November i have lost a few big patches which is scary. I was advised to try Nourkrin tablets which are expenice but any price is worth my hair growing back. They take a couple on months to kick in they say. Ive been taking them for 5 weeks now and just now 5 weeks in i can see slight hair growth on my bald patches.
Avatar m tn s natural healing mechanisms to target the cause of the problem, as opposed to merely tackling the symptoms. It would be wrong to present herbal hair loss remedies as a miracle solution for all sufferers - there is however growing evidence to support the view that some herbal remedies offer real hope to many people. Let's examine the case for some of the more popular remedies to determine if they're worth trying.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had hair loss post tx, like 1 yr. later. I am having alot of hair loss in the past 3 weeks. I am also wondering if it is o.k. to take hair vitamins. Not currently on tx. I take fish oil, garlic, vit D and calcium. I think since I am not on tx. that this is O.K. Am I wrong?
Avatar f tn I know that the testosterone could be the culpret with hair loss, but the suddenness of the hair loss makes me question whether it is the cause. I have an appointment in a few weeks with my GYN to discuss my October lab work. I am in my late 50's and I don't think that many women in their 50's and 60's know how much better testosterone can make you feel - energy and sense of well being. I hope that I don't have to give it up.
329165 tn?1515471990 It is a phenomenon that occurs after pregnancy, major surgery, drastic weight loss or extreme stress in which you loss great amount of hair every day usually when shampooing or brushing. Antidepressant, beta-blockers can also cause hair loss. To avoid great hair loss you can go to your doctor if you think it is side effect of your medication or if due to stress try to relax.
Avatar m tn I recently got blood work done. I had been complaining of fatigue, brain fog, and most notably, hair thinning and shedding. Free T4: 1.16 (ng/dl) T 3 Total: 1.25 (ng/dl) TSH: 4.92(miu/ml) Free testosterone: 13.5(pg/ml) Testosterone Total : 283(ng/dl) range (249-836) My doctor noted mildly elevated levels of TSH and so prescribed synthroid 25mcg daily and to recheck levels in 3 months.
1281181 tn?1271688273 Hello, I recommend testing for both Ferritin and Vitamin D Hydroxy 25; deficiencies in both of these can cause hair loss and are common in people w/ Hashi's.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am not aware of L arginine and Lo orthinine causing any changes in testosterone levels which effect hair loss. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn When I was diagnosed with diabetes, my doctor said my testosterone was low. I had experienced hair loss and I only had to shave every third day. After I started a testosterone treatment, my hair came back and, unfortunately, I had to start back shaving daily. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hi. I am 18 years old, and have been having issues with hair loss. It all began about 2 years ago when I initially switched up my diet and lost weight quite rapidly. I lost my period for about 6 months and my hair shed. I had blood work done then, and no irregularities were present. My hair loss eventually subsidized (although my hair never fully grew back), and my period returned. However, in June I missed my period, and my hair loss returned.
Avatar m tn I was having usual symptoms of hypothyroidism - fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, hair loss, etc. Have been on Levothyroxine for several months now and have seen improvements in all symptoms except hair loss. I'm also on Plavix (due to a TIA), which I understand can also cause hair loss. I started on it shortly before beginning to exhibit thyroid symptons. I've had breast cancer, so can't take estrogen.
Avatar f tn I suggest u get ur testosterone checked. The #1 symptom is hair loss in women and hair growth in other unexpected places. I have really high testosterone I'm trying to lower, it has been making me lose a lot of hair and I'm only 29. I have high testosterone from PCOS. MAKE SURE UR DOCS LOOK INTO THAT. I started intense cardio, eating foods with little carbs and low sugar, and drinking spearmint tea. Also thinking about colon hydrotherapy.
Avatar f tn My testosterone seemed fine - I became very upset and took my shower hair ball to my doc in a ziplock bad (I have a lot of hair and doc seemed dismissive of my hair loss) she was shocked and ordered labs....my testosterone came back high. I am taking 100mg of spironolactone and liquid rogaine. It has been almost 5 months and my hair loss stopped at month 2 and my hair is regrowing now, I have 2 inch long fairly dense hair growing in my balding spots.
Avatar m tn Can you tell me any home based methods to stop hair loss.
Avatar f tn You should see a dermatologist, Alice. The eyebrow hair loss is behaving like alopecia, but the head hair loss isn't.
Avatar m tn While stress is a known culprit for hair loss, the loss of hair can also be due to anemia, male pattern of hair loss (due to your age and hormonal and genetic factors) or due to a scalp condition such as dermatitis or dandruff. Sometimes low testosterone too causes hair loss. Hence, these conditions should be ruled out too. If your thinning of hairs is mainly affecting the top of head and the temple area, then probably you have male pattern of baldness.
Avatar m tn Hi , THANKS for u r reply but there is no MPB but my hair is thinning and there is no excessive hair loss. So can excessive mastrubation or bad diet cause it?can my hair have the kind of thickness it earlier through proper diet?
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 n tn From another site: "Most men are genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness. It is the effect of hormones on the hair follicle that produces male pattern baldness. Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. DHT has an adverse affect on the hair follicles.
329165 tn?1515471990 I consulted a Doctor at a Hair Clinic (Ashley and Martin) and I am now taking Hair loss-vitamins and got some tips on what types of food to add to my diet: nuts, fish, avocado, olives - thus good natural oils. They also have a cap with laser points in it and can be used at home, 15 minutes a day. He showed me some before and after pictures of clients that have used it and I am almost sold on this one, except it is $2800 for this baby!
