This video presents What causes hair loss and how to treat
What are the causes and risk factors for hair loss?
Most common causes of hair loss happen on normal unscarred scalp skin. The medical term for hair loss is alopecia. Health conditions also cause hair loss, such as thyroid disease, iron deficiency anemia and secondary syphilis.
How do physicians categorize different types of hair loss?
There are several ways to classify hair loss. It is necessary to examine the scalp first to identify whether hair loss is caused by physical destruction or loss of hair follicles.
What are some specific treatments for hair loss in men?
Finasteride or Propecia
What are some specific treatments for hair loss in women?
Surgical procedures like hair transplants can also be used to fill in bald or thinned-out areas.
What vitamins can assist hair growth?
A good daily multivitamin containing zinc, vitamin B, folate, iron and calcium is highly recommended. However, they are not proven to create any marked benefits in alopecia. Some studies suggest vitamin D can be helpful for hair loss. Lack of iron and vitamin B12 can be diagnosed via blood tests and treated accordingly.
