Female hair loss – dieting and stress can also cause it

A woman’s hair loss can indicate a number of hidden diseases, but even a poorly designed diet, weight loss or detoxification can be behind the phenomenon, which is why more and more women are visiting specialists – drew attention to Dr. Norbert Wikonkál, dermatologist, associate professor of the Dermatology, Gynecology and Dermatology Department of the Semmelweis University.


The condition of the hair and nails reflects the body as a whole. Thus, if, for example, something goes wrong in the metabolic processes or the hormonal system, it can immediately be reflected in the condition of the hair. At the end of winter, when the body’s reserves are exhausted (in addition, many people start dieting at this time as well), hair loss may occur more often.

According to Dr. Norbert Wikonkál, hair loss can also indicate various so-called diseases of civilization, among other things, this can also cause this problem to become more frequent. Stress is known to be behind many organ problems, thus causing changes in the body, even hair loss.

Hair loss can also occur after a serious illness (such as pneumonia) that depletes the body’s energy stores. In general, it is true that the lack of nutrients, trace elements, and vitamins is reflected in the hair follicles, so hair loss can also indicate various deficiency states (lack of nutrients, trace elements, microelements), but it can also indicate celiac disease or even thyroiditis.


According to the dermatologist, there is a suitable therapy in the majority of cases, but the real causes must be discovered, which can take even months. The treatment itself is a long process, lasting up to half a year, since it is not the hair, but the hair follicle, and ultimately the patient, that must be cured.
