WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS IN MEN?

Hair loss in men is common due to a genetic condition present in at least half of the male population worldwide. Although it is not the only cause of baldness, a diagnosis is often required to know better what may be the reason in some cases.

The most common reasons for hair loss are:

  • Androgenetic alopecia. A hereditary genetic factor that may occur around the age of 18 due to an increase in androgens (male hormones) in the body. Ironically, it is the same hormone that stimulates facial hair growth. Men with more facial hair are more susceptible to suffer from hair loss over the years.
  • Alopecia areata. It is a condition in which hair is lost in certain areas of the head, leaving circular bald spots on the scalp about the size of a coin or bigger. It’s one of the easiest to identify due to its characteristic symptoms.
  • Diseases. Chronic conditions such as diabetes and lupus can cause significant hair loss due to the medication used in their treatment.
  • Poor nutrition. Malnutrition may cause damage to your body and hair; a diet lacking of B and C vitamins, as well as of minerals like zinc, iron and sulfur, may be the reason for hair loss.
  • Stress and bad habits. Smoking and stress can negatively affect the hair growth cycle causing telogen effluvium, a sudden (but reversible) hair loss due to these and other causes, such as consuming certain types of medications and hormonal treatments, among others.

These are just some of the most common reasons why you may be losing hair, so it is essential that you go to a specialist to determine the precise cause.
