Que: Of late, I can see my hair is thinning and I am not sure why it is happening. My doctor suggested a blood test, which I did get, but there was nothing in the same. So what could be causing my hair loss?
Ans: The most common cause of hair loss in most men happens to be male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia and the diagnosis is based on the pattern and the history of hair loss in the family. Many patients are often asked to get blood tests as well, and if you go to meet a hair specialist you might be asked to get the same too. The reason for your hair loss could be due to a multiple reasons, including diet, hormonal changes, thyroid or even stress. The only way to determine the reason for your hair loss would be to meet a hair specialist.
