Androgenetic alopecia or male/female pattern hair loss

What is this?

It is a pattern of hair loss in men wherein the hair loss starts from the corners of the hairline, the hairline moves up gradually and finally baldness sets in covering the entire front and top. Simultaneously, in some people, hair thinning starts from the crown as well. 
In women there is generally thinning along the central parting, which keeps getting thinner and wider. 

Why does it happen?

The very name ‘androgenetic alopecia’ has the reason in it.  it happens because of ‘genetic’ sensitivity of the hair to ‘androgens’. Androgens are male hormones , which get converted to the active form DHT. This DHT then damages hair follicles that are genetically predisposed to DHT sensitivity. 

At What age does it start?

The age can vary from as young as 10 years (yes!, we are seeing that nowadays) to as late as 70 as well. Your diet, lifestyle, exercise and activity levels, outdoor time, stress, sleep quality, and environmental factors (pollution, toxins in the food and water, etc) all play a role in the age at which the hairloss starts. 

How does it affect us?

Androgenetic alopecia is not a life threatening disorder, but it definitely is a life altering disorder. Any person undergoing hairloss suffers from a great deal of mental trauma as it affects our looks. And our looks are directly related to our confidence levels. Even the slightest bit of hair density reduction can shatter our sense of well-being, impair our social life, be a road block to professional success and also ruin our libido and sexual health. This makes it extremely important for us to treat each patient of hairloss in a very sensitive manner, understanding his or her needs in terms of recovering their hair and regaining lost confidence. 

Can hairloss be because of some internal disease?

Androgenetic alopecia has now been linked to a variety of internal disorders like metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes mellitus, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, pcod in women, thyroid imbalance, atopic dermatitis etc. Therefore, in-depth evaluation of each case of hair loss is extremely crucial to understand underlying abnormalities.

Any illness, surgery, change of residence or city, sudden intensive exercise, crash dieting, loss of weight, acute stress or anxiety can precipitate the process of hairloss.

How can it be prevented?

We can definitely delay the onset of androgenetic alopecia by following a healthy lifestyle of nutritious diet, exercise, good sleep, meditation and yoga, and trying to stay happy and relaxed at all times. Along with this, consultation with an experienced Dermatotrichologist or a leading hair transplant surgeon who would be able to examine and assess your hair well and suggest appropriate treatment is an absolute essential.
