Increased hair loss causes a tremendous concussion for both women and men, especially when the hair begins to remain in larger lumps on the comb even in their younger years. Although above a certain age it is a natural phenomenon, but if it occurs prematurely it can also indicate hormone problems. Dr. Judit Bérczy, an endocrinologist at the Buda Endocrine Center, reveals exactly what may be in the background.
Everyone loses their hair
First of all, it’s important to note that everyone’s hair falls out, so if you find a little hair in the bathroom after combing or washing your hair, there’s no need to worry yet, as we could lose up to 100 strands a day. Trouble begins when more than 150 strands fall out, or when the problem is already visibly reduced, or when balding spots occur.
“If there is any disorder in the functioning of the thyroid gland, it unfortunately affects almost the whole body. Weight problems, menstrual disorders, mood swings can occur, and in many cases even increased hair loss, and it is important to be aware that this is often the only warning sign of a thyroid problem. If you experience this or more symptoms, you may want to see a specialist who can easily determine if the problem is present with a simple blood sample. Fortunately, with proper treatment, your symptoms can be reduced or even eliminated.“- says dr. Judit Bérczy, a Endocrinologist of the Buda Endocrine Center.
High testosterone levels
Whether a woman or a man, too high a testosterone level is not desirable in either gender, as it can cause several problems – including severe hair loss. This is technically called androgenic alopecia. In this case, the blood supply to the hair follicles is reduced, so the roots do not get enough nutrients, which causes the fibers to weaken and then die.
In addition to hair loss, testosterone overload can cause a number of problems: paradoxically, women in other regions may have increased hair growth on their mustaches, chin line, breasts around the umbilical cord, and pregnancy problems, acne and oily skin. Fortunately, hair loss can be treated with proper diet, medication, and herbal treatments.
Cushing’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome
Diseases of the adrenal gland hyperactivity include Cushing’s disease and Cushing’s syndrome, respectively. . According to the expert, it is not common, but its recognition and causal therapy can help a lot. Although the two merge in many places, the former is caused by a tumor of the pituitary gland. However, the symptoms are the same, the most important of which are the reddish, rounded, full moon-like, often sore face, drastic weight gain, which is mainly localized on the abdomen, and the lump of fat on the back of the neck may be a call sign. In addition, strong hair loss (androgenic type) is also characteristic, but increased hair removal is observed in other parts of the body. In most cases, the problem can be remedied with surgery.
