I’m a woman in my 20s and noticed hair loss around the mid section of my scalp. What are the commonly prescribed methods to tackle hair loss in women who may have hormonal imbalance?

Hi, thank you for your question.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your hair loss problem. We are here to help you.

For your information there are a few factors that could cause hair loss such as:

  • abnormal level of androgen hormones
  • genetics. If you have a family history of baldness
  • stress can cause hair loss
  • chemotherapy
  • autoimmune disease
  • shampooing too often, bleaching and dying your hair makes your hair thinner and weaker
  • low protein diet can lead temporary hair loss

However, there are also some serious conditions that may cause hair loss, including:

  • diabetes
  • thyroid dysfunction
  • iron deficiency anemia

You can discuss with our doctor online to know how to get the right treatment for your condition, as the possible underlying conditions must be treated concurrently.

We hope this answers your questions. Thank You
