Hair Disorders/Hair Loss

Gradual permanent hair thinning is part of the normal aging process. However, sudden hair loss in greater amounts than normal can be caused by certain diseases, illnesses, hormone-related disorders, nutritional deficiencies, medication, stress, pregnancy and other factors. Hair loss, or a medical term known as alopecia is a thinning, gradual, or sudden loss of body or scalp hair.

There are three forms of alopecia:-

  • Alopecia areata (hair loss in patches)
  • Alopecia totalis (lose all hair on the scalp)
  • Alopecia universalis (lose all hair on the body). In many of these cases, identifying and treating the underlying cause can stop hair loss and promote regrowth of hair.
