What is Hair Loss
Hair is a great way to measure one’s health. There are many things which can cause hair loss such as sickness, stress, bad nutrition, low testosterone, and low HGH levels. Men who experience thinning hair or baldness it is important to find out the reason for the condition and then you can find the best solution. Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss and there are two major types: Alopecia Areata and Alopecia effluvium. The most common are Alopecia effluvium and it is the least severe of the two. In this case, your hair follicles become dormant and stop growing. Within a few months, these hairs will fall out of your head. In this case, within the next 9 months, the hairs will regrow, and this is typically called thinning hair. Alopecia Areata is when your follicles are attacked by your white blood cells, causing patches of hair to fall out. We call this balding, and though it starts with thinning, your hair may or may not grow back.
Hair Loss and Testosterone/HGH
Men’s hair loss and the deficiency of testosterone and HGH are closely related. Much like woman do in Menopause, men have a similar decline in their natural hormones. Understand that a man’s hormones affect almost every body function. Hair loss in men and hormones are closely related. When Testosterone and HGH levels are not optimized, it affects the ability of the scalp to produce and regenerate hair follicles. Testosterone, when it is not optimized, can cause a production of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) a derivative. This DHT can shorten the growth cycle, cause hair to die and regress, thus causing baldness prematurely.
Stress and Hair Loss
Cortisol is a hormone which is produced by stress. Stress is often a result of not having your hormones optimized. Cortisol can lead to hair loss as well as collagen depletion, insulin problems, bone density decline, and overall wellness problems. By optimizing your HGH and Testosterone levels, you can reduce your stress thus counteracting stress related hair loss with help from our hair restoration therapy in Oklahoma City.
Hair Loss and Thyroid Imbalance
Often hair loss is a sign of thyroid issues. When one contracts a thyroid condition, it is usually a symptom of hormone imbalances. When it is noticeable that your hair is becoming more coarse, dry, and more easily tangled, it is a sign that your thyroid (Hypothyroidism) may become a hair loss issue. Hair loss is a typical symptom of thyroid disorders and can occur on the head, face, or body.
Nutrition Deficiencies and Hair Loss
Making sure you eat right is important to keeping your hair. Nutrition is an important part of our hair restoration therapy in Oklahoma City.
