Causes of Androgenetic Alopecia (Pattern baldness)
Androgenetic Alopecia is caused by male hormones that are present in both males and females, combined with the presence of certain genetics. In some cases the hair will only thin out, whilst in others it can cause severe baldness.
Hair growth starts under the skin within hair follicles. Changes in hormones under the skin causes the hair follicles to shrink, ultimately resulting in the thinning of the hair, and preventing new hairs to grow.
Androgenetic Alopecia can usually be diagnosed by examining the scalp by a qualified Doctor. Should there be concerns of other causes of your hair loss, blood tests will help to determine other underlying problems such as changes in hormone levels, low iron levels (anemia) or thyroid problems.
Symptoms of Androgenetic Alopecia
The following symptoms could be signs of Androgenetic Alopecia:
- Hair loss usually starts to occur at temples, crown of the scalp (or both).
- The forehead tends to show more (receding hairline).
- Hair loss doesn’t occur in patches, and rarely progresses to complete baldness.
