Que: I am 22 years old and I don’t smoke, drink or take any kind of medications. I am 94 kgs in weight and 5’10 in height. For the past two months, I have been losing hair like crazy; every time I run my hand through my hair, I can see a few hair. I even checked my blood pressure and it is almost always between 140-160. What is wrong?
Ans: Loosing 3-4 hair a day is absolutely normal and there is nothing to worry about. However, if you are still worried, you could meet a hair specialist and get yourself checked. Normally, genetic hair loss can be attributed to a range of factors including poor or incorrect diet, low iron content in the body, hormonal issues and thyroid problems. However, your blood pressure should be taken a little more seriously and you should visit a physician to get the same checked, because it looks like you are on the verge of developing hypertension.
