Hair Loss Conditions
Roughly 95 percent of thinning hair in men is caused by male pattern hair loss, which can manifest as a receding hairline or a thinning patch at the crown of the head. If your hair loss doesn’t match this pattern, you may be among the remaining 5 percent whose hair loss is the result of an underlying health condition such as auto-immune disease, hormonal imbalance, severe trauma or shock to the system, medication side effects or other causes.
When one hears the words ” hair loss”, typically we think of cases of male pattern baldness. However, hair loss affects men and women alike. In fact, hair loss affects about 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States alone. In fact, 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by age 35 and 65% by age 60. In recent years, hair loss has become an epidemic as younger and younger individuals begin to show early signs of hair loss.
