Not everybody knows that hair loss in itself is not a medical condition. It’s rather a sign of your body losing balance. Today I will focus on the five most frequent reasons for hair loss i.e. vitamin and mineral deficiencies, skin conditions, chronic diseases, hormonal imbalance,and long-lasting stress. To start with, let me emphasisethat apart from these five reasons the list of ailments due to which hair loss can occur is really extensive. Each patient necessitates an individual approach. Thus, the sooner we recognize the reasons and start treatment, the better the effect that can be achieved in fighting hair loss.

Vitamin and minerals deficiencies, long-lasting stress

We are all stressed. After all,we live in a hurry, have plenty of obligations and, to top it all off, life is full of surprises. I won’t state anything unusual if I mention that stress really influences our health and our hair badly.Therefore, it is worth relaxing, getting some rest and focusing on positiveaspects of life. For a good start,take a deep breath and go for a walk.Once you are ready with this, it’s time to restock vitamins and minerals in your body. Reasons for hair loss include biotin, vitamin D3, zinc and iron deficiencies.

Skin conditions, hormonal imbalance,and chronic diseases

Unfortunately in the case of skin conditions, hormonal imbalance and chronic diseases,the issue is not as simple as that,whichcan be confirmed by patients dealing with seborrhoeic dermatitis or psoriasis. Headseborrhoea usually affectsteenagers, but I increasingly often encounter patients in my practice who started struggling with this issue after the age of 50. In both cases hormonal changes affecting your body exert a huge influence on the disease. Seborrhoeic dermatitis can never be neglected and once you notice the symptoms you should immediately consult a trichologist. Diseases caused by hormonal disorders include e.g. hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. People who have already been dealing with thyroid diseases know that this very tiny organ can be the source of huge problems. When the thyroid produces too much or too little hormones, hair is affected as well.Today’s list will be completed with chronic diseases as those are not without influence on our hair as well. According to latest research,even such conditions as hypertension or increased cholesterol levels can contribute to hair loss!

In the search for hair loss reasons

None of the above-mentioned reasons for hair loss can be considered pleasant and I have limited myself to only some elements of a long list.In many cases appropriate treatment can stop the hair loss process and prevent balding.Do not wait! If worried about the condition of your hair, consult a doctor as soon as possible to select appropriate treatment and implement it at an early stage for the best possible results.
