What Causes Hair Loss in Women?
For the most part, androgenic alopecia is the cause of hair loss in women, also known as female pattern baldness. If not this, there are other underlying conditions most of which are temporary or scar related. Hormonal imbalances, such as thyroid conditions, may often involve hair loss as a side effect. This is the primary reason that it is imperative to perform extensive evaluations of a woman’s medical history, current health, medications, and even tests to attempt to ascertain the cause of hair loss. Once a condition has been identified, it is possible to stop further loss and even reverse the loss and begin hair regrowth.
