When I brought up my hair concern at an annual physical, my doctor tested me for lupus. Fortunately, the tests came back negative. Then I was told that since I wasn’t completely bald, I really didn’t have a problem. So I began to wonder if it was all in my head. When my boyfriend rush his fingers through my hair, all I could think of was whether I was losing fibers. Did this gross him out? Or more importantly, was a lot coming out? Needless to say, that relationship didn’t last long, lacking trust and the basic belief that he could find me attractive in this condition. I didn’t dare ask my friends for a second opinion, because I didn’t want them to investigate my scalp. After another discourage physical (with no answers), I considered my dermatologist. Instead of dismissing my concerns as mere vanity, he immediately wrote up requests for endocrine blood tests, which prompted my general practitioner to finally cave and grant me a specialist guideline.
There are many causes of hair fall, from stress to chemotherapy, but 90 percent of hair loss is genetic and needs to be treated with medication. It can also be a sign of a thyroid disorder, says my endocrinologist who diagnosed me with mild hypothyroidism. “It’s a good thing you came in when you did,” she told me on my first interview. “It gets more complicated — and possibly dangerous — the older you get, especially if you want to have a baby.” Apparently, hair loss during pregnancy is a big red flag. “One out of 50 women is diagnosed with hypothyroidism while pregnant — it’s still the most common cause of mental check in children”.
The average age for women dealing with thinning hair is 25 to 35 — that it’s just another “gift” of menopause is a myth. Also, we can’t simply criticism our mothers, as previously believed — if there’s baldness anywhere in your family tree, you’re at risk. Unlike male-pattern baldness, where patches of hair loss over time, female hair loss means a reduction in hair volume, making transplantation extremely difficult.The total number of hairs doesn’t always decrease, but the diameter of each strand shrinks. And too-thin hairs won’t grow past a certain length — which explains the baby fuzz around my hairline.
