UNDERSTANDING BALDNESS:

Baldness is losing hair or lacking hair on the scalp; it can be partial or complete. Since a long time, baldness is a term associated with men as it affects them more in comparison to women. Previously, this phenomenon occurred in men post 40-45 years but in recent times men of 20-30 years are facing this trauma.

There is no physical discomfort caused by baldness but the dent it causes on one’s appearance, it torments & causes great anguish to them. Balding has been synonymous to old age; thus, making it difficult to be acceptable among young people. This psychological impact leaves a grim sense of distress, demoralization & low self-esteem which overpowers the people facing baldness.

  • CAUSE 1: MALE PATTERN BALDNESS:

    Also known as Androgenic Alopecia is a genetic disposition. If you have baldness running in your family don’t be surprised if it hits you.

    DHT is a male hormone formed when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) converts testosterone into DHT. Increased DHT level is considered to be one of the main culprits in male baldness as it miniaturized the follicles.

    Some diseases create havoc in our system & adversely impact the follicles. Some of them are-

    • THYROID: Thyroid gland produces hormones & increases the metabolism. Hyperthyroidism- excess of hormones & Hypothyroidism- producing less hormones, both of these leads to hair loss & balding.
    • DIABETES: In this condition the insulin production or proper use of it is disturbed. The main function of Insulin is to regulate the sugar levels but in Diabetic patients the imbalance occurs leading to excessive hair loss.
